Your Beautiful Birth Awaits
Congratulations on your pregnancy! As your doula, I support you and your partner physically and emotionally before, during, and after labor. I strongly believe in relational support, meaning getting to know you and your goals for your upcoming journey. My goal is to help you have an amazing birth while also helping your partner. I don't take the place of your partner as your coach, rather, I am there as an educated support person who will enhance your birth by allowing your partner to experience your birth with you versus needing to recall all the lessons learned during childbirth classes. I have an intimate knowledge of childbirth while your partner has an intimate knowledge of you. Together, we make a perfect team to help you have a happier birth.
During your pregnancy, you can reach out to me to let me know how you're doing and how your appointments go. If you have any questions, let me know and I will help you find the information and discuss pros and cons to help you make your own decisions.
During active labor, I will assist you with positioning, counter-pressure, comforting touch, and breathing, as needed. I will get you water, ice, food (as allowed), hot packs, cold packs, whatever you need so your partner can stay right with you. Nurses have a lot of responsibilities and change shifts so they can't stay in the room with you the whole time whereas I will be there offering continuous support throughout your labor, even making it possible for your partner to take breaks if needed. I will be your voice of reassurance that you're doing great and your body can do this. I will be there to focus on you. I will help you feel like the goddess you are. Through my yoga practice, I have learned the importance of relaxation and can help you practice relaxation techniques before and during labor to help manage any pain.
I provide my doula services to expecting moms in the triangle area between DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis, including Bowie, Laurel, Odenton, Severn, Crofton, and Gambrills. If you're outside of this area, give me a call and we can see if we can make it work.
