Your Doula Dawne, A Family is Born

Advocating for Your Best Birth

If you wanted to have a doula for your birth, but that didn't happen for this birth but you still want to tap into the knowledge that a doula possesses so that you can manifest the best possible birth outcome. This is an open format discussion with a doula over two two 45 minute sessions which will meet via Zoom. In these discussion, you will learn everything that I bring to my clients during their second prenatal doula visit with me. Please contact me for course contents. You will be provided with a handout on the stages of labor and comfort measures, and I will provide you with insight into what additional reading is beneficial for both birthing and partner. Empowering Birth classes are also offered by request at this time.
