A doula’s duty is to provide a continuous source of comfort, encouragement and support
Joy of Birth
Having a baby is an enormous responsibility. Birth can also be a powerful and positive experience for a family when they welcome their baby. By making the decision to have a home birth, you are taking control of your body and your health care. In the past this responsibility has been given over to doctors and hospitals. Today more and more women are turning to midwives to help them have the birth they desire.
Is Home Birth Dangerous?
Many people think that homebirth is dangerous. However research shows that for healthy women with normal pregnancies the risk of c-section, forceps, labor induction, artificial rupture of the membranes, augmentation and their associated problems are significantly less if you birth at home.

As a licensed midwife I utilize both western medicine and holistic therapies in my practice.
