As your Doula...
I will provide emotional & physical support before, during, and after the birth of your baby. We will have prenatal appointments to visit and go over ways to prepare your mind and body. These topics include healthy nutrition ideas, strategies to stay active, ways to communicate with care providers, relaxation techniques, tools to power through labor, and what you may expect during labor and the postpartum period. I'll then be with you on arrival day (or night!) of your little one to provide hands-on support and comfort measures, and will come to you for a postpartum visit!
I service Medina, Frio, Atascosa, Uvalde, Bandera, and Bexar counties. I am pretty centrally located to all of these rural areas and am working to bring great births to South Texas!
