I am a student doula and aspiring midwife. I would be honored and delighted to support you and your partner through your birth experience. I believe that birth is a natural process and an important transformational moment that should be celebrated and protected. As your doula, I would provide emotional and physical support during early labor through childbirth and immediate postpartum, guide you through relaxation techniques and suggest strategies for pain management. I would work to safeguard a calm and loving environment in your birthroom and assist you in making the best possible decisions for your baby and yourself. I am interested in working with mothers and families from all backgrounds and feel comfortable supporting births in hospitals, birth centers and at home. I am conversational in Spanish and French. Please contact me to schedule an interview!
Services provided: 2-3 prenatal visits, support during early labor through childbirth and the immediate postpartum, 2 postpartum visits to assist with breastfeeding and infant care and to discuss your birth experience. I am also available anytime by phone or email throughout pregnancy.
