Pregnant In Mississippi?
Family-Centered Birth Doula in the Greater Jackson, MS Area
As a highly trained, full-time birth doula and postpartum doula, I serve expecting and newly postpartum families, like yours, in central MS. I work with you to help you define your options for birth, identify obstacles that could get in the way, and find alternatives and solutions to those obstacles. I also help you create and protect a safe, comfortable, and relaxed space for you to welcome and care for your newest family member.
My goal is to bring family members closer together and strengthen relationships through the shared experiences of birth and parenthood. I believe that every family member’s experience of birth is important: mom’s dad’s, baby’s, and siblings’.
I want to support you in whatever your best birth is, with no preconceived notion of what that should look like. I am employed by you, not your hospital or midwife, and I’m typically not in your social network. Because of this, I am free to fully support you, counsel you, and educate you during your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period. I can focus solely on you and your goals for this incredible time in your life.
