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.
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.
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.
If you want to get in touch and discuss your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum support options, please fill out the form to the right or call.
