What is a doula?
Doulas are non-medical birth workers. I provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support before, during, and immediately after birth. A doula understands the physiology of birth and will help your partner feel supported. As stated on the DONA website, a birth doula supports a woman’s choices without judgment and without trying to change her mind or convince her of anything. I support your rights to make decisions about birth and postpartum experience. Whether that be navigating family members, doctors and nurses, opinions about how/when you will labor and what postpartum looks like for you.
When should I hire a doula?
You can hire a doula at any point during your pregnancy, but typically interviewing doulas starts around 25 weeks, the earlier the better!
I think I want a doula, but my partner is nervous. Will you replace him or her?
Not at all! My role is to make sure your partner is fully integrated and feels cared for too. A doula can help navigate the birth space while empowering your partner to play an integral l role of in your labor and delivery.
Do you combine HypnoBirthing with doula work?
I have many HypnoBirthing clients hire me as a doula. I do recommend you take the full HypnoBirthing 5 session series however, we can incorporate some of the relaxations into your labor.
Why should I hire you for birth photography?
I truly believe that birth is beautiful. I am passionate about capturing your birth in an intimate and nonintrusive way.
