: DONA-trained Birth Doula (Feb '06), soon to be certified (I sent my certification packet in the mail as of 6.11.07!). Volunteer with the Center for the Childbearing Year.
: Southeast Michigan (I'm in Ann Arbor.)
: I have attended 11 births as of June '07, including 1 cesarean, 1 homebirth and 4 with an epidural.
: I love to help Mom's achieve natural births - I believe it is absolutely possible to do, best for Mom and baby and a great, empowering experience, but at the same time I also don't believe I can judge other women's pain or choices. I will fully support any decisions you make.
: The usual that doulas provide: 3 prenatal visits, continuous labor support, immediate postpartum and breastfeeding support and postpartum visits if desired.
: I charge based on a sliding scale, which is usually far less than what doulas in Ann Arbor cost (about $500-600.)
Please contact me with any questions you have. Thanks for your interest!
