MOTHER’S FRIEND DOULA SERVICES

Mommies Are Talking

"I had peace of mind ... knowing Chris would be right there beside us... she encouraged me with whatever decision I made. I would highly recommend her expertise. You won't be disappointed."

~Stephanie

"With Chris by my side I was able to achieve my goal (of an unmedicated birth). She was super supportive, she made me feel like it was all about me and my baby!  I recommend Chris to be your  doula, if it’s your first child or your 5th..." ~ Sarai

"You were constantly available to answer questions, make suggestions and just be there with a loving word or touch.  Your positivity and authenticity made a big difference in the challenging moments. Thank you so much, from the bottom of our grateful hearts!" ~ Aimee

"She helped me cope with the pains of birth, helped get my questions answered, kept me in the know and strong. When the time came and I decided I needed an epidural, we had a plan and she was there to support it. When the time came to push she was by my side, talking me through it..." ~Ariana

WHAT IS A DOULA?

A doula is a professional with evidence based training in pregancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. A doula provides emotional, physical, and educational support to a mother who is expecting, is experiencing labor or has recently given birth. The doula's purpose is to help women have a memorable, satisfying and empowering birth experience.

WHY SHOULD I HIRE A DOULA?

Research shows having the support of a Birth Doula greatly increases the chances of a spontaneous vaginal delivery without the need for interventions and medications. The risk of Cesarean Birth decreases and Mother's satisfaction with her birth experience goes up.

Because you need support at every stage of adding to your family, I can provide skilled services that meet your individual needs. These include Childbirth Education, birth planning information, relaxation, labor coping skills, positioning for labor, partner support, and postpartum support. I have expertise in basic infant care, and promotion of infant sleep in the weeks and even months after the birth.

ADDRESSING COVID 19 ISSUES RELATED TO CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION AND LABOR SUPPORT

Childbirth Classes and Digital Doula Support Available

During the current concerns raised by the outbreak of Covid 19, hospitals may not be providing in-person childbirth education and may have restrictions regarding support people to attend laboring women in the hospital setting. Mother's Friend is rising to the challenge to provide education and support by digital means and in person as allowed. Please contact Chris now for more information and visit the website periodically to see what's available. Together we can find our way through these challenging times.
