As a Montrice and Doula I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience.   I draw on my knowledge and experience as a midwife, doula and mother to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with other caregivers 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 (if present), make suggestions for labor progress, help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort. As a montrice I can also perform clinical services, such as blood pressure, fetal heart checks, and cervical progress checks (when requested) during labor. When you are ready to go to the hospital; my role of shall be that of Doula only (no clinical services). My goal is to help you have the most comfortable, safe, and rewarding birth possible. I am independent and self-employed. As your montrice and doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.

I also want to learn about your own best ways of coping with pain and fatigue and how you and your partner foresee working together. We will then tailor a Birth Plan that is specific to your needs.
I will also inform you of times when I am not available for labor support. To cover those times, I will arrange one (or more) back-up doula(s) that you may speak with or also meet. Of course, you have as much choice over your back-up doula as your primary doula. We will also decide on other meeting times and will certainly want to remain in touch by telephone.
