Breathe, Relax, Surrender- Amy Kirbow

Why have a Doula?

A doulas job is to serve you, from the hips up. No matter the setting, Hospital, Birth Center, or Home Birth. We have you covered. We are here to make you feel supported powerful and confident in your body and the birth process. When a doula is present a mother has the opportunity to have her emotional, physical and spiritual needs met. Her desires and wants are heard and advocated for if needed. Through unconditional love, we stand strong for others who can then be strong themselves.

More About Me

Let's not forget partners! Your support person also has the opportunity to cash in on the doulas aid. We are here to get them whatever is needed for them to support mother at their optimal level. Yes, this includes food, water, and breaks and coaching if desired. Also giving them the opportunity to feel confident and comfortable in those actions needed to harbor the mother and her space.

Research shows that when the proper birth support is present interventions are minimal, tearing is non-existent or slight and trauma is to a lesser degree or null and void. That being said, birth is unpredictable. I am firm believer of not putting birth into a box of expectations. Desires, wishes and birth hopes are of upmost importance, but birth is as jiggly as Jello, and it can be impossible to pinpoint exactly how it may pan out. With doula support it is easier to adjust to any changes that may come to pass outside of what may be desired to happen. Doulas allow for easier transition and adaption to deviation of the birth plans. Doulas can aid in focusing the mother when the labor dance gets intense so that they can experience more of a labor and birth dance they desire. Thus, creating flow with mother's natural rhythms to manifest looseness, and one with the labor process. Opening the doors to focus allows for following with the bodies birth rushes and energy, allowing the body to flow through the birth process beautifully.
