As your doulas, we will nurture and support you throughout your journey of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Delve deeper into the experience you desire while exploring all of your options. Honor and respect your vision of the perfect birth while providing information for informed decision-making. Drawing on our intuition, knowledge and experience to be a loving-supportive presence during the beautiful sacred transformation that you desire.
Studies have shown that having a Doula as a member of your birth team lowers the risk of cesarean by 50% and shortens labor by an average of 41 minutes. Doula's are with the laboring person 100% of the time compared to the 6-12% caregivers are able to be. There are endless benefits to having a doula, and only positive outcomes!
"I cannot recommend Angelia enough! She is beyond knowledgeable and such a sweet and comforting person. I can’t picture a better doula and I can’t imagine having had anyone else at my birth. She was so supportive throughout the entire process, from prenatal appointments to postpartum and everything in between. She is someone you definitely want on your birth team. I’m so glad I found her and that she was with me during my birth. Would give even more stars if I could!"

HOW THIS WORKS
01// The Initial Email
Once we receive your email I will send over information about our birth doula services and get in touch to schedule a time to chat more about the birth you desire as well as how a doula can support your family during this sacred journey.
02// The Call
During your call you will have the chance to ask questions, share about your dream for this birth experience, and hear more about how our team of doulas work to provide purposeful support to the women we serve.
03// Meet & Greet
You have decided you’d like to move forward with a meet and greet! One of our doulas will be in touch to schedule a time to get together. Once you meet and you both feel its a good match you will receive booking information!
Is a doula the same thing as a midwife?
In short, they are not the same care. As a doula we are only there to provide emotional, physical, and informational support. If you’re looking for a midwife we would be happy to send over some references!
Does a doula replace the partner?
Doula's are not to replace your partner. Together doula's and partners actually make a great team to help comfort and support the mother throughout the birthing process. Partners even report they feel more at ease with a doula's presence and enjoy the experience more.
What if I have a transfer, or c-section?
Doula's support families through that too! Doula's are sometimes allowed in the OR and it is important to discuss your doula's presence in the event of a cesarean with your provider. Having an extra person by your side can help comfort you and your partner while helping you both stay informed!
