A Doula : "[one] who accompanies a woman in labor, mothers the mother."
Doulas are hired in addition to, not instead of, a primary care practitioner (midwife, physician, certified nurse midwife, etc.). Doulas provide emotional support, information, advocacy, pain management and comfort measures as well as facilitating the participation of the father or partner.

I am an affiliated instructor with The Bradley Method and labor doula through DONA. It is my goal to empower couples with the knowledge they need to have the kind of birth THEY choose. As a Bradley instructor and labor Doula, I teach couples how to recognize what is considered "normal" during labor. Couples who take my classes can expect to walk away with confidence knowing they have the information needed to make their own decisions during pregnancy, labor and birth of their baby. I have a great ability to dismantle the fear that naturally comes with giving birth, replacing it with excitement, joy and confidence.
