A Labor Assistant or “Doula” is a professional care provider who understands and trusts the process of birth, who respects its transcendent and sacred aspects as well as its physical and emotional aspects, and who facilitates the birth experience for the parents, baby and primary care provider. A doula provides continuity of care prenatally through the postpartum period including: emotional support, informational support and advocacy/facilitation.

Labor support doulas are trained and experienced labor support persons who attend to the emotional and physical comfort needs of laboring women to smooth the labor process. They do not perform clinical tasks such as heart rate checks, or vaginal exams but rather use massage, aromatherapy, positioning suggestions, etc., to help labor progress as well as possible. A labor support doula joins a laboring woman either at her home or in hospital or birth center and remains with her until a few hours after the birth. In addition to emotional support, doulas work as advocates of their client’s wishes and may assist in communicating with medical staff to obtain information for the client to make informed decisions regarding medical procedures.

I am an ALACE/ToLabor certified and Birth Arts International trained Labor Assistant. I work in and around the Houston area. I have been helping at births for over twelve years. My goals are to empower women and support the whole family through pregnancy, labor, delivery and the postpartum period, to facilitate communication with everyone involved, to encourage the birthing mother and her family and to advocate on their behalf. I specialize in working in hospitals and with hospital staff to create the desired birth experience for my clients and their loved ones. I also attend home births and at birth centers. I look forward to growing with each birth I attend. Every birth is unique and I learn something from every family I work with.

My services include a minimum of three prenatal visits (no maximum), full emotional and informational support throughout pregnancy via phone, email, etc., full support during labor and delivery up to four hours after delivery (depending on need), introductory assistance with nursing and latch-on, at least one post-natal visit (up to 3) and continuous emotional and informational support as long as is needed. Clients also receive access to my entire lending library and all the resources available to me.
