Our Doula Team


What is a doula team?

Our clients have access to two doulas during pregnancy and postpartum for questions.  All doulas work with back up doulas, with our doula team our clients are building repor with both doulas throughout pregnancy.  The average first time mom is in labor for 18 hours, with a doula team, our doulas can relieve one another during long labors, ensuring our clients have a fresh doula.  When possible and wanted by our clients, our doula team will attend labors together, surrounding our clients with a supportive birth team.

 Allison is a Tiny Love Certified birth doula who believes firmly that all women deserve to feel empowered and supported throughout their pregnancy, labor and postpartum experience. With the births of her two daughters, she felt strongly that in order to improve birth outcomes, we have to improve the quality of care and information to mothers. Through informed birth choices, trusting relationships, and continuous support, mothers (and their partners) can have a more positive birth experience. Allison works to positively impact and support any birth vision, as she has had experience in covering all types of births, medicated and non-medicated, induced and spontaneous, cesarian and VBAC, hospital and birth center.  Ina May Gaskin said, “Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life.”
