Doula Services

Tina Gibbs – Doula

Birth support

How do you feel about your pregnancy? Your birth? How would you like to feel? What is most important to you for your birth? ​

Hiring a doula is an investment in your mental and physical health. An investment in your lasting memories of the birth of your baby. Whether it is your first or fifths baby, each birth experience will stay with you for as long as you live. Each birth matters, you matter, memories matter!
