What is a Doula
A Birth Doula is a birth coach and assistant. Doulas are trained birth professionals that offer education, emotional support, and physical support during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. Each doula's expertise varies based on their unique combination of skills, trainings, experiences and strategies.
My practice is unique in that I offer a comprehensive birthing package that takes the doula position to a whole new level. My unique blend of Maternity Functional Medicine, Acupuncture & Doula support is your clear path to a Functional Childbirth Experience.
The Functional Childbirth Package
Nutrition is important for the success of your pregnancy. Much of prenatal nutrition is focused on the growing fetus, and not on the ever changing mother and her body's ability to function properly. That is where my knowledge is different. I focus on the mother, her nutrition, and her body function. I believe that if the mother is healthy the baby will be healthy.
During my birth preparation appointments we discuss, in depth, the role nutrition plays in the function of the mother's body as specific and crucial times in pregnancy. I will guide you through each phase of pregnancy by providing individual and gestational nutrition advice, addressing symptoms and complications that can be corrected with nutrition, and provide necessary lab work and analysis throughout. My care does not take the place of your midwife or physicians care.
