The Art and Science of Touch

My travels with massage led me to learn about midwifery – the birthing of babies.
I found my skills most useful in becoming a Doula – a birthing assistant.
The meaning of the word Doula is “to be with woman”.
A proud phase/ word, which holds a strength that reaches and touches lives, families and impacts the memories and souls of all those involved.
I am so honored to call myself a Doula.
The presence and responsibility that I uphold is one of honor and respect.
The compassion that is extended in being a labor support person is one that never stops learning and growing with each birth and story.
Doulas are the link of knowledge that supports midwives, nurses and medical practitioners as well as families and pregnant mothers, fathers and child.
There is a great amount of responsibility in the care of life especially in these transformational times.
By using massage therapy along with conscious bonding skills, the mother is supported and is likely to advance with labor and have a positive birth.
