Labor & Postpartum
Things have changed, and so will I!
COVID-19 has put a damper on in-person labor and postpartum support! So I'm here to tell you that you still have options! As a doula, I'm here to provide a support system for pregnant, birthing, and postpartum families!
I aim to provide physical comfort, emotional balance, and comprehensive knowledge to help you make the most informed decisions for YOUR birth, YOUR needs, and YOUR values and priorities in mind.
Despite the current challenging times where not much physical comfort can be given, I still have the desire and willingness to offer the remaining pillars of doula support ---> emotional and informational!
With my virtual services, I'll 100% still be there for you!
