Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Personal Touch Doula Service web site.
On this site, you will find information about various topics surrounding your pregnancy and labor, as well as an introduction to myself and the services I provide. I hope you will find this site useful, and I look forward to hearing from you.
If you are wondering what a doula is... a doula recognizes birth as a key life experience that the mother will remember all her life.
Originally, the term doula was referred to as, “the most important female slave or servant in an ancient Greek household”. A doula is now referred to as, “a woman experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after childbirth”. (Klaus, Kennell & Klaus – Mothering The Mother.)
My job is to serve you and ensure that your needs are met. I can assist you with planning your birth, and educating you beyond your typical childbirth classes. I offer training in your home, where you're comfortable and tell you how we can work together to achieve your desires; not on the hospital grounds where you are told how they will deliver your baby.
My mission is to eliminate unnecessary medical interventions by educating and supporting my clients.
My goal is to assist you in achieving your birth ... your way.
