We are a collective of professionally trained doulas, offering the support and empowerment to women and their partners during labor and child birth. We make connections with our clients early on, and play an active role in your birth experience when your labor day comes. We support you physically, psychologically and emotionally, from your first contraction, until you're holding your baby in your arms. We help lower the risk of complication by providing consistent support skills for the laboring woman and her partner. Through practices such as labor massage, breathing technique, visualization and optimal labor positioning, we help coach you through labor.
We believe that birth is a natural process. Doulas provide consistent support for the laboring woman and her partner. We know that women supported by a trained Doula is the best birth model because calm, consistent support lowers anxiety levels and reduces stress not only for the mother and baby, but for her partner as well. When we are gathered together, our brains release more oxytocin - the wonderful hormone which reduces stress and increases feelings of connection - which is needed for labor to progress. Doulas also support the birth partners. We believe that the father, partner or support person is an important part of labor, and work to assure that they have the physical, mental and emotional support they need throughout the birth process.
It is our role to assist the woman emotionally, physically, and intellectually as she goes through her journey of labor, birth and into the postpartum period.
