Doula Registry

You're pregnant.  You've done everything during your pregnancy to be healthy and give your baby a wonderful home to live in within you. You have readied your family, your home and yourselves for your new little one.  You have taken your prenatal vitamins everyday and have the car seat, diapers, crib and clothes ready to go.  

You are ready to give birth, but there is one thing that you still need...  A Doula.

Birth doulas provide emotional support, physical comfort, information to assist decision-making and non-medical support that moms and families need during pregnancy and the birth of a baby. As your doula we will stay at your side throughout your entire labor and birth offering back rubs, positioning suggestions, an encouraging word, and information about decisions you will make. We are also there to support your coach, partner, family and friends. 

When a doula is present during and after childbirth, women report greater satisfaction with their birth experience, make more positive assessments of their babies, have fewer cesareans and requests for medical intervention, and less postpartum depression. Studies have shown that babies born with doulas present tend to have shorter hospital stays with fewer admissions to special care nurseries, breastfeed more easily and have more affectionate mothers in the postpartum period.

Create your Doula Registry today and let your family and friends shower you with the gift of labor support.
