Birth Doula Services

A doula is a partner that is well versed in birthing that can help coach you and your life partner throughout your birth, and provide you with a positive, empowering experience.

Benefits of a doula include:

  • decreasing the probability of the mother needing Pitocin (synthetic oxytocin drug used to speed up labor and birth)
  • decreasing the probability of the mother having a cesarean birth
  • decreasing the probability of the mother needing or using pain medication
  • increasing the probability that the mother will feel their childbirth experience was a positive, happy one

Because I am a student doula, I am offering two low cost packages for the Phoenix, Tucson, and Pinal County areas.
