Birth Doula Support

Doulas-01.png

A seasoned doula can work with you allaying worries, questions and fears between prenatal appointments and planning for your birth support.

During your labor, she can help you listen to your intuition, guide you with comfort techniques, and help you determine when to go to the hospital.
