The word ‘doula’ (pronounced ‘doo-la’) is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘a woman who serves’. More recently, it refers to someone who offers emotional and physical support to a woman and her partner before, during and after childbirth. A doula believes in ‘mothering the mother’, enabling a woman to have the most satisfying experience that she can, from pregnancy and into motherhood. This type of support allows the whole family to relax and enjoy the experience too.
What can You Expect from Me if We Choose to Work Together?
Your birth experience is exactly that, YOURS. The people this experience is going to have the biggest impact on is yourself, your partner and your baby. My job is to be there to help you find what it is you want to experience and to help you reach those goals. As each birth is individual unto itself, I hold a high standard of flexibility and will help you cultivate the Trust in yourself, your body and your baby and the abilities you each possess to give birth in a way that is divinely right for you.
Our prenatal visits will be geared solely around you and your partners needs and will be done so in a way that holds space for you to be heard in all your thoughts, desires, fears and excitements. I strongly believe that pregnancy and childbirth are a transition from Maiden to Mother and as such, deserve to be honored in a way that suits who you are in your True Self.
