As a doula, I serve the Maryville, Tn and Knoxville, TN areas as a support person to a laboring mother. I in no way will try and take the place of the significant other. I am there to help her by using massage, counter pressure, and many other techniques to help alleviate pressure from contractions. I'm constantly researching all things birth and can pass that knowledge on to others.
"You are a birth servant. Do good without show or fuss. If you must take the lead, lead so that the mother is helped, yet still feel free and in charge. When the baby is born, they will rightly say, 'We did it ourselves!'"
