"Every birther needs to meet the virago within."
Equipping birthers (and partners, too) toward a confident pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience by means of evidence-based & nurturing physical, emotional, and educational support in the greater Seattle, Washington region.
No matter where you birth or how you birth, I will be a steady support from beginning to beyond.
It is a privilege beyond words to be entrusted in such an intimate season. I am forever marked by my clients and their story.
What is a doula?
A doula is a person trained to provide non-medical support during the childbearing year. This support comes in the forms of physical, emotional, and educational in pursuit of a satisfactory birthing story.
Why have a doula?
According to multiple evidence-based sources, having a doula increases birth satisfaction and breastfeeding, decreases the use of medical interventions, cesareans, postpartum depression, and could even shorten labor.
"Where do I begin!? I am so grateful for everything you did for us as our doula, and as a friend. Your support, your positivity, and your educating us along the whole way was so appreciated. I went into the pregnancy as a skeptic, and fearful of what could happen during labor and delivery. Having you there helped keep my fear at ease. Maybe I've forgotten things already, but I don't even remember being afraid, thanks largely to you and your support. I will forever be grateful to having you as our doula."
