Community Resources

As a doula it is my goal to be a bridge builder. I have done all the digging and found as many local resources and referrals for you as I possibly can. From other doulas, midwives, educators, doctors, specialty providers, and even help with event planning. Helping build the bridge of communication to who ever you may need. I have also included links to helpful websites and a list of books to further your birth education. My goal is to help you feel as educated, informed, and confident as possible. When you don’t have to spend half your time researching these things you are able to spend the time you do have actually being productive. If there is a specific subject or need not mentioned in this list PLEASE contact me and I will help point you in the right direction. Sign up below for a downloadable version of this.
