What is a Doula?
The word doula which comes from ancient Greek, today refers to a woman trained and experienced in childbirth.

The wisdom and emotional support of experienced women at birth is an ancient tradition.

|"I used Laurie's doula services for the birth of our first baby Nathanial. She was very sensitive and helpful every step of the way, especially during labor and delivery. Laurie respected our wishes and assisted me in writing my very own birth plan. Her expertise, encouragement, and helpfulness was valuable even after the baby was born. I recommend her to anyone who has a need for womanly nurturing assitance during labor and delivery. My husband and I both agree she was worth every cent."
