DOULA CARE

BIRTH DOULA

I provide a calming presence, with physical, emotional, and informational support, so that mothers and partners, as well as the baby, have a gentle, respectful, empowering birth experience. I apply the study, teaching, and practice of yoga and ancient science of Ayurveda to my services. Tools of breathing, essential oils, acupressure, positioning, mantra, meditation, massage, and sound all play a role in support. I specialize in unmedicated births, protective measures for the baby's psychological well-being after birth, and co-creating an atmosphere where the mother feels free and strong, the parents are heard and respected, and the sacred transition from womb to room is revered.
