A doula does not empower you. She simply encourages, comforts, and honors you as you use the power you had all along.

Hello! My name is JoLynne, but most of my friends call me Joey. If you'd like to read my bio, you can do so hereRight now, I want to share with you why I would love, and be honored, to be your doula.

 

Each laboring woman and family are so unique in how they choose to give birth. What is important to you, your goals, your beliefs, and many other things play a huge role in what that vision looks like to you. In the spirit of that, I support you according to how you see me and my services fitting into your birth plan. This means I do not bring my own plan or agenda, but instead help you find your options so that you can choose what works best for you and your family. The birth of your baby is so much more than just "healthy mom and healthy baby", it's about "How will you remember this experience?" You deserve to leave your birth feeling empowered and supported and having made beautiful memories of your birth that brought your family closer together.

 

Initial consultations for doula services are FREE. So lets sit down, chat about your birth goals over coffee or tea so you and your partner have the opportunity to meet me and get all your questions answered. For more information on the evidence of doulas, check out the Evidence Based Birth® article on the "Evidence for Doulas". You can also read more about what a doula does and does not do here.

"I can't imagine how my labor would have been without Joey! She made me feel like a friend the moment we met and was so warm and kind I knew we had to hire her. Nothing goes as you plan and my labor was definitely included in that but every change in our plan was MY decision and thanks to Joey I felt confident that it was what was best for me. With over a month of false labor it was a great relief being able to call someone when things were getting difficult or when I was scared. I'm so thankful to have had her with us for such a special and incredible day." ~Summer H.
