Feel Supported, Trust In Your Body

As a birthing mother you are...

INTUITIVE

Your intuition has been the driving force through your pregnancy and will be your true guide during birth. As your doula, I value your intuition over anything else. If there was just one tool needed at any birth, it would be the mother’s intuition, and the witness’s ability to trust it. Your intuition will know better than anyone what you need to safely birth your baby into the world.

CONNECTED

Your connection with your baby, your partner, and yourself is highly valued. You are deeply connected to the earth and are grounded. You have a deep understanding of how you want your birth experience to be, and you deserve it to be so. As your doula, I strive to form a deep connection with you, so that I understand how to best support you in labor and birth.

MAGICAL

You are magical. There is mystical intelligence inside of every one of yours and your baby’s cells. There is so much magic to reflect on in both pregnancy and birth. Your body knows how to conceive, nourish, and grow, your baby. Then when it’s time, your magical body knows how to bring them earthside. As your doula, I value the sacred and magical wisdom of your body.

"A woman in birth is at once her most powerful, and most vulnerable. But any woman who has birthed unhindered understands that we are stronger than we know."

What is a birth doula?

Doulas are women who provide emotional and physical support for women in labor and birth. Doulas help educate mothers and partners about the various types of monitoring, testing, and procedures a regulated care provider may request to perform. They then help the mother make educated and informed decisions on how they want their birth experience to be. A doula is not a medical professional and does not make decisions for the mother in labor, birth or the immediate postpartum.

Hear What Mothers Say

You might have some questions about birth doulas...

Many doulas do attend hospital births. At this time, I do not attend women in hospital births as the risk of unnecessary intervention is too high. 

In the Prenatal Tea Dates, we have the opportunity to talk about anything you desire, regardless of its relation to pregnancy or birth. The intention behind Prenatal Tea Dates is to build connection, trust, and compassion with one another, so that when it comes time for birth, I already know how to best support you.

After I serve some herbal tea, we have the opportunity to discuss various topics such as: creating your ideal birth vision, unpacking any fears or concerns related to birth, educating you on various procedures your midwife may want to perform, preparing for the postpartum, and more!
I value the importance of meeting in-person, in order to build a compassionate and trusting connection. These Tea Dates may take place in your home, in a coffee shop, at the park, in the library… wherever you feel comfortable! I attend births within 100 miles of Rollinsville, CO. If you are farther than 50miles away, I ask that we please meet somewhere in the middle for our meet-ups.
Birth doulas provide emotional and physical support for women in labor and birth. This might look like: helping you change labor positions, providing pain relief hip squeezes, reassuring your strength, offering breathing techniques, making sure the room is warm, making sure you are hydrated and fed, and much more!
Each birth doula is different. As a doula, I attend births for no extra fee within 100 miles of my location. Please contact me if this would best suit you.
