Pregnant Woman in Nature

Dragonfly Doulas Welcomes You

Birth is a life changing event, but with my nurturing support, you will learn to be comfortable with the idea of giving birth. As your Doula, you can count on me to make sure you feel confident throughout the entire process.

 

All About Me

I created Dragonfly Doulas to empower others. I have had the enjoyment of pregnancy and birth with my son, Jax, in 2007. Before I found my calling as a doula, I had the opportunity to live in China to teach English and volunteer in the local orphanages. I have been a teacher for 12 years and have taught grades 3rd through adults. I still feel the thrill of teaching every time I get to educate someone about their pregnancy or birth. I feel honored to be able to share my expertise with women and families around the Modesto area. I approach birth holistically and with empowerment. As well as physical support during labor, my role is also to act as an educator and advocate for the birthing person and their family.

Services

What I Offer

I provide you and your partner with care, understanding, information and support before and after birth. Our initial meeting will help me tailor my packages to fit your needs. Get in touch to find out more.

Prenatal Visits

I take on a limited number of clients at any one time to make sure I can give you the full care and attention you deserve. By offering two prenatal visits, my goal is to reduce any stress, allowing you to pay attention to your body and your baby. During these visits we will get to know each other, review or create your ideal birth plan, and prepare for the birth. These meetings can be in person or via Zoom, your choice.

Birthing Guidance

With my birthing guidance, I offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after birth. During labor, I will physically support the birthing person by suggesting and helping with comfort measures and position changes. I will also be emotionally supportive of the partner during this time so they feel as comfortable as possible. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and step in with anything you might need. When the time comes I will meet you at your home or at the hospital, whichever you prefer.

Postpartum Support

Pregnancy, birth and the early days of child rearing can be very scary and stressful. My role with my postpartum support is to ensure you get the best information and care possible. You will receive one postpartum visit within 2 weeks of birth. During our time together we will revisit the birth, address any needs you may have (breastfeeding, sleep, etc), and of course dote on the new baby!
