DOULA SERVICES 

WHAT IS A DOULA?

As your doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. In my time in birth work, it is important to me to establish a calm and supportive environment for the birthing person and their families, so they feel as supported as possible in one of the greatest transitions of life, MOTHERHOOD. I draw on my knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with the staff to make sure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, and other techniques for comfort. I am independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.

WHAT DOULAS DO NOT DO

As a doula, I do not:

 

Perform clinical tasks, such as blood pressure, fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, etc. I am there to provide physical comfort, emotional support, and advocacy.

 

I do not make decisions for you. but I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision. I will also remind you if there is a departure from your Birth Plan.

 I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, but you or your partner will speak on your behalf to the clinical staff.

MASSAGE

Massage Services: I am a licensed and insured massage therapist. As I understand that pregnancy can be quite taxing on the body before and after birth, massage can be an excellent comfort measure to incorporate into your birthing experience.

 

I offer 2 prenatal 60 min treatments and 1 post-natal 90 min treatment for each client in- between our personal visits, which are optional.

“I would like to give a HUGE node of appreciation to Jahala! She was my doula and although my labor/delivery didn’t go all the way as planned she was there with me the whole way. Girl I’m still shook but nonetheless grateful. Thank you again”
