Now Serving clients in Arkansas!
Agape (ag'-a-pe) is a Greek word that means God's Unconditional Love. I feel this express exactly how I approach and serve every client and their family. Choosing a doula is one of the most important decisions you can make when preparing for the birth of your child. My goal as your certified birth doula is to provide you with emotional support, physical comfort measures and assist you and your partner in getting the informational support needed in order to make the best decisions possible. Studies have suggested that obstetrical outcomes may improve when a women in labor receives consistent, continuous reassurance, comfort, encouragement, and respect. In addition to the improved obstetrical outcomes, studies have also shown that the level of support given to a mother during labor, birth and in the immediate post partum period following the birth, can strengthen or weaken her emotional ties with her child. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about your upcoming birth and discuss how I may help you in making this a positive birth experience. Please feel free to call or email.
I strive to provide Doula service for parents who want to achieve THEIR ideal birth. This means you can have prenatal, postpartum and continuous labor support for you both as you bring your new baby into the world. You can have the birth you want, whether that is with low interventions at home or in a hospital, or a medicated birth. It's your choice, and a doula is a certified professional who can help you get there, through emotional, informational and physical support.
Doulas are also trained to help mom and baby get off to the best start with breastfeeding instruction and support.
