Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Welcoming new life into the world is an incredible and beautiful experience. It is my goal to make sure that your birth is a time of respect and empowerment for you. You may be feeling excitement, confusion, exhaustion, worry, or joy. Are you worried that labor will be too intense? Too often we try to manage it all on our own, but I’ll let you in on a secret: none of us has to do it without help. My compassionate care will help you and your partner emotionally and physically as you welcome this baby into the world.
Studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40%, and requests for an epidural by 60%. (Source)
