As a Birth Doula, it is my goal to bring confidence and centeredness to expecting parents by strengthening them with knowledge. This helps to remove fear and anxiety, therefore creating an environment conducive to a desirable birth experience. During 2 home visits, I will discuss the family's vision for their ideal birth. As a Registered Nurse, I know that labor can change directions sometimes. I prepare families for those possibilities so that any transitions will be smooth and peaceful. I help ensure this by being present from the time labor begins up to 2 hours after the birth. I support all types of birth including induction, VBAC, epidural, as well as planned and unplanned c-sections.
