Doula Services

We believe that every woman should have the birth experience she desires. Our mission is to support you throughout your pregnancy and help you have a safe, positive, and empowering birth experience, no matter what your birth plan includes. 

What is a birth doula?

A doula provides continuous physical comfort, emotional support, and information to women during labor and initial breastfeeding. She does not replace the partner’s role during childbirth but, provides guidance for the partner as needed. She will help labor progress by assisting with position changes and pushing. With a doula, the need for interventions is often decreased.

How does your partner benefit?

Remember, this is a special time for both of you. Your partner most likely does not have specialized training in assisting a woman through labor. You need them to be there emotionally for you, holding your hand and reassuring you. A doula will help them know what to do. Why should your partner be stressed and worried about being able to adequately assist you in labor? They will already be anxious and worried about your safety. If you have a 16, 24, or 36 hour labor, how is your partner going to assist you after birth, and help take care of your new baby while exhausted? You are going to need rest and you'll need your partner even more after birth.

Special Support During Labor

Please note that labor does not have a schedule or time frame.  With this in mind, we plan ahead!  You will get two Doula's from the very start! 

Priscilla & Kristina work together and rotate on a 12-hour shift so you have a fresh Doula throughout your labor.  This is the same type of schedule nurses work. 

During your consultation, you will get to meet both Doula's - Priscilla & Kristina. Also, you will learn how well they communicate and work as a team in order to provide you with the best doula care.

What if you plan on having an epidural?

A doula can still play an important role in the delivery and birth. You will need continuous physical and emotional support until & after you receive the epidural. At times epidurals may only take partially. The doula helps with in bed positioning to keep the labor progressing. She also assists with relaxation techniques, support for the partner, answers questions, assists with pushing and initial breastfeeding.

Support Before and After Labor

Together, we will prepare for your baby’s birthday by answering your questions, offering childbirth classes, and helping you create your birth plan.
