Birth Doula Services

DEDICATED DOULAS FOR BIRTH JOURNEYS

Our birth doulas accompany families on their journey toward a safe and satisfying birth experience. We draw on professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, at times, communication with staff to help you make informed decisions as they arise in pregnancy and labor. We provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning, & other techniques for comfort.
