Comfort, education, and emotional support are the cornerstones of doula service.

This is your birth, your baby, and you expect excellent support!

What does excellent support mean to you?

Does it mean...

-I can text or call my doula whenever I need to - for instance, to find out if it's safe to eat the tiramisu I just ordered because there's no time to google it.

-having my doula research and present the breast pump options that best meet my criteria because I plan to continue breastfeeding when I go back to work.

-I can call my doula after a morning spent shopping for the nursery because I'm SO EXCITED and I HAVE to tell somebody about it right now!!!!!!!

-my doula is with me for my planned cesarean without voicing an opinion, unlike my mother-in-law who won't stop judging me. 

-I need help deciding which hospital to use for my birth. I've discovered as much as I can online and by calling the different providers, I need someone who knows the ins and outs and can help me fine-tune my research.

-I don't need much until I go into labor, and then I need my doula to come right away....not to do anything for me, I just need her presence.

-I'm totally good, but my partner needs help.  I need my doula to support and educate him or her through the pregnancy and birth process so they can be prepared and ready to support me when I need it.  I also need to know someone else will make sure my partner eats and sleeps some while I'm in labor.

-I need help when I get home with my new baby. I don't even know yet what I need, but I know you'll help me figure it out.

If you are interested in meeting with me to discuss how I could best serve your needs during your pregnancy, birth and postpartum, please call: 413-588-7483 or email:
