Birth Doula Services

Giving birth to a baby is so much more than a physical experience. It is a key life event full of emotion and meaning.  Doulas understand this and help to enhance your experience while improving outcomes.  A birth doula works with mom and partner to carry out your birth plan and facilitate communication with your care provider.  A doula will be a continuous presence offering physical comfort measures, emotional support, and information to aid in making informed decisions. Our goal is to create a culture of care for women in the greater Chattanooga area and to increase awareness of the doula profession.
