Circle of Light is now providing Doula services!
What is a doula? A doula is a non-medical birth professional whose role is to provide the mother and the rest of her support system with information, options, and support. Her job is not to take the place of the father or anyone else you would like to have with you during labor and birth, but to help them in doing a better job to give you the support you need. Doulas provide assistance in hospitals, birth centers, and at home births.
In addition to being with moms and their families during healthy, full-term births, my training is also as a bereavement doula. That means that I have additional training beyond what birth doulas normally receive to assist families with difficult birth outcomes such as when stillbirth or death shortly after birth is a possibility.
More detailed information will be available in the coming days and weeks. I look forward to serving our community in the capacity! Please let me know if you have any questions, requests, or referrals!
