Why use a birth doula?
It can help with ...
Reduced Pain in Labor
Doulas provide continuous support that has been shown to reduce the need for pain medications during labor
Positive Childbirth Experience
Having continuous support from a doula during labor and birth helps women feel confident in their ability to give birth, and increases satisfaction with the overall birth experience.
"Jessica and I worked with Ann on the birth of our son this weekend. She is an outstanding doula, knowledgeable, tactful, adaptable, caring, and professional. Highly recommended."
