PRENATAL - BIRTH - POSTPARTUM
Doulas are commonly just associated with labor and delivery. Over the course of the care of over 200 families, I have realized quickly the importance of informational, physical and emotional support for expectant and laboring families. This multifaceted support plays a vital role in a family's pregnancy, birth and postpartum story. My practice philosophy puts just as much focus on the prenatal and postpartum period as labor and birth. There is a lot of information out there, and sometimes its overwhelming. I join with families, talk about what is normal and abnormal of pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. We talk about your options, tools and resources for each stage and parents are empowered to make informed decisions during exciting transition in life.
My experience of birth is diverse. I have had the honor of attending births at most of our area hospitals, in homes with many of our lovely midwives and at our area's free standing birth centers. This diversity has given me a great appreciation for a high quality model of care and unique understanding of the variations of birth. Each pregnancy, birth and postpartum period I have supported has been an opportunity to learn more about the variables of the childbearing year and how the tools and skills doctors, midwives, nurses and doulas can come together in their own perfect way.
I would love the opportunity to support you and you family in this chapter of life.
