Congratulations parents! The journey to your child’s birth is one that you will never forget. The support of another woman during birth is an ancient tradition, it’s importance often forgotten with the emergence of technology. Present day doula’s however, are trained in the delicate balance between the technology of today and the secrets of our wise woman ancestors. Every woman deserves this support and to have access to the tools that will make birth a more positive experience. Hiring a doula results in shorter labors with fewer complications. Families tend to have shorter hospital stays, less complications, and breastfeed more easily. A doula can support the whole family and is beneficial for any kind of birth plan from cesarean to home birth.
Jill is certified with DONA International, the world’s leading doula organization.
