Doula Training Workshops & Services

Birth & Postpartum Doula Services

Women supporting women through labor is an

ageless tradition common to all cultures ...


Birth Doula Services:

A childbirth assistant, or "birth doula", provides you and your family with one-on-one, continuous care during your labor and birth.  This service often provides the nurturing attention and support that traditional obstetrical care isn't always able to provide.

A Doula's presence during childbirth provides:

valuable information, emotional & physical comfort and encouragement

a strong, unbiased advocate for your birth plan

continuous care & support during your entire labor and birth

guidance & assistance with relaxation, breathing and positions

assistance with breastfeeding

Our services include...

on-call support during pregnancy

two prenatal sessions to provide education & guidance with your birth plan

early labor support in your home

continuous active labor support in your chosen birth setting

early postpartum support & care

breastfeeding support & consultation

one or two postpartum home visits

"Imagine what might happen if the majority of women emerged from their labor beds with a renewed sense of the strength and power of their bodies and their capacity for ecstasy through giving birth. When enough women realize that birth is a time of great opportunity to get in touch with their true power, and then they are willing to assume responsibility for this, we will reclaim the power of birth and help move technology where it belongs - in the service of birthing women, not as their master."

~ Christiane Northrup, M.D.


The Fourth Trimester ~ Postpartum Doula Services:
