What is a doula?
Your doula offers a wealth of knowledge and experience that can help you feel like you have a real live, modern, and up to date copy of “What to expect” at your beck and call throughout your pregnancy. Not only is a labor doula an invaluable resource for knowledge, doulas also provide emotional and physical support during pregnancy and labor. We are here to ease your fears and anxiety and help you and your partner feel calm and confident.
In essence: doulas help build confidence and instill strength.
Our labor doulas are on call for you from the moment you sign your contract. We’re here to answer your questions before, during and after your baby is born.
We support parents and birthing people through all types of birth including but not limited to:
- Cesarean birth
- Vaginal birth (with and without medication)
We proudly attend home births as well as hospital births at the following facilities: Wentworth-Douglass, Portsmouth Regional Hospital, Frisbie Memorial Hospital, Exeter Hospital, Maine Medical Center, York Hospital, and more!
