Birth is about making mothers: strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” Barbara Katz-Rothman

 

 

What Do you Get When You Choose Kali As Your Doula?

 

 An Experienced Doula

I have served pregnant women for over six years, and I have attended over 65 births. I have experience serving mamas who have had fertility issues, mood disorders, VBACS, inductions, cesareans, malpositioned babies, waterbirths, very short labors, very long labors…all sorts of birth situations!

A Supportive Doula

My role as your doula is support you in your pregnancy and birthing and postpartum time no matter your choices. While many of my clients do aim for natural births, I do support women who chose to get epidural or other pharmaceutical pain medications. I support women who choose inductions, cesareans, waterbirths, and VBACs; I support breastfeeding and formula feeding moms, hospital or homebirth clients. I can offer assistance if you need help understanding both the pros and cons of each scenario, but I will stand by you in whatever decisions you make.

 An Exclusive Doula

Although I have good relationships with many area midwives and OBs, I work only for you and your partner, not for an OB, midwife, or hospital. This insures that I have YOUR best interests in mind. If your birthing location changes (such as a transport from home to hospital) I go with you; you are not left alone. I only take a few clients a month  so that I have to best chance of attending your birth.

 A Reliable Doula

I do provide a back-up doula who I trust and know personally and professionally. I will get ready to leave when you tell me to come. I won’t leave you alone unless you ask me
