We will always support the notion that women will birth best where they feel safest, and for many that will mean delivery in the hospital. A hospital delivery does not necessarily mean that a natural birth cannot be achieved; having a natural birth in a medical center may, however, require a greater necessity for support and advocacy.
Our doula team has years of experience assisting families to navigate the sometimes complex logistics of hospital delivery and provide the continuity of a trusted provider that can enhance the birthing experience. Having supported hundreds of women in this capacity, we have the background to help women and partners experience the birth they desire.
We also have a special focus to support women experiencing high risk pregnancies and deliveries, and seek out referrals to appropriate care providers should the path of their care be complicated for any reason, at any stage of gestation. It is our goal to match clients’ needs and desires toward the best achievable outcome for mother and baby.
