LIFE by design! Birth Doula Service

leaf_2The meaning of the Greek word Doula is a woman caregiver or a woman who serves.  A Birth Doula describes a labor companion who provides a woman continuous emotional support, physical comfort and assistance in obtaining information before, during and just after childbirth.

As a LIFE by design! Birth Doula,  I support expectant mother’s, father’s and their families with:

  • Recognizing the birth of a child is a precious gift from God and an important and memorable experience for the mother.
  • Understanding the needs of a woman in labor.
  • Helping the mother, father and/or family in preparing for and implementing their plans for the birth of their child.
  • Being right beside a laboring woman throughout the entire labor.
  • Coaching the laboring woman by providing emotional support, physical comfort measures and assistance in helping her receive the information she needs to make a decision.
  • Providing the role of one who nurtures the woman through the whole birthing experience.

The services provided by LIFE by design Birth Doula include:

  • A complimentary initial Doula Consultation

  • 24/7 email, text and phone support for the duration of our relationship
