Support, Continuous Care, Comfort & Empowerment
"Alyssa was amazing and I'm so thankful that we had her by our sides as our Doula! She helped my husband be able to effectively help me during labor and made it an anxiety free time! I had a wonderful labor experience, unlike last time without a Doula. It was such a drastic difference! I HIGHLY recommend her. She is so sweet, down to earth, and is incredibly knowledgeable!!" ~ Erin L
Why Hire A Doula?
Women who had continuous labor support often in the form of a doula experienced a 31% decrease in the use of Pitocin, 28% decrease in cesarean birth, 12% increase in spontaneous vaginal delivery, 9% decrease in pain medications administered and 14% decrease in the risk of newborns needing time in the special care nursery according to Hodnett et al in a 2012 Cochrane review of Continuous Support During Labor.
In Greek the word DOULA literally means "servant". As doulas we provide, physical, emotional and educational support to women during her prenatal, birth and postpartum time.
