These are strange and uncertain times indeed, but one thing remains steady:
Having a doula dramatically transforms and elevates your experience of birth. It has famously been said:
“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” -Dr. John Kennell
So what now with social distancing and strict limits on who can enter a hospital birthing room?
It is true now more than ever.
Virtual birth support, while not ideal, is still effective and powerful.
Doulas are especially needed in times of heightened fear and anxiety!
I am excited to share with you a powerful VIRTUAL birth support story:

These are not ideal times to be giving birth, especially not in a hospital.
Birth professionals whether you are limited in your access to your clients or not, YOU are needed more than ever.
Your presence. Your calm. Your energy. Your trust. Your LOVE.
I want you to know that you can do this and in many ways… we already are!
