Sometimes we want additional friends or family members to join us for our births. Other times, we’d prefer birth to be a more private event. Margaret, one of our +Shining Light Doulas, shares a story of an unintended guest and how she gracefully managed a challenging situation and turned it around to be a positive experience for mom, dad and the unintended guest.

Come join us for this free event and see if our doulas are a good fit for your birth. You’ll be able to meet and mingle with our seven doulas and get a taste of their personalities while noshing on some light refreshments.

This is an open house event, so bring your friends and family and spread the word! Learn more about our Doula services on our website. Partners and children are welcome to attend.

Shining Light Doula, Amanda Guntrum, has a story for you. She tells us of a recent birth she attended and how profoundly empowered both mom and dad felt due to her calm presence.

When a first birth doesn't go as planned and a mother feels hurt, lost and afraid, she turns to her doula, Anneliese, for mentoring and support. Through her compassion and attentiveness, Anneliese lights this mother's path so her fears are dissolved and she can move forward with grace and confidence to her upcoming birth with her second child.

Sometimes things don't go they way we plan. However, when we have good support during birth from our partners, our care providers and our doulas we can still have a confident experience. Melanie tells us a story of just such a birth.
