Virginia Padoula
Doula in Northern Virginia

Meagan Pa, RN, B.S.N, CD(DONA), AAHCC

I am a Registered Nurse, a Childbirth Doula in Fairfax Virginia certified with DONA International and an instructor for the Bradley Method®. I have three children that were delivered at home in Alexandria, Springfield, and Woodbridge with the help and support of a midwife and my husband. I took The Bradley Method® classes when I was pregnant and through them I learned to trust my body and to cope with the intensity of labor. My children's births were normal and uncomplicated. They were also magical, empowering, and utterly beautiful. I hope all women have similar experiences in labor. The education, learning about what is normal and possible during childbirth is what I hope to share with expectant mothers.
