As your doula I will draw on professional training and knowledge to provide emotional support, physical comfort and communication ensuring that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor. Being a doula I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort.
