A fear free, peace filled birth is possible. Let's make it happen!

What's a doula, anyway?

​Studies have shown that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.

Meet Nellie

Maybe you're here because you're super excited and prepared and can't wait to give birth, or maybe you're scared out of your mind wondering "how in the world will I do this?"

 

That was me.

 

Birth and pregnancy were my biggest fear in life. 

 

My friendship with a midwife, along with my own pregnancy and birth journey, and God stopping me in my tracks while walking into my kitchen eventually led me down the road of discovering the beauty that lies on the other side of surrendering fear.

 

Birth is so much more empowering then anyone has ever told you, sis. 

 

Please, allow me to reintroduce it to you.

As a Doula, I : 

  • Recognize birth as a key experience a mother will remember all her life.

  • Understand the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor. Specifically the importance of releasing fear. 

  • Assist the mother in preparing for and carrying out her plans for birth.

  • Stay with the mother throughout the labor providing emotional support, physical comfort measures as well as helping the parents get the information needed to make informed decisions.

  • Facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers.

  • Perceive my role as nurturing and protecting the woman’s memory of the birth experience.

  • Allow the mothers partner to participate at their comfort level.

  • Provide support with breastfeeding and postpartum care.
