It’s a question we get a lot in our consults. You want to know what it will be like have us in your space. How will we act and interact? We feel like the picture above is the best explanation we could ever give.
“But WAIT!” you say, “you aren’t even in that picture!”
It’s easy to miss the doula.
There is nothing more than a hand and a faint outline visible that gives any clue to there being anyone other than a laboring mother and her partner.
And that’s the point.
As your doula we strive to be a constant presence, someone who has your back throughout your entire process. We are strong hands and a listening ear. We happily buzz in the background of your birth while ever pushing you and your needs front and center.
We are a soft shoulder to lean on.
We are the hands that remind you to drink as we rub off the sweat of your hard work.
We are the gentle voice in your ear reminding you of your strength and capabilities and we are the loud voice of exclamation and boundless pride when you do hard things.
We are your doulas, and we are humbled and thankful that you choose us to bear witness and hold space for you.
