WHAT IS A DOULA?
I am a professional birth doula & labor support specialist. (DONA trained). I offer knowledge and experience to assist in your birth experience. I help during each stage of pregnancy, offering support and resources when needed. I assist in completing your birth plan and help you keep feeling motivated and empowered throughout your pregnancy.
It is my mission to make sure your questions are answered and you are equipped with the latest evidence based information and tools for decision making during each step of your journey.
During a hospital labor, I explain the risks and benefits of any procedure presented by your caregiver. I support you in your decisions and have no other agenda. I act as an advocate as well as constant support, as doulas do not change shifts. I will be there from the moment you call, until after you are comfortably nestling your baby. Breastfeeding assistance is offered.
Such benefits include shorter labor and less need for interventions such as forceps, vacuum extraction, and cesarean.
I am the mother of two healthy grown daughters. I live in San Francisco California.
You can trust that your birth experience and personal matters will be handled with professionalism, integrity, and the utmost discretion. I commit to be available on-call starting at 38 weeks and provide continuous labor support beginning either at home or in your chosen birth place. Being a source of comfort to a mother during this very important experience is an honor. I do so with respect and reverence.
