After answering some questions to help us narrow down what type of services you are looking for. We make our best efforts to match people with a doula that fits their unique needs and identities.
What is a doula?
As doulas we provide compassionate and non judgemental support. We provide physical, emotional, and educational support for any and all pregnancy outcomes from abortion, loss, pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. All of the members of our collective come with their own unique ancestral memory, skills, services, and knowledge. They also have the foundational information from our training and community of resources and referrals that our expanding collective brings.
Some potential benefits of having a birth doula
- Reduced medical intervention
- Shorter labor lengths
- Lower necessity for pain medications- -Additional physical and emotional support
