At Touch of Life Massage and Doula Care, my mission is to provide a supportive and safe environment for a woman to give birth. I agree to give unconditional emotional, physical, and informational support to every woman regardless of her choices for childbirth. I hope to enable our doula-supported families a constant calming presence before, during, and after labor. As a professional certified doula, I want every family to experience the birth process as a safe, empowering and memorable rite of passage.
Most doula-client relationships begin a few months before the baby is due. During this period, they develop a relationship where the mother feels free to ask questions, express her fears and concerns, and takes an active role in creating a birth plan. As a doula, I make myself available to the mother by phone 24/7 in order to respond to her questions or explain any development that might arise during the natural course of the pregnancy. Doulas do not provide any type of medical care; however, they are knowledgeable in many medical aspects of labor and delivery. Consequently, they can help their clients gain a better understanding of the procedures and possible complications of pregnancy and/or delivery.
At Touch of Life Massage and Doula Care, I am able to offer my clients the added advantage and benefit of prenatal massage throughout their pregnancy as well as postnatal massage after their newborn has arrived. Using this ongoing relationship between the mother-to-be, her partner, and myself, I can offer a great number of advantages to assist with the process of dealing with your pregnancy, and delivering a newborn in the most educated and comfortable way possible. This symbiosis between the new family and their therapist gives the much needed support that many families need to make sure they have the most comfortable experience possible for not only labor and delivery, but for the entire pregnancy and beyond.
Please do not forget the partner in this relationship as well. I am here to offer support to the mother of course, but also to her partner. This includes answering any questions they may have, and offer the benefits of massage to them as well to help with any added stresses that naturally accompany not only the pregnancy, but also the emotional difficulties that they are dealing with during this one of a kind, incredible life experience.
Remember, this will be the most incredible experience of your lives! Do not let the emotional bumps that occur along the way be a hindrance to enjoying this experience of bringing new life into the world. I am here for your needs, to answer your questions, and to make this time the best it can be, for you, for your partner and for your new baby!
