Doula Support in Whittier, CA

Smiling baby Whittier 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 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!

Having a baby has been the most earth shattering, humbling, and overwhelming experience in our lives. Megan and Marlee’s presence throughout was always comforting, calming, and reassuring. To us, they were invaluable.
