The word doula is an ancient Greek word meaning "woman's servant".
Here at Beloved Roots Birth, that is our very philosophy.
We "mother the mother", a critical component that studies have shown to create better birth outcomes.
When a woman feels nurtured, loved and respected during her birth, she is more likely to not only have a smoother, shorter labor, but also a more positive overall birth experience.
We believe birth is a sacred event, no matter which way you envision it to happen.
While we recognize birth as a natural, physiological process, we also acknowledge that ALL birth is birth, and we support them all.
We believe education in all options will create the knowledge needed to make evidence based decisions that are best for you and your family.
Above all, we are here to assist women in having a safe and satisfying pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum period, as they define it.
