Supporting Women through
Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum
Having doula support has been proven to decrease the amount of unnecessary medical interventions and increase the likelihood of positive birth outcomes. A 2017 Cochrane review shows that doula support can decrease the risk of cesarean by 39%, and decrease the risk of a low 5-minute APGAR score by 38%. Other statistics include shorter labors, decreased need for pain medication, and a decreased risk of being unhappy with your birth experience.
As a doula, I work as a birth partner. I assist in pain management and find ways to encourage progressive labor. I help you to make educated decisions about your birth preferences. I help you to effectively advocate for the birth you desire. I am your unwavering support person.
