A woman who does not know her options, has no options.

  • What is a birth doula?
    A birth doula supports families through the journey of labor and delivery. Whether verbal encouragement, comfort measures, or positional advice, a birth doula helps guide the mother through her joyful birth story. Educated birth support is not to be underestimated. Studies show that doula assisted births are about 30% less likely to have a C-section or require Pitocin.
  • Can I see that study?
    Sure! https://www.cochranelibrary.com/cdsr/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD003766.pub5/abstract?cookiesEnabled Also, a helpful summary of that information and more can be found at: https://evidencebasedbirth.com/the-evidence-for-doulas/
  • Do I have to want a "natural" birth in order to benefit from having a doula?
    Medication does not exclude a mother from needing another to support her through one of the most powerful, intimate moments of her life. Whether you desire a fully medicated birth or want to deliver in the privacy of your own home, you will benefit from the care of a doula.
  • How much do you charge?
    Investing in the support a family needs is worth every penny. My standard rate is $1,500, which includes two sessions prior to birth, on- call period of two weeks before and after estimated due date, support through the entirety of labor, and one postpartum visit.
