As a Doula, I  Do Not:

Perform any clinical tasks

I am here to provide physical comfort, advocacy and emotional support. My role is nonintervention and non-medical. I do not perform any vaginal exams, blood pressure monitoring, fetal heart check, and others. Labor support doulas are here to provide only physical comfort, emotional support, and advocacy.

Make decisions for you 

I will not make any decisions for you. I will help get you the information needed to make a conscious and informed decision. I work for you the client not the hospital or birth center, I will be there to remind you of your wishes if there are any changes that affect the birth plan.

Speak to the staff on your behalf

I will be by your side to discuss any questions and your concerns and suggest options. Remember you are the captain to your birth team so you and your partner will be the ones  that speak to the clinical staff.

Infant Care 

My goal is to assist sleep deprived families, giving them the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful and exciting time with their growing family.

  • Transition baby to a regular sleeping and feeding schedule

  • Educate and support families with al feeding needs. 

  • Assist with bathing, feeding, diapering, bathing, infant laundry and sterilizing bottles
