I decided to write a book after the birth of my fourth child because honestly, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I had worked so hard towards my VBA3C. It seemed weird, even with four kids to not have something to work on and prepare, besides normal life. My heart was overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me and I knew I wanted to share more of not just my story, but I really believe this is all about Him.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a doula?

A doula is a support person that understands the physiology and the emotional needs of a woman in labor, assists her and her partner in developing their birth preferences, stays with the woman during labor, works with the couple to enhance the partner’s comfort and involvement in labor, provides emotional support, physical support measure suggestions for labor progress, provides objective informational support and options for the woman so she can make informed decisions in the event of unforseen developments, facilitates communication with care providers as needed, and recognizes birth is a natural and key life experience that the mother will remember all her life.

What are the benefits of hiring a doula for support during pregnancy and labor?

A doula offers labor support, but also support during pregnancy.  By providing up to date research, emotional support and answering any other questions that may arise, your doula will be able to support you in various ways as soon as your contract is signed.

Are there any facts that show having a doula makes a difference?

Studies show that women who invest in doula services tend to have shorter labors with fewer complications, a reduced need for epidurals or other regional anesthesia for pain management, reduces the need for synthetic oxytocin (pitocin) to speed up labor, reduces the need for forceps, vacuum extraction, and the need for c-sections, enhances the woman’s satisfaction with her childbirth experience.

Will the doula take the place of my partner?

The doula’s goal and mission is to enhance the support a laboring woman receives by encouraging, assisting and aiding the partner’s role in in labor. Often times this can look like great team work, where the partner knows mom best and the doula knows birth best. Interlocking these two important key items brings great results. The doula isn’t just there to support the woman, she is there to support her partner  as well for hydration, breaks and emotional support.

Will we know our doula much before labor? How can we feel comfortable?

Based on the package chosen, you will meet with your doula once before labor if not more. We encourage more than one prenatal visit, but this is based on your preferences. During your visit(s), we will not only talk about birth, but get to know one another. You may also choose a package that includes unlimited text and email during business hours.
