Other roles I play as your birth doula include:*

  • Assisting you (and your partner) to prepare and carry out your plans for the birth.
  • Understanding the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of women in labor – and accommodating your unique concerns as outlined in your birth plan.
  • Staying by your side throughout your entire labor.
  • Facilitating communication between you, your partner, and clinical care providers.
  • Nurturing your memory of your birth experience.
