Emotional support - what that really means
Feeling like you are being listened to and feeling validated are really important aspects of your birth and postpartum experience. Evidence shows that birthing people who felt like their choices were heard and respected report more feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment around their birth experience. A birth and postpartum doula can listen, validate your experience and your feelings, help you research your options for care, help you make an informed choice, do the legwork to find you the best local resources to meet your needs, and provide you with a sounding board when you just need to talk something out.
When you book me as your doula, I'm available to you for this support via phone or text any time. Outside of our regularly scheduled prenatals, we can also meet up in person any time if you feel like you just need a little extra one on one.
