I have lived in Redding CA since 2005. My husband and I have been married for 20 years and we have 5 beautiful children.
I believe a woman realizes how strong she truly is during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Then she realizes it even more when she commits to breastfeeding! I have given birth in midwiferies and one high risk birth at a hospital. I loved them all! I devoured all kinds of books during this time and now I am a trained doula! This is a true passion in my life and I love helping families and get so excited to see new life!
I offer my doula services to encourage, educate and support both the father, mother and child during this precious time of their lives.
During my commitment to you I will:
Visit your home and answer any questions of what is needed to prepare the space for the baby.
Help cook a few meals for after the birth.
Attend a prenatal doctor appointment.
Be there for the entire labor and birth process.
Help establish nursing.
Make 1-2 home visits after birth to see how everyone is doing.
During the labor I will comfort and support the mother and father with:
Changing position to ease pain
Help the family follow their birth plan
Educate you and explain options when changes are necessary
Please feel free to email or call me with any questions you may have. I would love to meet you!
