birth doula service and support
two ferns doula care
Preparing to welcome your baby takes time and mindful planning. Whether your plan is to give birth at home, in a birth center, or in a hospital, adding a doula to your care team brings multiple benefits.
As your birth doula team, you get two doulas for the price of one! You'll meet with each of us once prenatally and once postpartum, and one doula attends your labor and birth. Through our entire relationship, you benefit from the caring collaboration that we engage in on behalf of each of our shared clients.
We welcome families of all shapes and sizes, and believe that you deserve a doula at your birth.

"We met with a number of doulas before meeting Angie and Leialoha, whom we immediately felt drawn to. Both Angie and Leialoha exuded a calm, gentle demeanor, and they both seemed to be very comfortable with the process of supporting us in the birth of our baby. We are Orthodox Jews and we found Angie and Leialoha to be very open and understanding of our cultural needs.
We were in communication with Angie when my contractions started, and she joined us at the birth center for what ended up being a very quick birth. Angie had the perfect balance of being supportive and hands-on while remaining very calm and nurturing. We found her support so helpful, even though we had a midwife, assistants, and my mother there.
Toward the end of labor, there were a few minor complications and Angie made sure that I was aware of what was happening and consented to any actions the midwives were about to perform. After birth, Angie helped me start breastfeeding and took pictures for us as requested.
During the postpartum period, Angie and I kept in touch. As I struggled with breastfeeding the first few weeks Angie was very helpful and supportive as a listening ear and with suggesting different ideas/resources. We looked forward to our postpartum meetings with Angie and Leialoha; the meetings gave us a chance to touch base in person (our choice, they offered to meet virtually as well) to talk through how things were going.
I look back at my birth as a positive experience, and I feel that having Angie's support really helped make it so."
