birth support

 

Birth is the most transformational journey of an expectant parent's life. It catapults us into uncharted territory forcing us to let go of our familiar structures and trust our instincts, but that's a lot easier said than done. ​There are many reasons someone might integrate a birth doula into their birth team. As a professionally trained doula with DONA International, Brooke is qualified to help you feel supported, cared for, and prepared as you approach the birth of your little one. She will look after your emotional journey, something no one else on your care team is focusing on.

getting you mentally and physically prepared for childbirth & beyond

Midwives and doctors will be present throughout labor to ensure the safe passage of you and your baby. However, because they often have more than one patient at a time and have other responsibilities, they might not be able to be there the entire time to offer the kind of familiar supportive presence you deserve.  This is the role of a doula.  Her presence can be invaluable.

Brooke will assist you in making informed decisions about your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience by providing evidence-based information and encourage you to find and use your voice during this vulnerable time. She will provide you with clear and objective information to help you make sense of any confusion you may be feeling.

 

coupled with her warm, grounded, and authentic nature, you will feel more confident and calm with her by your side. And when you feel calm... so will your body and baby, allowing them to be born just the way s/he was meant to.

During labor, Brooke's role is to be present with you, walking your journey of birth alongside you. Think of a doula like a birth coach! She can assist with non-clinical tips and tricks to aid labor progress, from comfort measures and maintaining a pain-coping mindset for labors without pain medication, physical and emotional support for people laboring with an epidural, emotional and informational preparation for cesarean births, and everything in between. 

No matter your choices for birth, Brooke is there without judgment to walk alongside you as you bring your baby into your arms. She will provide in-person support during your labor, birth, and the first hour or two of bonding with your little one, supporting births in hospitals, birth centers, and at home.

 

this is your birth, your decision.
