A Doula is:
A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. -DONA
A full spectrum doula is:
A support person who brings the doula model of care to any pregnancy discourse and outcome, including miscarriage, planned abortion or medical termination, stillbirth, surrogacy or adoption.
Studies have shown that continuous support during labor results in increased normal vaginal births, reduced use of pain medication, more favorable emotions toward childbirth, less risk of Cesarean, shorter labors, and babies that are less likely to have complications at birth. -Evidence Based Birth
As a full spectrum doula, I understand that those who have had past traumatic experiences regarding pregnancy, childbirth, sexual abuse, or otherwise, may experience effects of their trauma during their pregnancy and/or birth experience.
With training in childbirth education, trauma, health and safety, and Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, I provide support for any pregnancy situation, planned or unexpected.
Trained as a Birth Doula and working toward DONA certification, I offer Birth and Full Spectrum Doula services that include:
- Prenatal intake and education
- Birth support
- Emotional support and encouragement
- Massage and counter pressure
- Rotational positioning
- Support to family members
- Support for any situation across the spectrum of pregnancy outcomes
- Referral to other professionals when needs are outside of my scope of practice
Cost is income-based.
