  • What exactly is a Doula?
    Great question! As a Doula I provide one-on-one care, as well as information, physical support, referrals, resources and emotional support during pregnancy.
  • I am planning a medicated birth, can I still have a Doula?
    Yes! Doulas are not just for unmedicated births. As your Doula I will help you navigate timing your epidural and then assist with positioning using resources from Spinning Babies and Bundle Birth to work with your body to encourage optimal birth positioning.
  • Will you replace my partner?
    No! I am here to support your partner as they support you. My goal is to empower the whole family and to make sure that you are held prenatally and beyond. Sometimes that is as simple as making sure you both are hydrated during labor and other times it's demonstrating laboring positions. Research has found that combining a supportive partner and a doula significantly lowers a mother’s risk of Cesarean compared to just having a supportive partner alone
  • When in my pregnancy should I contact you?
    When YOU are ready! I have had clients hire me as early as 10 weeks and as "late" as 39 weeks. I believe that building a relationship where you feel safe with me is one of the most important aspects of our work so ideally we have had time to build a relationship and prepare for your birth together.
  • Do you work on a sliding scale?
    Yes! If you are finding that the investment does not work for your family, I will work with you. I never want a family to miss out on support due to funding. We will make it work!
