About Communitas Doula

I am a private birth doula serving families in Western North Carolina.

Communitas is the feeling of community people develop during life-changing experiences.  I embrace that communal experience as I provide care during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I get to know you and your family, your hopes and desires for your birth and postpartum, your past experiences, your likes and dislikes.  Once we’ve connected in a caring, trusting relationship, I am best able to serve you through your unique childbearing experience.

The word doula comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “female sevant”.  A birth doula’s role is to nurture and support you, using calming words and touch, natural comfort techniques, and a range of labor and birthing positions. I assist your husband or partner in supporting you, and I know that the love that you and your partner have is the primary support you will rely on during your birth. I also encourage and assist you in finding all the information you need to advocate for yourself and your family.

    Very informative and helpful site! I’m only sorry my children were born a couple or three decades too early for this service!! I would have benefitted enormously from the knowledge and care you provide.
