I am a trained non-clinical professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother or birthing person before, during and shortly after childbirth to help achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible. As a Milk + Honey doula I attend your delivery whether at home, birthing center or virtually in the hospital.

 

I am trained to assist families with birthing options as advocates of their client's wishes and may assist in communicating with medical staff to obtain information for the client to make informed decisions regarding medical procedures. 

 

Evidence has shown that pregnant persons who have a doula are:

 

 

less likely to need Pitocin.

less likely to have a cesarean birth.

less likely to use any pain medication.

more likely to rate their childbirth experience positively

babies have a lower AGPAR score 

Pregnancy is very emotional and as your doula my goal is to

 

 

 

support, educate, advocate, coach, and nurture moms to-be and birthing persons throughout the pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and postpartum journey

give emotional support for childbirth. I help to normalize and educate you on feelings and bodily sensations that happen during pregnancy, which can feel very scary and unnerving for a first-time mother. Help unpack previous birth trauma that may cause angst or concerns. 

 

provide physical touch for comfort measures such as massage and pressure points, particularly in labor, physical-touch is incredibly beneficial in helping the mother-to-be maintain a sense of comfort and control.

 

coach your partner on how to support you and your environment before birth, I teach the anatomy of labor and birth, comfort techniques, pressure points, and the use of aromatherapy. 

 

provide evidence based education on breastfeeding and obtaining a pain free first latch and ensuring breastfeeding or pumping gets off to a great start after childbirth. 

As a postpartum doula as well, I offer healing and holistic remedies, but also a non-judgemental ear. I visit families when they are comfortable after birth for postpartum care to talk about your birth, newborn care, postpartum support, baby wearing techniques and breastfeeding care.
