Central Indiana Doula

Central Indiana Doula

As a birth doula, I strive to educate women throughout pregnancy and make it known that pregnancy and birth are beautiful. It does not need to be feared! I am here to support you through the process of making a birth plan and other preparations before baby arrives. During labor I will be present to provide comfort measures and emotional support.

Why Hire a Doula?
  • More likely to have a spontaneous birth
  • Less likely to have an epidural or use any type of pain medication
  • Less likely to give birth by cesarean, or need assistance with vacuum extraction or forceps
  • Less likely to give birth to a baby with a low Apgar score
  • Less likely to be dissatisfied or negatively rate their childbirth

Wise Words

“Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth as well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”
