No more relying on large groups and anecdotal evidence. Birth stories are great, but sometimes you need an experienced and educated resource for your questions. We are here to build confidence, and fill the gap between medical care and the compassionate support.
We do not offer medical advice, rather we help you find evidence based and non biased information. Your e-Doula can assist with birth planning, your baby shower registry, emotional support, breastfeeding questions, newborn basics, and more! Enjoy professional, non-judgmental support tailored to your personal needs.
The eDoula package is available virtually for prenatal support with Skype meetings, and unlimited phone, text, and email support up to 3 months postpartum.
Half-hour and hourly consultations are also available. $20 for a half hour and $40 for an hour birth consultation; additional time will be pro-rated and invoiced after the consultation. Email To Schedule or Start with 15 minutes FREE!

Facts You Need To Make an Informed Decision
Circumcision is a very personal choice that is permanent and lifelong. The American Academy of Pediatrics does not advocate circumcision for all male neonates, but strongly recommends parental education and the use of analgesics and anesthetics when circumcision is performed. All aspects and ramifications of such a procedure – including religious beliefs, social norms, and medical pros and cons -- should be considered.
