frequently asked questions

As your doula I have a non-medical support person role. I focus on caring for you emotionally and physically, and help you to feel informed and empowered.

A midwife is a medical professional, meaning that the primary focus of their care is on the health and safety of you and your baby. At a birth a midwives top priorities include: ensuring that you and baby's vital signs are stable, assessing you and your baby, completing cervical exams when needed, administering medication if necessary, and catching the baby you are birthing.

Both doulas and midwives work with you prenatally, support you throughout the birth and follow up with you postpartum.

My goal is to make sure everyone has a good experience. Every partnership is unique, and during our prenatals together we'll figure out the best way to work together.

The earlier the better. I love to start working with my mamas at least by the second trimester. That gives us ample to to work on nourishing mama and baby.

Most hospitals are now accepting two support people, but on the off chance a hospital changes protocol we will switch to virtual support.

During our prenatals we'll prepare for that possible outcome.

Definitely! I support all types of birth. While you may not need much physical support during your labor, there are emotional and informational ways I can support you and your growing family.

For sure! A 25% deposit is required to book my services and hold your due date in my calendar.

The remaining balance is split between monthly payments, with payment in full required before your due date.

Yes! All new clients are welcome.
