Labor is the ultimate journey within yourself to discover the mother you are. Like a labyrinth, you must travel a path to the center, and follow that same path back, discovering along the way the new phase of your life. As your doula, I walk that path with you, providing encouragement and support along the way.
We meet prenatally 3-4 times to discuss your previous experiences, your hopes for this birth, and your fears. I provide support in early labor via phone, joining you at home until you are ready to move to your birth location or joining you directly at your birth location. I provide continuous support during labor and stay until breastfeeding is established. We meet 2-3 times postpartum to ensure your adjustment is going well.
