Fee Details: Childbirth and new parenthood is both a magical and challenging transition in life. As a doula, I honor the remarkable differences in each birth story, and hope to encourage parents to trust in themselves and the birth process. My services provide a free hour long consultation, two prenatal appointments, on call support, continuous birth support, and 1-2 postnatal appointments. I am also a childbirth educator with the Great Starts organization and a volunteer doula with St. Joseph hospital in Tacoma. I can provide private birth education as well as birth photography at an additional low cost. I will happily discuss reduced pricing and sliding scale solutions for those in financial need.

Andra

We picked Angela to be our doula with our first baby and we could not be happier with our choice. She is a dedicated professional and mother of three wonderful kids. We chose to have our baby at the hospital, so having her there to comfort and support me and my husband was a life saver. She scheduled a couple of sessions before and after birth as well, to make sure all our questions are answered and we feel confident in our new roles as parents. I warmly recommend her to anybody who needs extra support before, during and after labor.

Angela is amazing!  I was nervous to give birth, but she made me feel capable and confident.  She provided a wealth of information that helped me understand what to expect, think through my preferences and limits, and process my fears. Her calm and caring demeanor allowed me to relax and focus on my body and my baby. And when my birth didn’t go at all as planned, I felt prepared for this possibility and thankful to have her there for advice and to support my decisions.  After the birth, she continually checked in on us, and though I didn’t know what help to ask for, just knowing she cared and wanted to make sure we’re doing well meant so much!

My husband and I had the honor of having Angela attend the birth of our second son. Although she was still training her calm energy, paired with her own experience with birth and as a mama was such a wonderful addition to our experience. Angela truly offered support and shared something so profound, yet unbiased when I needed it. It was her words that brought me peace and allowed me to make the right choice for my sweet babe and I. She is calm and has a quiet strength, something I really believe all mamas need during such an extraordinary and vulnerable time. We adore her!!

I had the honor and privileged to work with Angela as a co-doula this week. We are both newish to this work and have attended the same amount of births but I learned SO much from her. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a calm, peaceful, comforting, presence. She was right there, supporting the birthing mama, every minute, until the end and she was very supportive and reassuring as well to me as well.

I would recommend her to any family that was in need of doula support or to any doula who is need of assistance. She is one strong, confident mama. I feel grateful to have met Angela and even more grateful to be able to witness her work. I wish I would have had her at my births.
