Preparing For Birth and Beyond  - Childbirth Classes Doula Services
I am a doula and childbirth educator living in 
 Berwick, PA.  I  travel to Williamsport, Lewisburg, Selinsgrove, Danville, Bloomsburg, Scranton, Wilkes Barre and in between!
 
The word Doula is Greek meaning 'a woman who serves' 
As a doula and childbirth educator I provide education and support during pregnancy, labor, birth, and after. 
 
My role as a doula is non medical.  During labor and birth I am there to support you  and your support person by providing guidance, physical, and emotional support.  Nurses and care providers come and go, I am a continuous presence throughout your labor and birth 
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!
