Birth Doula Care
The birth of your baby is an intimate and powerful event. Your doula, Luci or Kathy, will work with your individual needs to provide personalized, compassionate care, helping you achieve a confident and satisfying birth. We take a holistic, evidence-based approach to pregnancy and labor support. This means that we treat each unique individual as a whole - integrating techniques to calm and strengthen both mind and body in preparation for and during labor. We provide respectful, unbiased support, whether you choose a medicated or unmedicated birth, in a hospital, home, or birthing center.
Here is what you can expect from your birth doula:
Considering Hypnosis for Childbirth?
As a Hypnobabies (TM) Hypno-doula, Kathy doula has received specialized training to support clients choosing to use self-hypnosis for a more comfortable birthing experience. The Hypnobabies program teaches highly effective "eyes-open childbirth hypnosis” techniques to enable birthing women to remain comfortably in hypnosis while also maintaining full mobility to walk, talk, change positions, or rest, as they choose.
"My son had an unmedicated birth, and I felt incredibly empowered during and after the process... "
"She brought such a peacefulness to me and my husband and helped me return to my breathing and focus again and again."
Did you know that scientific studies show that doula care can improve outcomes for both mother and baby?
