A doula provides continuity of care throughout the entire birthing process. We will meet with you prenatally to help you plan for the birth you truly desire. We will come to your home at your request, accompany you to the hospital, and stay with you until after the birth of your precious baby. We will help you establish breastfeeding, ensure that your immediate postpartum goes smoothly, and follow up with a supportive postpartum home visit.
