What is a Birth and Postpartum Doula?

Doulas are professional birth coaches. They make a wonderful addition to your birth team because they have in-depth knowledge of the woman's reproductive physiology and evidence-based wisdom on the birth journey. This knowledge allows them to provide physical, emotional, and informative support throughout pregnancy, birth, and the fourth stage, the transition to motherhood.

Inspire what is possible in Birth

A doula needs to know a lot about how pregnancy and birth works and how it looks as well as hiccups that can come up. They inspire ways to cope with the sensations of labor, they inform on what the options are for labor and birth in every setting. Doulas help mothers/partners understand the changes of labor and birth, they help clients get clarity about their desires and choices. They can discuss what testing options are available for care providers, alternative remedies for common pregnancy complaints. In addition, many doulas work with women as emotional and spiritual guides. They can help improve movement and sleep hygiene. Doulas know how to serve families in the postnatal transition by using basic newborn care and sibling support, caring for the mother. She works for the family by holding sacred space.


Client Testimonials

Family Feedback

Justine brings a vibrant, genuine energy with her.  I always felt understood. She helped me understand what my body was experiencing which gave me the confidence to make healthy decisions for myself.

Our hospital didn't allow more than one support person and I wished she could have been there physically but I was so happy to have her guide us virtually.  While I was in labor she was able to provide comfort with video calls, voice notes, and text messages.
