All of the decisions that have to be made during pregancy can be overwhelming. A doula can help the mother have a more fulfilling birth experience by providing emotional and physical non-stop support during the labor process. We act as the mother’s advocate. We offer reassurance and support to enhance the mother’s natural laboring abilities. A doula does not replace the mother’s partner, but will provide support to them.
Every mother deserves to have a doula or support person present as she goes through this wonderful, but possibly scary event. One of the best things a doula can do is to help alleviate the fear factor and lead the mother through a peaceful birth of her baby. I will be there through the whole birth to assist the mother to have the best birth experience possible. I will be supportive of the decisions you make and will not pass judgment on your choices. This is your birth and I will empower you (and your partner) to be the best you can possibly be.

I am Rhonda McKim CD(DONA). I am a 50-something mom of three wonderful young adult sons. They all live within a few hours, but of course I don’t see them as often as I’d like to. I started my doula training in February of 2018 after deciding I wanted to fill the last of my working years with something more fulfilling than doing accounting work. Over the years, I’ve worked in the world of banking, finance, marketing and entrepreneurship. I have also been involved with volunteer work including young children and mothers that are seeking a better life for them and their families. I feel that I have great capacity as a caregiver, so a doula fills that role well.
