Your birth, your way, my support.

 What is a Doula?

 

  A Doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a person who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth.  The doula's job is to help a laboring person have a safe, memorable, and empowering birth. 

 

Benefits of having a Doula.

 

  Studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, and request for epidural by 60%.
