Laguna Hills doula crawling baby

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 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!

After the experience I had with Marlee and Megan, I cannot even begin to list all of the invaluable things that they do.

We have training through Childbirth InternationalStillbirthday, and we are Advanced Birthing From Within mentors, so you'll find we may approach the experiences of welcoming a baby a bit differently than other birth professionals in the area.

We strive to offer nonjudgmental support to everyone we work with, offering a safe space to experience the range of emotions this time of life can bring. We honor your journey into parenthood as a rite of passage, not just a medical event.
