Fruit of Your Womb Doula Services

I started with Fruit of Your Womb Doula Services 3 years ago, taking on clients as God blessed me with them. I then took off a year ('08) when my 2nd daughter was born (last June). And so far, it has been an exciting spring ('09)!! It's more of a ministry to me, really, being able to share in the journey that my clients take during pregnancy. I love preparing women for this experience known as childbirth. As a doula, my heart's desire is to teach women to trust their bodies, instill in them the knowledge to make informed decisions about the way they want to give birth, and empower them to embrace motherhood with confidence!

It's a personal choice, whether or not to actually hire a Doula, but studies show that having another woman present at a birth may actually benefit the laboring mother in various ways:
  • reduction in epidural requests and other analgesics
  • reduction in Cesarean rates and in the use of Pitocin
  • increase in shorter labors
  • increase in maternal satisfaction and bonding, which can lead to a higher occurrence of breastfeeding
Contact me today for a free consultation and see if having a Doula is right for your birth!!!
