As a DONA certified birth doula, I am happy to provide doula support to families in the greater Denver and Boulder areas and nearby communities. Thank you so much for considering me to be your doula! It’s a privilege to be present for such a special and singular moment in a family’s life.
A labor doula is a non-medical childbirth assistant who provides continuous emotional, physical and educational support for the laboring mother. The doula does not replace the partner, doctor, nurse, or midwife, but works together with them to ensure a positive birth experience. A doula helps expectant parents make decisions by providing information and support, but does not make decisions for them.
I believe that birth is a natural function of a woman’s body and that every woman already has the skills and knowledge she needs to give birth in her own unique way. Birth works, if we let it! As a doula, I am present to help expecting parents create the birth that they envision for themselves and to experience birth fully and actively.
I'm excited to announce a new development in my doula practice: starting in November 2012 I will be adding a new partner, Kathy Dano, to my practice. Click here to learn more about Kathy and how our partnership works.
