What are the values of our doulas?

Not all doulas practice the same. Our team shares the following values and are committed to offering services aligned with these standards. 

Dedicated

Dedicated to continuous learning to provide the most up-to-date, evidence-based care and education to the families we work with. We believe in the power of providing a balanced holistic and evidence based approach to educating our clients in all their options.

Inclusive

Inclusive and welcoming to all birthing people and their wishes and preferences. We believe there is not one “right” way to birth a baby and navigate postpartum. Our role is to educate and empower our clients to make the best decisions for their family. We also recognize that not all families look the same. Not every birthing person identifies as a woman. Not every parent refers to themself as mom or dad. We are COMMITTED to including our LGBTQ+ friends because exclusive hetero-normative language is harmful.

Committed

Committed to teaching our clients what advocacy looks like in the birth and postpartum period. We help our clients understand their legal birthing rights, how to ask empowering questions to providers, and what true informed consent looks like in a medical setting. Our clients are left feeling empowered and equipped for birth and parenthood.

Compassionate

Compassionate individualized care for our clients is our number one priority. We take time to understand who our clients are, what they want, and what their needs are. Our doulas provide a listening ear, show up with open hearts, and understand pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is a transformative.

Placenta Encapsulation

  • During pregnancy, the placenta produces many useful hormones,  and when a mother births her placenta, she loses those hormones.   It can often take months for the body to balance these hormones again.  Taking placenta pills helps reintroduce these hormones into the mother's body in small doses until her body resumes its natural hormonal balance. Services includes:
  • 100-200 nutrient-rich encapsulated placenta pills
  • Placenta tincture to be used long after the capsules are gone to be used during menopause or other times of transition or emotional distress.
  • Umbilical cord keepsake to honor the key role it played in pregnancy.
