"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about
making mothers...strong, competent, capable mothers
who trust themselves and know their inner strength."

Congratulations! You're having a baby. What comes next? If you don't exactly know, you're not alone.

 

Pregnancy and birth can bring about a multitude of emotions and is a time of significant change. It can feel overwhelming and confusing with so many decisions and so much information to navigate. It's easy to feel like you're drowning in a sea of information and that you must decide which direction to turn to find the answers that make sense to you and your unique journey.

You weren't meant to do this alone. Adding a doula to your support team gives you the calming reassurance every expecting parent needs. A doula can help guide you through your decisions and provide the information and support you need to feel confident and empowered. With your doula by your side, you'll have a warm, sensitive, and knowledgeable ally to help you navigate this exciting time.

Whether you just received that first positive pregnancy test, are eagerly anticipating your due date, or have already welcomed your little one into the world, hiring a doula can be the most critical choice you make!

You can have a positive experience you feel great about.

My promise to you is simple:

NO judgement. NO shame. NO guilt.

No matter what your journey looks like,

I will support YOU!

WHY WOULD I WANT A             TO

ATTEND MY BIRTH?

A Doula is a professional birth coach who provides emotional, informational, physical, and mental support to women during the prenatal, birth, and postpartum periods. Doulas do not provide medical care but are extraordinarily knowledgeable about childbirth.

 

The Doula's primary role is to provide any necessary support to the mother and her partner during childbirth. Having a Doula will cut back on labor time, help reduce anxiety, and lower the rate of medical intervention such as a C-section. She will also ensure that mama has a positive and safe birth experience, whether in home or at a hospital.

"I wasn't sure if we needed a doula, but having Ayla present at our son's birth was incredibly helpful and absolutely worth every penny! Ayla has a friendly, calm, and trustworthy demeanor...I don't think I could have achieved my goal of having an unmedicated birth without Ayla's support. It was an awesome experience! Highly recommend."
