Birth Doula:
*Madriella Certified
*DONA International Pre-Certified

Provides evidence based information & in-person support to promote the optimal birth experience for birth mom, partner & baby. In modern American birth culture, even the best meaning Doctors & Midwives are often unable to invest the kind of one-on-one prenatal attention it takes to fully equip birth mamas & their partners for the life changing experience of childbirth and postpartum. I believe that a truly AMAZING birth experience must be approached from a much wider & wholistic perspective than just labor and delivery. As a Birth Doula, I developed a unique “4-Session Doula Plan” out of all my research, training, and experiences to help my clients thoroughly prepare for their birth & postpartum. I specialize in assisting birth mamas & partners seeking euphoric, fear-free, pain-free natural childbirth (yes… REALLY!). However, I approach ALL birth from an entirely nonjudgmental stance. I don’t care if you choose natural, epidural, hospital, home, c-section, or out in a meadow of daisies. All that matters to me as a birth doula is that you are properly educated on all your options, that you are assisted in clearing any fears surrounding birth, that you & your partner feel thoroughly empowered for your chosen birth experience, and that all your desires are respected and protected while you are in your most vulnerable state during the birth itself.

How To Be Your Own Doula-

Can’t afford a doula but want the empowerment of birth coaching!? Want to ROCK your birth within the intimacy of just you and your partner?! Here’s my full “4-Session Doula Plan” that I guide my Doula clients through, laid out step by step with talking points, resource links, coping tools & techniques, and homework to educate & empower! I believe this information should be FREE for everyone! You got this mama!

Prenatal Birth Coaching – Birth Doula Package

This option is for those who would like access to private in-person training through my “4-Session Doula Plan,” but who would ultimately would prefer the actual birth experience to stay between just them and their birth partner. Each session is two-hours in length and I can come to you for daytime or evening sessions depending on what works best for your schedule. One invaluable perk of my in-person training is the hands-on demonstration through each of the coping tools & techniques as well as access to my personal collection of tools (sanitized & prepped) & therapeutic grade essential oils for use in your birth. This rental alone is over a $400 value. I also offer every pregnant mama (because you deserve it!) a “Congrats Mama Survival Basket” FREE upon every Interview! The basket includes a Warren’s Post Bone Broth (made locally by another amazing mama friend and her husband!), Ginger Chews to help with nausea, a Clary Sage essential oil roller to promote balanced pregnancy hormones, and dark chocolate for the indulgence and the antioxidants 🙌🏼

Includes initial interview w/ “Congrats Mama Survival Basket”
