Basically, a doula is like a BFF / personal coach / wise sage / protective big sister holding you up for all the things pregnancy, birth and postpartum. The doula supports you and your choices, starting from fertility all the way to the first year after baby. I look out for you and support your wellness, whether this is birth #1, 2 , 3 or whatever number. We leave the medical side of things to the folks wearing scrubs. Doulas are trained professionals who provide physical support and evidenced based information. You deserve doula services that enable you to make the best choices for yourself and your family. Along this journey, I hold space for you to be empowered to take the time you need, and understand your personal plans.
ANY new or soon to be parent who would like a different birth experience. The doula does not replace your partner or visitors during childbirth.(Mother and Mother-in-laws can both be included completely at the ibrth location's discretion.) The key to getting prepared for your birth, includes the other parent as a co-star on your birth team. I love including a supportive partner and giving them relief when they need it.
Trust the facts. Louisiana’s maternal mortality rate is 58.1 deaths per 100,000
births, which is the highest in the U.S. The state legislature has stepped up
efforts by making new maternal health statutes into law. The legislature has charged the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) to expand use of Midwives and Doulas. In 2022 all health insurances cover Midwifery care, and DHH is creating a state Doula Registry Board for expanding insurance reimbursement to Doulas beginning in 2023. Some HSA and FSA accounts are covering doula support services with a referral from your doctor, psychiatrist or midwife.
Yes. I come into your birth or parenting space totally judgment-free-no matter what. If you decide to have an epidural, or scheduled Cesarean birth, then I will provide support services before and after the baby arrives. As a certified health coach I offer a variety of nontraditional services, so check out the Maternal Health and Wellness options. The peaceful relaxation sessions for example has one virtual "Your body and this pregnancy" session, and another in person private session for calming relaxation exercises. My intention is fully supporting and empowering you.
