Why use a doula rather than family members or friends?

A doula is professionally trained and certified to provide support to birthing women and their partners. The understanding of medical lingo in itself is of big help, as doulas can translate what the medical professionals are telling you. This allows doulas to give you objective information at the moment.

What if you have a family member or a friend who is a medical professional? First of all, that is great! They can be another source of support for you. The birth process can be intense, and even medical professionals can have their judgment clouded when a loved one is in pain.

I am passionate about changing the view of birth in America one mother at a time. BIRTH DOESN'T HAPPEN TO YOU, IT HAPPENS THROUGH YOU. I aim to EDUCATE, EMPOWER and ELEVATE as you prepare for the birth of your dreams. You will learn about how your body and baby work together to bring your baby into your arms. I will guide you to become empowered to use your voice to make informed choices about your body and baby. I will lift you up, encourage you and be a constant presence during this transformational experience in your life.
