I became a doula in 2003 after enduring two very different, yet very disappointing labor experiences. Each for their own set of reasons.
My experience as a doula extends to the following areas:
- IUI, IVF and other fertility treatment methods
- Pregnancy Loss
- High Risk Pregnancies
- Genetic Abnormalities
- Emergency c-sections
- Unmedicated, natural births
- Postpartum Depression
- Extended Breastfeeding
- and probably a bunch of other stuff I'm not thinking about right now
I'd be happy to help you in any way I can. Women need to go back to being in control of their own pregnancies, and doulas are a step in that direction.
There are few things more amazing than the euphoria of a mother who has just birthed her baby, few things more magical than seeing a new person for the first time, few moments more full of nervous anticipation than those that occur right after birth.
