About Doula Services
A doula helps provide, in every way she can, a positive birthing environment for a laboring woman and her partners. She does not perform any medical procedures. A doula is your advocate, not your voice. She believes in the birth process, and helps provide constant physical and emotional support by suggesting position changes for comfort, offering sips of fluids, massage, praise, and encouragement as well as fostering positive communication among the birth team.

A doula can greatly decrease your potential for interventions, medications and cesarean birth.
