Birth Doula & Reproductive Health Activist

What is a doula?

A doula is a support person who offers emotional, physical, and educational support during the span of pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period. Although doulas are not medical professionals, we are trained to support and empower people through this transformative time by providing continuous emotional support, countless resources and physical pain management during labor. Doulas also serve to protect you in the spiritual space and advocate for you by providing the needed information that allows you to make informed decisions about your birth and better help you transition into your new role in the postpartum period.

Why get a doula, you ask?

Doulas have been proven to:

  • decrease the length of labor by 25%

  • decrease the cesarean rate by 50%

  • decrease the use of oxytocin by 40%

  • decrease the requests for epidural by 60%

  • aids in decreasing the fear & anxiety surrounding the birthing experience
