Knowledge is power! The knowledge you gain during Childbirth Education helps to empower you during your pregnancy journey. The classes will provide you with the how, when and why of childbirth. Information is also received in the areas of nutrition, breastfeeding, labor support, postpartum and infant care support.
Classes can be designed as private teachings to support comfort levels or group teachings.
My goals are to provide you with educational resources that are evidenced based.
Therefore, giving you the confidence to decide and advocate for yourself and your baby to have the best birth experience possible. To provide you with emotional support by genuinely nurturing you through the labor and delivery experience. To provide you with physical support through proper comfort techniques such as massage, position changes, birth voice empowerment and much more.
My goals are to provide you with the full support you desire during such a vulnerable time.
There is nothing like bringing your new baby home and it is truly a tender time of continued bonding. You may feel a little overwhelmed but knowing you have a doula there to support you can be a reassuring factor. As your doula, I will support you with your own physical recovery, newborn care, breastfeeding, sibling interaction, or light housekeeping if there is a need for that as well.
My desire to become a doula began after years of supporting friends and family. I seemed to always be the go to person. As an experienced mother and now grandmother, the journey to become a certified doula fully began after I completed my Graduate School studies. Going back to the research and conversations I had over the years began to inspire me all over again. I decided to launch HarmonyGrace Doula Services. Once I decided it was my path, I've moved with momentum to provide my clients with the best services possible.
Helping a new mom to discover her birth voice is such an amazing thing. It can be a quiet hum or a bold tone, but when she is ready to call her baby forth into her arms there is no stopping her. Her strength is unmatched.
Honoring the miracle of childbirth is what HarmonyGrace Doula Services is all about. Professionalism and non-judgmental support are provided. I am a support to mothers, their partners, and those close to them. The support I give to a new mom has taught me to listen with compassion and respect. A cohesive birth team benefits mom and baby.
"Studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40%, and requests for an epidural by 60%."
