As labor progresses, the calming presence of another woman experienced in normal childbirth is extraordinarily reassuring to both mother and partner.
In addition to greatly enhancing the mother’s comfort, the doula may also assist both mother and partner to understand birthing options and to make informed decisions.
Doulas offer birth mothers, babies and partners a unique level of skill, commitment and support.

Ingesting your placenta in capsule form is believed to gradually replace the hormones lost so rapidly after childbirth, and therefore eases drastic mood swings that can occur postpartum. Other benefits may include increase in enriched breastmilk, increased energy, decrease in iron deficiency, lochia and insomnia.
Your placenta is carefully prepared in my home, and will be delivered to you ready in capsules with detailed instructions.
