labor doula

Will you support me if I choose an epidural?

YES!!!! I've been told by many clients that they seek doula support and childbirth classes because they desire unmedicated childbirth and since they don't know what to expect during labor or how they might react, they want my help to achieve their goals. Some women hire me as their doula to help them delay the use of an epidural during labor and want guidance as to when to get it and still keep labor progressing. I've got special tricks and tools for medicated births! In fact, I teach a workshop for Labor & Delivery nurses at Northside Hospital, which includes a demonstration of positions to be used for medicated labor and the pushing/birthing stage.
