What does a Doula do?

Doulas provide irreplaceable informational, emotional, physical and spiritual support to a woman during her pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum. Birth Doulas can facilitate communication with the staff to ensure the birthing woman has adequate information she needs to make informed choices regarding her labor and baby’s birth. Doulas offer invaluable reassurance, perspective, suggestions for labor progress, help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques that invite comfort and empowerment in the birth experience. Postpartum Doulas are committed to supporting a woman in her transition into motherhood, helping in her home, with her children, with breastfeeding, nutrition, processing the birth experience, and other critical support.

I love watching women discover their feminine power. Never is that made more manifest than during childbirth. Each of my four children were born at home in a birthing-tub with the assistance of a skilled midwife. Though I “made it through” the birth of my first child, it was an overwhelming and somewhat traumatic experience with a lengthy recovery, working through over 10 months of postpartum depression. With each succeeding birth I sought out and discovered new techniques that transformed my feelings of trauma and overwhelm into feelings of peace and power. We need each other, as women, and too often we try to muscle through major life transitions all on our own. Doulas help us return to "the village" way of life, where we rally around each other and ensure a woman's needs are being met. 

 

I specialize in helping women achieve empowering, unmedicated birth in ANY setting, yet support all women regardless of their birth preferences. I believe in the power of education, consent to touch, and making informed choices. My postpartum services are tailored to supporting women's spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional health. I mentor and guide women in their healing, motherhood transition, and feminine awakening.

Client Testimonials

I am so grateful I invited Stephanie to be my doula. This was my third child, and I did not have a doula with my first two children. I was planning on going unmedicated, so it gave me great peace of mind to know someone would be there to support me through the pain. Stephanie was so positive and encouraging from the first conversation. She listened to my needs and saw them through 100%. She advocated for me at the hospital as well as checked on me later at home, so I knew she truly cared. I had a beautiful experience, and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
