Studies have shown that doula care leads to shorter labors, decreased rates of cesarean sections, and decreased rates of postpartum depression.
Doulas provide physical and emotional support to parents before, during, and after labor.
Doulas can help you feel more confident in your ability
to give birth and during postpartum time.
A doula is a constant support system who knows your preferences and can offer suggestions when needed.
Having a doula present at your birth lowers stress levels and promotes relaxation.

"I had Seanna as my doula through my pregnancy and postpartum period. She was warm and kind and very knowledgeable about all the challenges I had. She was able to give me options and suggestions for how to go through labor and when it turned out I was having a c-section she was able to talk me through the anxiety I had. During my postpartum if I had any issues or questions she was a text or call away no matter the time and provided me with all the support and reassurance that I needed. Having Seanna as my doula was the best decision I made for my pregnancy and postpartum journey!”
"Seanna was absolutely amazing, honestly I was hesitant to have a doula and mainly agreed because my husband wanted it. But the knowledge Seanna gave me, not to mention the overwhelming support she gave during and after my labour was more I could have ever wished for. She was always there to answer my 500 questions and advocated for me when I couldn't. It was a pleasure having Seanna there for the birth of my first child and I'll have her there for the rest.”
We, 2 brand new fathers could not have wished for a better doula than Seanna. Seanna we are not going to write about you in this reference, we are writing this reference to you.
We Stefan, Max and of course our sweet little son Joep, would like to thank you very much for assisting us in the first 3 days that we were home as a family.
From the first moment you came to our "home", we knew immediately, this is a world match.
The peace you radiate is heartwarming, as is your heartfelt advice, all given from you as a person, your experience as a doula, and most importantly, from your mother heart.
As you are accustomed to say, An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.
A visit from Seanna a day, keeps the worries away.
Thank you for wanting to support us.
-Big hug from Max, Stefan and OF COURSE baby JOEP!!!
