However much we know about birth in general, we know nothing about a particular birth. We must let it unfold with its own uniqueness.
As a Doula, I strive to lessen the disparities woman face during childbirth by providing them with a choice in how they birth. My purpose is to support and encourage positive birth and breastfeeding journeys by assisting women to utilize their strength and power from within. I will also step in and hold space or step away, I rub feet, backs and hips and I hold hearts. I get food and water to keep everyone going, I dim lights, hold your hand when you need to feel strong, I support your partner to support you and relieve them when they need a break. I use my knowledge to gently give the process a nudge through comfort measures and I keep the calm and the flow so that your birth wishes remain in place when you can not advocate for yourself during labor. I believe everyone deserves to be supported in their birth and breastfeeding journeys if they choose regardless of their race, religion, color, creed or sexual orientation. Every birth journey is beautiful and no two births are alike, all families are special and unique in their own way. Although I am professionally trained and have had different experiences with births, it is important to me that each family structure receives physical, emotional and informational support that is unique to them and their journey. There are so many details and things to think about and consider when you are expecting, I am with you providing a compassionate, nonjudgmental and lighthearted presence all the way and I will ensure you are always supported and informed. As I support women and families through such an amazing journey, I am supported by three amazing independent Doulas that provide backup support for me when I am supporting a birth. Their support and camaraderie keeps me knowledgeable, confident and prepared for each birth. I believe great Doulas are not great because of their techniques, they are great because of their passion.
