Birth Doula and
Childbirth Education Teacher
The most memorable experience of your life deserves to be honored and cherished.
My Name is Willow, and I would be HONRORED to be your Doula! I have been working in Sonoma County as a Doula for the last 14 year, and well…. I LOVE birth!
Physical Support: That means Massage, Counter Pressure, Aromatherapy suggestions, (with DoTerra Essential oils), pressure points, suggesting position changes and movements to support labor and reduce discomfort. I can also help you to access any hospital based pain options if that is what you desire. I can get you light snacks to support your labor as long as medically allowed, I can get coffee and food for partner too if needed.
Emotional Support: That means talking, caring, listening, being PRESENT for you and your partner if needed. Encouraging you to let go, and allow your body to do what it’s meant to do.
Informational Support: That means talking through your options with you, reminding you of your birth preferences and why in the moments of birth. Being available to problem solve if those preferences need adjusting or changing. Helping you go over the benefits and risks of each intervention if offered or needed.
Doula – from the Ancient Greeks: “A woman experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after childbirth.”
