birth doulas are passionate about the birth process and believe in the ability of each mother to
bring her baby into the world.  They comfort, encourage, educate and care for the laboring mother and
her birth support team.  By listening carefully to their clients needs and desire, they offer unconditional
support throughout pregnancy, labor and birth.  The heart of our birth doulas is that each woman walks

confidence for the days to come.
