Our desire as Doulas is to help empower the mother/family to have their ideal birth experience. Every birth can be filled with joy. Studies show that the use of doulas has been proven to decrease the length of labor, the need for epidurals and/or C-Sections while increasing the mother’s satisfaction and mother/baby outcomes. Believing in the power of a woman’s body, our goal is to guide the natural birth process by providing comfort and support. We also can assist in writing a birth plan in advance, and aid with breast-feeding after, if needed. Our job is not to make decisions for you, but to educate and support you to make the choices you want. Our involvement in each birth experience will vary – some call for more meetings before birth, others after. You can hire a doula at any point in your pregnancy. Our purpose is to make the entire experience as comfortable as possible for you. We offer birth doula services in Orlando and nearby communities.
“I am passionate about working with a mother (and family) during one of the most miraculous events of their life. I believe that bringing a child into this world is a natural, beautiful moment. I also believe that parents should be well-informed about their choices during pregnancy, labor and birth. My goal is to do all that I can to partner with the parents in bringing forth their ideal birth experience.
I have birthed 4 children of my own and have different birth experiences with each one. I have also have attended births at hospitals, birthing centers and home births.
I am a certified doula with DONA international. I have completed the Lamaze CBE training. I do offer in-home Childbirth Education classes at this time (usually 2 classes each lasting 2-3 hours each). Please contact me for more info. I am currently in school to become a Licensed Midwife but I am still taking doula clients until I graduate in August of 2018. I have been a doula for 12 years and certified for 5 years. I am CPR and NRP certified.”
“I believe it is an honor to assist families during the intimate process and celebration of bringing a new life into the world. I am happy to use my knowledge, skills, and experience in helping you make the best decision you see fit as you grow your family.
