If you are interested in Doula services, or you know someone who might be, please feel free to contact me with questions or to schedule a free consultation.
Please note that doulas specialize in non-medical skills and do not perform clinical tasks, such as vaginal exams or fetal heart rate monitoring. Doulas do not diagnose medical conditions, offer second opinions, or give medical advice. The doula’s goal is to help the woman have a positive and satisfying childbirth experience.
