A Doula is a trained professional and seasoned mother that provides educational, emotional and physical support during pregnancy, labor/delivery and early infancy. She offers unbiased and evidence based information to the family so they can make educated choices regarding their birth experience.
Because birth is unpredictable, a Doula is able to help GUIDE the couple's journey by providing continuous emotional and physical support. A Doula works to keep the room calm and the partner connected. Position changes, relaxation/visualization, massage and words of support can aid in labor progression and coping with the intense challenges of labor and delivery. A Doula is there to make sure the needs of the mom and the partner are being met.
Studies have shown a significant decrease in episiotomies, pitocin, IV pain medication, epidurals, instrument delivery and C-Sections when a Doula is present. There is also an increase in spontaneous vaginal births and personal satisfaction after the birth. As a Doula, I am dedicated to helping families have an amazing birth experience.
Serving Arizona areas of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, Glendale, Surprise, Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Mesa and surrounding cities.
