COVID-19 AND THE CHANGING VIEW OF SUPPORT

image181

Support in these challenging times and connection however we can....

As limitations on person-to-person interactions escalate and everyone is trying to stay safe and healthy, support for  labor, birth, and postpartum has changed as well.  Doula support is known for its "human touch". But in our current climate, that is difficult, and in most circumstances, not possible. Thankfully,  technology will allow me to continue to offer emotional and information support virtually. Please consider some of these options available via Skype or Zoom.
