Have you thought about what your birth will be like at the time of delivery? Having a Birthing Plan, being aware of the many possibilities surrounding birth and making conscientious decisions can make the difference in a satisfying birth experience. Women are designed to give birth. You have the capability to handle each aspect of this journey through pregnancy, delivery and postpartum. A doula can show you options, support and encouragement. Preparing a birth plan, sticking with you and your partner, offering emotional, physical and informational support through all phases of labor & delivery are just a few of the benefits of doula care. During contractions is not a good time to deal with unnecessary pressure from the doctor or nurses. Pain coping techniques, knowledge, guidance and moral support can make a big difference in your birth outcome. Let me guide you in exploring the possibilities so you can achieve your desired intentional labor and delivery. My Doula Services include Postpartum Doula assistance. Your birth, Your way, whether traditional choices or alternative views~
