“There is a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.” ~ Laura Stavoe Harm
The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth.
Congratulations on your upcoming birth and decision to investigate the benefits of hiring a doula. My name is Kerry Morrigan and I am a birth doula serving the greater Los Angeles area. Wishing you a very Bountiful Birth!
