“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.”

What We Don't Provide
We are not midwives. We do not perform clinical tasks, such as fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, etc. We are here to provide physical, educational and emotional support. We do not deliver babies, although we are more than happy to provide referrals to clients who seek the care of a midwife. Because comfort is a big part of our job, Doulas are there to cater to your spirit, heart, mind, and soul (sometimes your back, neck and shoulders too).
