In my opinion, a Doula is an essential member of any birth care team. My role is to provide physical, emotional and informational support for you, your partner, and family during your birth. I’m specially trained in numerous comfort measures such as acupressure, massage, rebozo, coached breathing, aromatherapy, and more. I’m able to offer both a hands-on comforting touch as well as suggestions for things you can do on your own that might ease your pain and discomfort. I meet with clients prenatally to discuss their concerns and preferences in advance of labor, often discussing the wide variety of options available for comfort during labor. I will help you identify the techniques you are most apt to appreciate during labor and thus can be trusted to anticipate the best ways to support you when the big day arrives.
