Labor Support

“If a woman doesn’t look like a Goddess during labor, then someone isn’t treating her right.”

Benefits of a Labor Support Nurse/Doula

        When you combine a perinatal nurse and a labor doula you are equipped with a powerful resource for your labor support.  Nurses develop keen senses to recognize variations in fetal well-being and variables disturbing the progression of labor.  These are skills that follow your nurse as your labor doula.
As your doula, I’m equipped to:
  • Provide recommendations aimed to promote fetal well-being and foster the progression of labor
  • Offer continuous physical and emotional support
  • Assist in guarding and maintaining the calm and peaceful environment you seek
  • Navigate the hospital and birth center setting with ease
  • Help you maintain your standards of care and set boundaries with confidence
  • Advocate for your unmedicated labor experience as desired
  • Help facilitate communication between you and your healthcare team
  • Powerfully help you remember your commitment in an environment that sometimes advocates for something else
  • Comprehend, communicate, and facilitate your understanding of recommended alternatives and interventions
  • Provide information through evidenced-based knowledge and experience
  • Assist you in developing a straightforward birth plan to communicate your desires
  • Bring you closer to the pleasant and peaceful birth story you may be proud to remember and share
