Massage Doula?

The word “doula” comes from the Greek word meaning “servant” or “Handmaiden” and is used to describe someone who assists a woman through labor. A birth doula is a professionally trained childbirth assistant who sees the mother throughout her pregnancy, labor, and after birth to provide emotional, physical, and informational support. As your Massage Doula, I also bring all my skills as a licensed massage therapist who trained & certified in massage for pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. As your Massage Doula, I also bring all my skills as a licensed massage therapist who trained & certified in massage for pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.

Initial 30 minute Doula Discovery is always FREE. During this session, my aim is to make sure we are comfortable with each other, as personal connection is very important in developing the deep trust necessary for this transformational journey.

Your Questions Answered

What are some Benefits of having a doula?

Studies show birthing people who are cared for during labor by a birth doula, compared to those receiving usual care, were:

  • LESS likely to have unnecessary interventions

  • MORE confident in their pain management choices and coping skills, being less likely to use any analgesia or anesthesia

  • IMPROVED communication with their care providers

  • MORE satisfied with or positively rate their birth experience, feeling heard and supported throughout

What will we be working on together?

We'll have several visits and check-ins over the course of your pregnancy to define and clarify your options and preferences, as well as filling your "toolbox" with skills and techniques for you and your partner to use during labor.


During your labor and birth, I will provide as much support and guidance as you (and your partner) need to bring forth your birth vision and facilitate the most positive birth and immediate postpartum experience attainable.


As you move into your postpartum recovery, we'll have a few more visits to ensure you and your family are transitioning well and have any additional resources you may need or want. I'll also be available to listen as you process your birth story and to answer questions through your 4th trimester journey.

What package customization and payment plan options are there?

All packages will have payment plan options for 2, 3, or 4 monthly payments. Payment plans will include an additional $25 convenience fee. All packages can also be customized to include additional maternity/perinatal visits. You may also add prenatal/postpartum massages to create your own Massage Doula Package.


If you are interested in a package that does not include labor/birth support (in-person or virtual), please see the Maternity Coaching Services for available non-birth packages and individual consultation appointments.

How soon should I hire a doula?

In most instances, the sooner the better. Doulas often get booked months in advance, so hire your preferred doula early!


This is especially true if you want in-person support during labor or if you might need a payment plan, which should be paid in full prior to your on call window. Unfortunately, this also means there is no discounted rate for last minute doula contracts.


Be sure to check the birth attendance availability calendar, or reach out to me to check availability for your due date.

what kind of births do you offer doula support for?

My doula support can take place wherever you choose to birth: home, birth center or hospital (virtually or in person-locally). I have supported births at all of the local community hospitals, including Evans Army Community Hospital on Ft Carson (I have post privileges on all the local military installations). I have also supported home births and births at Beginnings Birth Center.

If your estimated due date is unavailable, virtual support* may still be available. You also have the option for maternity coaching and massage services throughout your pregnancy and postpartum recovery even without doula services. 

*Virtual support will not meet the doula support requirement for Beginnings Birth Center or some home birth midwives.
