Why Doula?

Listen as Mark Hill of Vision Media interviews me about my work:

 

 

 

 

Research shows that continuous support from a trained doula helps with pain and stress management during labor and delivery.1  Nurses are too busy and simply are not trained to provide this type of care.

 

Doulas encourage self-advocacy for both the birthing person as well as their partner. Doulas also help birth partners understand the power of their role by reinforcing comfort, support, and advocacy strategies. New mothers and their birth partners are more confident with the continuous care from the doula. With that support, they understand how they can stay more in control of the childbirth process. 

Ask about scholarships for persons of LGBTQ+ community, or of Black, Brown & Indigenous heritage.
