This is me in labor about an hour before I birthed my son at home. The photo was taken by Blueberry Sky Photography.

My DoulaBaby!

Welcome to My DoulaBaby!

My name is Romy and I am a Birth Doula serving Whittier and the surrounding Los Angeles and Orange County cities. I am dedicated to supporting and empowering  couples during the birth process. I want you to feel happy about your birth. I want you to come away with a positive birth experience. I want you to feel like you were listened to, cared for and respected. It's your birth!

What do Doulas do?

A doula supports the birthing family before, during and after the birth of the baby. A doula understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a laboring woman. She provides comfort, support and information about birth options. Doulas usually meet with the parents in the second or third trimester of the pregnancy to get acquainted. During the meeting, the doula will learn the expectations of the birth experience and may help develop a birth plan. A doula may teach breathing, relaxation and visualization techniques useful for labor. A doula will be by your side every step of the way, providing continuous labor support. Now doesn't that sound amazing? Don't you think
all laboring moms should have a DOULA?!

A few facts about why Doulas are ESSENTIAL...

Numerous clinical studies have found that a doula's presence at birth:

  • tends to result in shorter labors with fewer complications
  • reduces requests for pain medication
  • reduces requests for epidurals
  • reduces the incidence of cesareans
  • reduces the need for pitocin (a labor-inducing drug), forceps or vacuum extraction
  • reduces negative feelings about one's childbirth experience 

Significant findings!
 A doula's continuous attention to the woman's need for confidence, comfort, reassurance  and nurturing leads to a different birth experience than if the mother labored without a doula.
