The word Doula is Greek meaning 'a woman who serves'
I live in Berwick, PA and travel to Williamsport, Lewisburg, Danville, Bloomsburg, Scranton, Wilkes Barre and in between!
As a doula I provide education and support during pregnancy, labor, birth, and after. My role is non medical. During labor and birth I am there to support the mom and help her support person help her with physical and emotional support. I am a continuous presence throughout
I work with couples who desire a medicated birth, unmedicated birth, or who are having a cesarean birth. My job is to help you explore your options and make sure you have the information to make your own decisions. I work to empower you! This is YOUR birth. I want you to feel supported throughout and happy with your birth experience!
As a DONA International certified doula I follow their
Standards of Practice
Code of Ethics
