Labor Doula Support
Support for your birth
Feel confident heading into your labor and birth, knowing that your dedicated birth team is behind your vision for a positive, low-intervention birth. Arielle's Birth Doula packages support you as you develop your birth vision, work with your mind and body to trust the process, and gain a complete understanding of the medical solutions that may support you in achieving your birth goals.
Working together, we prepare you not only for a positive labor and birth, but also getting the best start at your postpartum recovery. By focusing on your needs, for this birth, you'll have the experience of a lifetime, and a doula who's got your back.
BIRTH DOULA SUPPORT DESIGNED TO MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR BIRTH JOURNEY,
WITH SUPPORT IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES
With a family centered approach, Arielle will walk with you every step of the way, offering suggestions, encouragement, information and referrals as you prepare for your birth. Explore and uncover your truest needs for this birth with Birth Doula support.
During our Prenatal Sessions, Arielle will guide the conversations you and your partner or family members are having, helping you uncover the possibility this experience holds for you. She will walk you through the physiological process of birth and the intricate interplay of hormones. Building on your own instincts and inner wisdom, Prenatal Sessions will encourage trust in your birthing ability.
And with trust, comes the knowledge that hard work is ahead. So, together you will explore coping skills, for you and your partner, build your coping toolbox and determine your coping style. Finally, with a focus on your birth preferences, you will discuss how medical interventions can be solutions, helping you achieve your birth goals.

Arielle offered fabulous support during our prenatal, birth, and postpartum periods. I don't know if I could have done it without her! Her calm guidance and gentle words gave me strength, confidence, and the tools for a successful VBAC!
Renee, birthed 2023
We were so lucky to work with Arielle as our birth doula! Throughout my pregnancy, she provided evidence-based information that allowed us to make informed decisions regarding our birth preferences. During labor, she was an amazing source of strength, calm and focus for me and my partner. Thank you Arielle!

Arielle was an indispensable presence during the birth of my son. She helped me remain as calm as I could be and assisted me with exercises to help with the pain since I wanted to delay getting an epidural. Prior to the birth and after, she checked in to see how I was doing and was quick to respond to any questions I had. I highly recommend hiring her as your birth doula!
