My Promise As Your Doula

I take my job as your doula seriously. When I began birth work I don't think I truly understand the impact that doulas can potentially make -- for good and for bad. 

So, here are some promises that as your doula I make to you...


  • Never judge your decisions. I may push back if you've indicated you want me to. But judge? Nope. Never.
  • Tell you that you are amazing. Always. No matter what.
  • Let you tell your own birth story. I'm not going to take to Facebook, etc and even give vague details about your birth without your explicit permission.
  • Validate your inner feelings and decisions. Whatever you are feeling is true. Whatever decision you make is the right one for you.
  • Not replace your partner. 
  • Be your biggest cheerleader (but not the annoying kind).
  • Give you options, choices, risks, benefits, and alternatives throughout your entire labor.
  • Hold your birth in my heart and treasure the sacred time you've allowed me to be a part of. 

Those are just a few things you can expect from me as your doula. Doula work is such important work. I don't take it lightly.
