How will my partner(s) and a doula work together?
Doulas know birth, but your partner(s) know you — in fact, doulas and partners make a great team! I support whatever role you and your partner(s) would like your partner(s) to have in your birth, and encourage your partner(s) to bring the knowledge and history they have to the birth experience. I also support partners so they can get rest, nourishment, or some affirmation of their own!
do you work with other birth professionals?
Absolutely! I am happy to provide referrals for many other professionals in the area. I can direct you to chiropractors, breast/chestfeeding consultants, physical therapists, massage therapists, mental health professionals, acupuncturists, and others who can help you have your best birth!
What is your radius of service?
I serve pregnant people and families in the greater Boston area. I gladly work with those planning to birth in hospitals, birth centers, and at home. Please reach out if you have questions about your specific provider or location. Please note that I do not attend planned unassisted births.
