Doula Support in Brea, CA

Sleeping baby Brea doula

A doula can...

  • Help you feel more surrounded with support before and during birth (this goes for moms as well as dads and partners!)

  • Answer questions and help you locate additional resources

  • Help you prepare for your birth and postpartum experience

  • Provide comfort measures, coping techniques, encouragement, and guidance during labor and birth

  • Promote rest, recovery, and bonding with your baby in the weeks after birth

  • Help with breastfeeding and answer baby care questions

  • Help you understand what is normal and identify possible areas of concern

  • Brainstorm with you to help come up with creative solutions to challenges you may face

  • ... and so much more!

You made a believer out of me! When my daughter told me she was hiring a doula, I didn’t understand how it would help. But after seeing you both work with her throughout her 2-day labor, I can’t imagine how people do this without wonderful people like you by their sides!
