Doulas provide continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the birthing family before, during and immediately after the birth.  The goal is to support the birthing person and increase the family’s emotional capacity to birth beautifully in their very own way.  

Whether you’re planning a non-medicated birth or to receive an epidural, a home birth, birthing at a hospital or birth center, having a planned c-section, hoping to avoid a c-section or if you have no specific plan at all, we can help you. While birth doulas are most often used in non-medicated births, consider our support for any way that you hope to birth.


We also love to help families plan their postpartum life to ensure the transition is as manageable as possible for each member.  Bringing home a baby (or babies) is a special undertaking.  We can help you enjoy the time by keeping you focused on the moment, remind you of your options and ushering in practices and habits that encourage a healthy recovery.

Erin Clark

Erin has always loved the birth experience and attended several to support her friends during childbirth.  Four years ago, she decided to make it her career by becoming a doula. 
Erin wants to educate birthing people and help them understand they have choices and options.  
What is good for the doctor may not be ideal for the person giving birth. And that’s okay! Erin said, ” I am fearful for the people going into birthing spaces without doulas or without the education about the things you are able to do during birth.” She wants each pregnant person to go into the birth experience feeling empowered instead of fearful.
