What is a Doula?
How will I know if having doula support is for me?
I'm not sure I am ready to be a mom. What are my options?
Someone would love to talk with you about your options, call or text day or night (late night calls may not be returned until the next morning), but we would love to talk with you about the uncertainty you are facing.
Labor of Love Birth Doulas...
Recognize that birth is a key experience for a mother and her family and understands there are significant physiological and emotional needs of a woman preparing for and in labor.
Doulas stay with mothers throughout labor and birth and facilitate communication between the birthing woman, her physician and when involved, her partner.
What is a Labor of Love Doula?
Yes there is, a birth doula works prenatally and throughout birth with a family followed by a few postpartum visits. A postpartum doula meets a few times prenatally and then focuses her time the 12 weeks after the baby has been born.
Labor of Love has both types of doulas, * most of the doulas are both and provide seamless support through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. (*At this time our postpartum doulas are only serving clients that have been in the program for birth).
