DOULA SERVICES

MELISSA BUTLER

My own journey to motherhood made me aware of just how under-served our community of mothers is. I now dedicate my life to that each parent feel supported while navigating the individual path through pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. I am honored to be by your side every step of the way.

What is a doula?

A great doula is truly in service of the mother and partner, and is there to offer you support in the manner that best suits YOU! Depending on your needs, your doula CAN:

  • Offer evidence-based information
  • Support you in making informed decisions

  • Offer physical touch to ease discomfort in labor
  • Offer emotional support throughout pregnancy, labor and beyond
  • Support your birthing partner
  • And so much more

Why a doula?

Evidence shows, having continuous labor support, the laboring person has:

  • Boosted self esteem and confidence during labor
  • Improved relaxation through comfort and relaxation
