It has been shown that the presence and support of a doula has a very positive effect on birth outcomes. Regardless of how a birth unfolds, people who birth with doulas have a much better understanding and more positive view of their birth. Studies have shown that births with continuous doula support have up to 25% shorter labor time, 60% reduction in epidurals, 50% reduction in cesareans, 40% reduced oxytocin use, 40% reduced use of forceps, and 30% reduced use of anagesin.
If you are looking for doula support related to pregnancy loss, surrogacy, and adoption, please give me a call or send me an email. I will connect you give you the most helpful support for your circumstances.

“I learned more about childbirth from my meetings with Kim than any class or book. She helped me prepare for labor and gave me the confidence I needed to have a natural, unmedicated delivery. I felt empowered by her. During my 12 hour labor she was a constant support by my side. During early labor she helped me use the birthing ball and breathing techniques with contractions to help ease the pain. I couldn't have planned a better birth! “ ~Tara (Newburg, OR)
“Although I didn't have the labor or birth I had planned I felt Kim accommodated my needs as they came about.” ~Jessica (Hillsboro, OR)
