As a companion, supporter, friend, and educator, your birth doula is there to provide education, and physical and emotional assistance, throughout all stages of your pregnancy and into the postpartum period, to ensure a healthy, positive experience for you and your growing family.
What sets my Doula Services Apart?
With over 20 years’ experience as a professional labor support partner (also known as a doula), I have learned that the relationship between you and your doula is one that is built on shared trust, confidence, and mutual respect. The stronger the connection between you and your doula, the better the experience will be for everyone involved.
That is why I offer monthly visits--to better forge that connection and build that important relationship. No matter how far along you are in your pregnancy, I make it a priority to meet regularly in order to provide the support and care that you need. Even if hired at the last minute (a month or less before the due date), I will provide a minimum of three visits so we can get to know each other.
*Currently, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the only hospital allowing in-person doula support is Natividad Medical Center. Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula and Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital are not allowing in-person doula support. Virtual doula services are another option if you choose to deliver in a hospital that does not allow additional support people.*
