Birth Doula support in Northern NJ
I’m an artist, doula and photographer in Northern NJ. As a doula, I believe in equipping the families I work with with the tools they need to make the best choices for themselves and their baby.
As a Doula Trainings International doula, I follow the Slow Doula Method. Which reminds me to think before I act, observe what’s happening around me and take stock in the energy that I bring to your space at all times. It is important to me to be an anchor for my families in one of their most vulnerable moments.
I will provide non-judgmental, evidence-based information and compassionate care as you move through your pregnancy and the birth of your child.
I offer pregnancy, birth story, postpartum and lifestyle newborn photography to my birth clients as an add-on service. Please inquire if interested.
I happily support families in Northern NJ (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Union Counties). I may support the NYC Metro area on a case by case basis. I also provide virtual doula services for those in other states.
As your doula I am just another part of your support team. I will not replace anyone on your support team because this is their moment as well. I will help your loved one to feel empowered to support you and play an active role in the journey. I’m their doula too!
I support ALL types of birth. It’s not my job to judge you, I believe every birthing person should have the support of a doula no matter where they choose to give birth.
I work on a sliding scale from $400-$800. Please let me know what you feel comfortable paying. If you pay full price, know that it is going to help someone else who may not be able to.
Each package includes affirmations, art, birth plan assistance and any other resources/support you may need. I also provide virtual doula services. Please inquire if interested.
Doulas are not medical professionals, and the following tasks are not performed by doulas:
They do not perform clinical tasks such as vaginal exams or fetal heart monitoring
They do not give medical advice or diagnose conditions
They do not make decisions for the client (medical or otherwise)
They do not pressure the birthing person into certain choices just because that’s what they prefer
They do not take over the role of the partner
They do not catch the baby
They do not change shifts (although some doulas may call in their back-up after 12-24 hours)
