A doula is a trained + experienced labor support professional who provides uninterrupted physical, emotional, mental and spiritual support to a woman in labor.

An integral and solid member of your birth team, a doula mothers the mother and provide soothing, nurturing, caring support  throughout the entire birth process.

Because birth is wild, raw, primal, intense, and will require all of you, it’s going to take you on a wild ride, one that you can never really know how it’s going to turn out. So why not approach it from a sense of fierce adventure?  My doula services are for conscious couples seeking a team member to support, guide, nurture and assist them on the ride of a lifetime.

Our work would begin prior to birth, where I meet with you two times for approximately 1-2 hours. This is where we start to build our relationship of trust and respect. We discuss birth preferences, fears, thoughts and intentions. We also delve into childbirth ed, comfort techniques, birth positions and pain management strategies.

From 37 weeks on, I am on call and arrive anytime mother wants and and stay until 1-2 hours after baby is born. I do not leave the mother’s side – no matter how long birth is – and provide physical, mental, emotional and spiritual support. Unlimited phone, email and text support, as well as breastfeeding support is also included.

“Amanda was an indispensable factor in the pre-partum, labor, and even postpartum experience for myself, my husband, my son, and our tiny new friend!”

“Her energy is positive without fail! Her comfort techniques are creative and truly help distract from pain and fear.”

“The wonderful energy that Amanda brought to my birthing experience helped us stay calm, keep our sense of humor and help me navigate the strange journey of birth as a first-time mom. She also was a great coach, supporting me through the pain and providing me with the extra strength I needed to keep going. I couldn’t have had a better experience!”

“Amanda is very communicative from the start in wanting to know what kind of environment a Mom hopes to labor in, and she helps to honor that vision throughout. She is calming under pressure, and encouraging when you need reinforcement.”
