Doula n. Derived from the Greek word, meaning “to serve.” A woman who is trained to assist another woman in childbirth and provides support after the baby is born.
Holistic Family Doulas offer complete birth doula packages that fully support you during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. As mothers and certified doulas, we hold a wealth of knowledge and experience. We have been trained in comfort techniques for labor that include acupressure, aromatherapy, position suggestions, reiki and other tools that make the labor smoother. Studies show women who are supported by doulas experience shorter labors, more natural deliveries, improved breastfeeding, bonding and overall greater satisfaction with childbirth.
Birth is a beautiful, instinctual, natural process. You have the power and internal resources to draw on during labor. Your partner holds a vital role as well and will be supported and given the tools and resources to best serve you and participate fully in this sacred experience.
Every birth is different and unfolds in its own way. Our goal is for you to come out of your birth experience feeling overjoyed and empowered. Regardless of the outcome, we want you and your family to feel that you were informed every step of the way and were able to make decisions that allowed for the best outcome for you and your family.
We believe fully in our role as a birth keeper. We are here to bear witness, hold space for your family, watch for patterns, share wisdom and provide tools when needed.
