education

We believe that preparation through education and practice are fundamental to having a beautiful, empowering birth. We have also seen firsthand the value of private coaching and mentoring from your doula, as it helps ensure you are able to truly understand and apply the information you are learning. This is why we strongly recommend our doula clients take education classes with us. It also helps us get to know one another on a deeper level; a connection that is invaluable at your birth.

The key to having your dream birth is education.
