It is now widely recognized, and verified with recent studies, that choosing to add a birth doula to your birth team can yield many positive benefits. A woman’s memories of her birth experiences last a lifetime and can have powerful effects on the postpartum and early parenting experience.

Additionally, we believe that pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting can be a time of vulnerability, unknowns and of deep transformation. As such a time it deserves extra care, preparation and support from knowledgeable and caring professionals. We’ve designed our Birth Doula package to provide the highest level of this.

Stork to Cradle Birth Doulas are passionate and knowledgeable trained birth support professionals. We see our role as helping women and their partner’s have the most satisfying experience possible, as they define it, from pregnancy into parenthood.

Through unbiased education, emotional support and continuous labor support we’ll help you feel prepared, calm and confident.
