Labor Doula Services
The pregnancy and labor journey is one that is transformative. Having continuous support along the way has been shown to decrease risks of interventions and increase satisfaction with the overall birth experience. I often incorporate my knowledge of pre- and perinatal psychology into my doula work. Womb and birth imprinting have a profound effect on who we are and is something I love to educate couples on. This topic can be explored in our prenatal visits together.

“ Kiersten was by my side through all of it making sure I had enough to eat and drink, that I was as comfortable as possible, and sometimes just holding my hand. By the end of it, I felt like she was a third parent. I definitely couldn't have done it without her. She was right there when my husband or I needed her, but would also step back and let my husband be my primary support person when I only wanted him." - Sarah
