Hudson Valley Doula Services
With you when it matters
Whether it’s your first baby, or you are growing your family, so many questions arise while preparing for birth! In the Hudson Valley, you have many options. We are fortunate to have a handful of homebirth midwives, midwives (CNM, LM, CM) practicing in hospitals and birth centers, wonderful OB/GYN doctors, Waterbirth friendly hospitals, even a hospital designated ‘Baby-Friendly’ by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative. If you’re not sure which path to take, your doula can help you explore your choices.
Your birth doula supports your birthing choices. If you’ve already taken, or plan to take, a specific childbirth course like Bradley Method, HypnoBirthing, Lamaze, or Hypnobabies, your doula works along with the philosophy and techniques associated with those classes. If a non-specific or hospital childbirth class is what you’ve chosen, your doula will tailor support to suit your needs. In both scenarios, your doula creates comfort and builds confidence, for the birthing woman and partner, to facilitate a positive birth experience.
