What is a birth doula?

     ​Elizabeth's doula vision is to:

  • Support and honor you and your family every step along your path to motherhood.

  • Build your birthing confidence through sharing knowledge, collaborating on your birth plan, and supporting your preferences throughout labor.

  • Offer you a safe place to explore and address feelings related to pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, and postpartum well-being.

  • Enter into your labor space with comfort measures, a peaceful presence, and nonjudgmental support for you and your partner.

  • ​Enhance communication between you and your provider during labor, helping you to gather all the information to make your own wise birth choices.

  • Join you after childbirth in processing the experiences and emotions of your birth.

Elizabeth is certified by DONA International, the oldest, largest, and premiere doula organization in the world, and is pursuing certification with Lamaze International as a certified childbirth educator (CCE). ​ She holds a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Learn more about Elizabeth's training and experience.

Newborn baby birth doula labor support

The day you give birth is the most important one of your life; you are forever changed, forever a mother.  Elizabeth believes in your innate ability to birth your baby. She offers gentle, confident labor support and prenatal education, dedicated to helping you feel prepared and empowered throughout your birth experience​. 

A doula is a professionally trained labor assistant who supports you through late pregnancy, your labor, and the early postpartum period. Research shows that having a doula with you during labor reduces your likelihood of having interventions such as epidural or cesarean.
