About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The best thing about my job working as a doula is that I am able to go through a pregnancy with a family, seeing all the changes emotionally and physically (cute bellies!), and helping parents learn to make educated decisions for a wonderful birth. I also love to watch the fathers become so involved (when able) loving and caring for their wives in labor. So sweet!!

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
I help educate families about pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period with their newborn babies. This includes writing a birth plan with you. I will come to you and remain with your family through labor and delivery, and shortly after to ensure a safe, satisfying birth and bonding experience. After you have settled in with baby, I will make 1-2 home visits to ensure everything is going well, talk about the birth, and snuggle your baby :)
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advice in finding "your doula" is to be sure you feel comfortable with her. There needs to be a good connection so that the mama is free to do, say, and act as she needs to during the most vulnerable and beautiful experience in her life, as well as the father.
