“Birth is an opportunity for spiritual growth and healing.
I believe in holding a loving space for women, to cultivate their intuition,
and help them discover what tools and support are best for their journey
of conscious conception, pregnancy and motherhood.” Paula Mallis
What is a doula?
A doula is an ancient Greek term that translates into “caregiver” or “woman of service”
and has been used over the past several decades to describe a woman who provides various
non-medical support measures during labor, such as massage, visualization, and meditation.
Whether you have decided to have a home birth, birth center birth or hospital birth,
a Doula is there to hold space and support the pregnant woman and her unique birth experience.
Benefits of hiring a birth doula–
Hiring a Doula who offers support and guidance can support a woman and her partner
(if present) through the birthing process regardless of their birth intentions.
No one should have to go through this journey alone. Having an educated and supportive
Doula that is energetically in alignment with you, can help enhance your labor and birthing experience.
What does a doula provide?
A Doula provides clients with the education and tools to enhance their
birthing experience by ensuring that their choices are honored, creating a safe and comfortable
birth environment. A doula can provide hands-on physical support during the labor process,
through massage and other complementary modalities.
Birth Doula Package
At 26 weeks we will begin the journey together as we prepare for the birthing process
and the arrival of your baby. We will meet for a total of two prenatal sessions and one postpartum visit.
These sessions are to educate, provide information and emotional support for you and your partner
(if present) before and during the labor and birthing process. The intention for our time together is for you
(and your partner) to experience being completely supported, heard and nurtured
through your own unique journey into parenthood.
1st Prenatal Session: is a two hour session we will explore your ideals, wishes and desires
for your birth experience. I will guide you and your partner (if present) through a process
that brings forward clarity and understanding of the birthing process.
2nd Birth Prep Session: is a two hour, one on one session that includes educational information
about the labor and birthing process and reframing the stages of labor. We will discuss your birth plan
and intentions regardless of how you’ve chosen to birth whether at home, a birth center or hospital.
