Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of having a birth doula?


Studies have shown that having a birth doula positively improves birth outcomes. Data shows: 31% decrease in the use of Pitocin 39% decrease in the risk of Cesarean Section 15% increase in the likelihood of a spontaneous birth 10% decrease in the use of narcotic pain relief 38% decrease in the risk for a baby having a low 5-minute APGAR score 14% decrease in the risk of newborns being admitted to a special care nursery 31% decrease in the risk of the birthing person being dissatisfied with the overall birth experience




What is the difference between a midwife and a doula?


A midwife is a health care provider, while a doula is more like a childbirth coach.




Why do I need a doula when I have a partner?


Whether it's a romantic partner, spouse, or family member, your partner's experience and role matters in your birth. My job is not to replace your partner, but rather join them in supporting you. I help facilitate a stronger bond and connection between you and your partner. I aim to help the partner feel more confident, and in turn, help you feel more confident!




What kinds of techniques do doulas provide to reduce stress and anxiety during labor?


Doulas offer a wide array of techniques or comfort measures. I like to use counter pressure, light touch massage, body massage, affirmations and more! Contact me for more information on the specifics of what I offer and how I differ from other doulas.




Are doulas only for unmedicated or "natural" births or at home?


No. I support all births - unmedicated, medicated, cesarean and beyond. I attend births at hospitals, birthing centers, and at home. Every birth is unique and requires different areas of support.




What if I plan to get an epidural?


As your birth doula, I help you make informed decisions during your birth experience and this includes the choice to have an epidural. Should you decide to get an epidural, I will help before, during, and after. After the epidural is placed, I will support you with changing positions throughout your labor, suggesting different pushing techniques, and more. I will continue to be by your side, helping to create your ideal setting and the most peaceful experience as possible in your birthing space.
