Self Directed Birth Worker Doula Herb Lover
“We cannot begin to thank you enough for all that you did for our family throughout our pregnancy and labor. You helped bring our sweetest gift into the world in a peaceful and natural way, as a first time mom, it meant the world for me to be prepared for and to have the birth experience that I wanted. Without you, it would not have been possible…. Not only did you ease my worries, but you helped [my husband] to get comfortable in his role as a father…” ~Brie
Why Hire a Doula??
Experience and familiarity with birth. As a doula I rely not only on my education but also my years of experience. Having attended many births I know what is normal during pregnancy, labor and birth and can reassure and prepare you and your family for the birth you want.
Continuous care. Because there is no such thing as a due date, the staff, doctor or midwife you are familiar with may not be there when you are giving birth. As your doula I would be present through labor, birth and immediate postpartum. A doula’s presence is essential for you to have the birth experience you planned and envisioned.
Coping techniques and comfort measures. Unfortunately many of us have been conditioned to fear birth. Labor and birth are unique experiences that are not realistically portrayed in the media. As your doula I work to keep you grounded and calm as I share coping techniques to help you progress through labor. I would also make suggestions for your partner or family to guide you through and between contractions.
Your doula works only for you. Hospital staff cannot stay by your side during labor since they have other patients and responsibilities, your family may be overwhelmed and need rest but as your doula I have the knowledge, time and energy to guide you throughout labor and birth.
A woman in labor is at her most vulnerable state. As your doula, I do not speak for you but I will make sure your needs and wishes are prioritized and not overlooked.
Clinical studies show that having a doula :
Reduces the risk of C-section
Reduces the length of labor
Reduces the need of induction, forceps and other interventions
Reduces use of any medication for pain relief and
Decreases risk of newborn being admitted to special care

“I highly recommend Moji’s doula services to anyone that is expecting. She brings to your pregnancy a calmness and focus that is hard to find on your own. She strives to help you work through your fears and desires and through meditation and deep relaxation help you achieve a very positive perspective on your pregnancy and pending labor and delivery. She is also helpful with siblings and making recommendations to help them adjust to a new family member. Moji also values health and is quick to provide homeopathic remedies for typical pregnancy discomforts. She was critical in helping me work through fears from a previous labor and delivery and helping fully prepare myself to bring my most recent daughter into this world. I feel very fortunate to have had her by my side during labor and delivery.”
