Doula Services

Birth and Postpartum Support

 

Your journey through pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum can feel like trying to navigate the unknown. I will help you understand your choices to make the best decision for you and your family by providing emotional, physical, and informational support to you and your birth partner throughout your pregnancy, labor and birth. I can offer perspective and suggestions for labor progress, positioning, relaxation, comforting touch, and help nurture a sense of calm and safety. While I am not a medical practitioner and I do not speak on your behalf to medical staff, I can hold space for you to ask questions, self-advocate, discuss concerns privately, and make your own informed decisions regarding your birth journey. I trust that you know what you need; I’m here to support during your transition to parenthood.

My Journey to Birthwork

Navigating an unplanned pregnancy and birthing a child with limited support was stressful and overwhelming. To understand my experiences, I began reading all that I could about birth − from history to personal experiences and everything in between. Through reading, I began to feel strongly that support from doulas made all the difference in birth experiences and was lead to enroll in full-spectrum doula training at Ancient Song Doula Services help create positive birthing experiences for individuals within a reproductive justice framework.
