I’ve also been a doula for hundreds of families that have taken childbirth classes in Kansas City.

Why We Foster Relationships With Your Doctor, Midwife, and Nurse

It is true that as a doula we work for you, and not your doctor, midwife, nurse, hospital or birthing center. You sit down with the doula, get to know her, decide whether you can be completely open and uninhibited in front of her. You begin picturing the doula at your birth.
