Fact: Birth is unpredictable

It’s impossible to know exactly how it will all play out, so the anticipation of giving birth for the first time (or witnessing your partner give birth for the first time) can be overwhelming. How are you supposed to plan for something you haven’t done before? How do you prepare for an event when you don’t know what day it’s happening, how long it’s going to last, or what it’s going to be like?

Answer: You get help

Throughout your pregnancy and birth the expert you can turn to for answers to your questions, for reassurance that things are normal, for guidance when it gets overwhelming, for physical comfort when you’re in pain, for emotional support when you need it most, and for help learning how you and your partner can work together to have a positive birth experience is called:

A Doula

With a professional birth doula by your side, there’s no need to worry about remembering every single thing from childbirth class, if your partner is going to be able to provide the kind of support you need through labor, or even if you’re going to know when it’s time to head to the hospital or not.

This is what we do

When you add Little Apple Doulas to your birth plans, you’re adding a team of knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate, and encouraging women who have helped over one hundred other parents navigate this very same path before.

We know birth. Your partner knows you.

Together, we’ll make an impeccable coach/cheerleader combination to help you get through any of the twists and turns labor and birth might bring!

Our goal is to work cohesively with all members of your care team, no matter how you choose to give birth, in order to help you have a healthy and happy birth. We can help ease your doubts, fears, worries, and hesitations so you feel prepared, informed, strong, confident, and empowered. After all, you’re going to remember this day for the rest of your life. Shouldn’t it be something to treasure instead of fear? You don't have to go it alone.

we’ve got your back.

My doula helped to keep me calm, collected, and focused on my goal the entire time. I felt well supported thoughout my entire pregnancy and that support continued even after my baby was born. My doula reached out and checked in on me multiple times after delivery and even after we were home and settled. I would recommend these professionals to every expectant family, no matter what type of birth you have in mind!
