COVID 2021:

frequently asked questions

Q: When should I hire a doula?

A: That totally depends on you and your needs! Many people hire me in the first couple of months of their pregnancy, and when I come in early I’m able to help them carefully examine and choose their perfect location for birth, their healthcare providers, as well as map out childbirth education and pediatric care.

I also often am hired around 25-30 weeks/ join in later in pregnancy, and at that point our time is very much centered on late pregnancy care, birth and postpartum. I’ve also been hired WHILE a client is in labor! When you are ready, it’s the right time.

Q: I already have an OB/midwfe, why do I need a doula?

A: Great question! Your health care provider is there to keep you and your baby safe, they are not there to look after/prioritize your and your partner's mental and emotional health and wellbeing.

That’s where I come in! I’ll teach you how to identify and center your emotional needs during your pregnancy, labor and postpartum, as well as helping you figure out how to balance the intricacies of growing a new person while still tending to your full self. I can help you identify potential triggers and the very best ways to help you feel autonomous during this process.

If you have a partner, I will teach them how to be the very best support for you during this entire process. They will learn how to use touch, massage, advocacy and connection to keep you feeling safe and loved.

Q: I want an epidural or want/need a c section, so I shouldn’t need a doula?

A: Not true! I have helped so many pregnant people plan for absolutely beautiful epidural and c section births. Sometimes they are necessary and exactly what you want or need. There are so many ways to help you prepare and plan YOUR birth so that it centers your emotional well-being, as well as prioritizing evidence based care.

Some of the most beautiful births I have ever seen have been well planned out epidural assisted birth and gentle c sections.
