As your doula, I will be present to gently accompany, support and encourage you throughout your pregnancy, labor and immediately after the birth.
At times that may look like a comforting hand placed on your back or holding a drink of water to your mouth. I follow your lead in knowing when to jump in and when to just step back and allow personal space. This is holding space for my clients.
What works best for your body and your baby in your birth will be unique to you.
