An FCD Birth Doula can offer support in whatever setting you choose to labor and will honor the choices you make for your pregnancy, labor, delivery, and infant care.

Once you hire your Birth Doula, expect to become the VIP during your time together, especially during your labor. She will offer both hands-on support and hands-off. Your Birth Doula has the uncanny ability to observe when each is needed and act accordingly, responding with compassion and respect to every request you make during this time.
