Wouldn't it be wonderful to have someone that you could have on hand that would provide continous support, just when you needed it?
A DOULA is that person! A doula is a woman experienced in childbirth who provides information, emotional support and physical comfort to a mother before, during and just after childbirth. Not only do mothers need support; partners, moms, sisters, and friends may all be called on to help you on your journey and may need support too!
My focus, as your doula, is to encourage and EMPOWER you with resources that help you achieve a more natural centered birth. Your body is perfect and you can do this! As your doula, I support you and your choice to birth at home, birth center or in the hospital, with or without pain relief.
All births are special and they are all different!
There are a lot of things that happen after the baby comes home, as well. A postpartum doula can help you with the transition of becoming a family(or adding to one) and provide an extra set of hands! I strongly encourage my clients to breastfeed and offer as much assistance as possible to ensure a good breastfeeding relationship.
My doula services are within a 40 mile radius, including, Ann Arbor, Belleville, Brighton, Canton, Chelsea, Dearborn, Dexter, Livonia, Milan, Monroe, Plymouth, Saline, Superior Twp, Wayne, Westland, Ypsilanti. If you are outside my service area, please contact me and let's talk!
