As I am getting certified through DONA International I offer volunteer doula support. This includes one prenatal visit and one postpartum visit along with continuous support during labor and delivery. During this time I am taking all precautions: wearing a mask, gloves and self isolating. I know this is a scary and difficult time but my hope as a doula is to help alleviate as much of the weight off your shoulders.

Shannon was of great support during my pregnancy, labor, delivery and postparturm. During our initial meetings Shannon was asking the right questions to find out about my wants and needs. She provided my husband and I with a birthing plan format and valuable information to prepare us for labor. She made herself available to help answer some of our questions. She was knowledgeable and even when she did not have the answer at the moment she would follow up with me after doing some research. Shannon helped me find placenta encapsulation services, she also suggested very effective techniques to bring on labor when I was 41 weeks. The night I went into labor she was prompt to answer and started supporting me via the phone. Shannon came to Our Birthing Center as soon as possible, just in time to help us deliver our daughter. She knew exactly what to do to facilitate the process, gave my husband and I encouraging words and techniques. She took amazing pictures of our water birth experience and I could not have asked for a better birth. Shannon followed up with me postpartum and continued providing me with great guidance and emotional support. Shannon is simply amazing! and it is evident being a doula is something she is dedicated and passionate about. We enjoyed working with her and thank her for making of such a special moment a great memory.
