Local and Online Resources

There is a LOT of information out there about pregnancy and birth. You want to make sure you are getting evidence based, peer reviewed, up-to-date information. Your family’s health depends on it!
There are a few listed here, but as your Doula, I can provide many more! I have attended births with a variety of care providers at 11 hospitals MD/DC/VA, as well as birth center and home births. I am involved in the local and online birth community, and if I don’t know the answer to your question, I can find someone who will!
