Birth Doula Making a Connection with Mother's and Families in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C.

Whether you've chosen the hospital, a birth center, or home to deliver your baby, educating yourself on your options and having a support team to help guide you through labor are unequivocally beneficial. I offer childbirth classes to help you get access to all the information you require and doula services to support you before, during, and after your labor.

"The quality of emotional care received by the mother during labor, birth, and immediately afterwards is one vital factor that can strengthen or weaken the emotional ties between mother and child. Furthermore, when women receive continuous emotional support and physical comfort throughout labor their obstetric outcomes may improve."
