Nothing is more important. The birth of your child should be an experience you will always cherish. We are committed to working with you to ensure that your birth experience will be positive, loving and empowering. Birth is a natural process and a bodily expression of health. The anticipation of your child's birth is naturally rich and complex. We would be pleased to support you in a beautiful birth.
We have attended births in Lawrence, Overland Park, and Topeka, Kansas. We have attended births in hospitals in all of those cities, at the Topeka Birth & Women's Center, the New Birth Company in Overland Park, and we have attended at home births. We have experience assisting mothers birthing in the Bradley and HypnoBirthing methods, although typically we help mothers find their own method, the one that is right for them.
Our birth services are delivered according to one of two models: "traditional" or on-call. With our traditional service, you will meet a doula and form a birth plan in advance of your due date. Our on-call doula service is available for clients who did not realize until late in their pregnancy, or even until they were in labor, that they needed a doula.
We also offer in-home breastfeeding help. Please see our Breastfeeding Support page for a complete description of this service.
We have tried to provide plenty of useful information on our Web site but if you have any questions that are not answered here please do not hesitate to contact us for more information or to arrange an interview.
