In our first prenatal appointment with all of our doula clients, we spend time talk about everyones birth preferences. And for those who are hoping for an unmedicated birth, having an IV is not high on their list of desires.
Birthing at a birth center gives you more freedom of how you have your baby, but it does mean you need to think about what you will bring with in a different way.
And while some clients love to have that face to face support that they receive through our traditional Birth Doula Support, or our Postpartum Doula Support some have more specific needs. Those needs may not require that same physical presence at their birth. Because of that, we are officially launching our Virtual Doula Support.

A popular way we support our birth clients is through verbal affirmations during labor and delivery.
You may have read about or seen in your ultrasound that a baby can be posterior, and that news can sometimes be not exactly what you want to hear. However, our birth doulas are well trained in how to provide physical support prenatally and during birth to help, while also are able to direct you to other resources that may help.
Sometimes we take breathing for granted, because, well, we normally don’t think about it. However, we are challenging you to really notice your breath.
But what exactly do we do in the birth room while you are laboring and pushing? The short answer is: whatever you need!
Just like you, infants sometimes are not in the mood for certain activities. While they cannot verbalize that, parents, babysitters, and other guardians begin to notice signs of what the baby is feeling.
