Blessed Beginnings Doula Care

Birth is a process with a divine purpose...

Meet the doula

Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to Blessed Beginnings Doula Care! I am a DONA International certified doula serving El Dorado and the surrounding counties. As I set out to provide advocacy to pregnant women and their partners and/or family members, my hope is that with labor support, encouragement, and the knowledge that I have been given, I might be able to assist you in the blessed beginning of your child.

"Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is placed in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse into the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others' hands the sacred and holy trust given to her."

What is a Doula?

The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.
