Pregnancy and the delivery of a child are one of the most complex processes that your body will ever go through.

Birth partners are important in helping labor go smoothly as they can provide both emotional and physical support.   While everyone that probably comes to your house or meets up with you from the time they find out Mama is pregnant until months after the new baby arrives only wants to know how Mama and baby are doing - your role is important. 

I've been asked by many families if you only have a doula for the first birth. The answer is No. There are so many reasons you can have a birth doula regardless of which pregnancy this might be for you.

Ciera was a warrior through her pregnancy and chidbirth and is such an amazing mom to her beautiful little girl.  If you have a moment, please watch Ciera's real and raw video about pregnancy and childbirth and all that comes with it - ups, downs and everything in between.

Tamara was a wonderful doula! We had the pleasure of having her support us throughout the pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postpartum. During the pregnancy, she helped us build our birthing plan, research treatments for my diagnosis of gestational diabetes, and prepare and transition into a family of 5.

Birth Doula. Birth Companion. Birth Coach.  All are various descriptions that are commonly used to describe a doula.   The word doula is a Greek word meaning “woman's servant.” Women have been serving others in childbirth for centuries and have proven that support from women has a positive impact on labor.  Find out how doula can help you achieve a natural childbirth.

A few months ago, I was given the opportunity to attending a Spinning Babies Workshop.   The class took place over a weekend and was filled with moms to be, doulas, midwives and chiropractors.  All of there to learn morea bout how to help Mama and baby achieve the gentlest, most natural birth possible.

Last year, I spent the weekend in northern Ohio at a training workshop.  The training was not something that I wanted to do, as I knew it would be highly emotional.   But I knew it was something that I HAD to do.   Birth is not routine, every birth is different and not all births have the outcome that any one wants.    The seminar was a training on how to be a Bereavement Doula.   A doula for families dealing with the loss, whether unexpected or planned, or their baby.
