Birth Doula Services - Fort Worth

Supporting growing families is my passion! I have been a Certified Birth Doula through Doulas of North America (DONA) since May 2009 and have been serving pregnant and birthing women through doula and massage work since 2005. I serve pregnant women who plan to birth at home, a birth center, or the hospital.

"Doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth.

Studies have shown that when doulas attend birth, labors are shorter with fewer complications, babies are healthier, and they breastfeed more easily.

  • Recognize birth as a key experience the mother will remember all her life
  • Understand the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a women in labor
  • Assists the woman in preparing for and carrying our her plans for birth

  • Facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and her clinical care providers
  • Perceive her role as nurturing and protecting the woman's memory of the birth experience
  • Allow the woman's partner to participate at his/her comfort level
