Meet Samantha

Samantha founded My Meadville Doula in order to pursue her passion for pregnancy, birth, & family support. It is her priority to make sure that every family feels supported, no matter their parenting style. She loves to spend her down time with her family, or reading a good book.

What is a Certified Labor Doula?

A certified labor, or birth, doula is a trained professional that has completed their certification process & assists families during pregnancy, labor, birth, and the immediate postpartum. They offer continuous physical, emotional, & educational support, tailored to your needs. They work alongside partners & medical professionals to help you to have a positive birth experience. There is no correct way to give birth! Whatever choice you think is best, your doula is here to support you.

Your Birth Means Your Choices!

It is your birth & your experience! You deserve to feel supported. Your doula will help you to design a birth plan that reflects your wishes, and remain by your side even if things don't go as planned.

What Does a Labor Doula Do?

A labor doula supports the mother and family throughout labor by offering services such as: birth plan preparation, pain relief techniques, labor massage, relaxation techniques, effective positioning for labor and birth, acupressure points, visualization techniques, breastfeeding support, hydrotherapy and more. It is all about what you need in the moment and your preferences. Some people prefer a more hands-on approach, while others are more interested in education or emotional support. Whatever support you choose, you will feel confident in your ability to labor.

What Does a Postpartum Doula Do?

A postpartum doula offers educational support, emotional support, & most importantly nonjudgmental support after the birth of your baby. They focus on the mother’s recovery after labor & the baby’s and family's adjustment, & can assist with whatever you need most. Perhaps you would like a hand with help around the house, or maybe you would like someone to tend to your baby while you take a much-needed break. Your doula will offer support where you need it.
