A Doula is a trained birth professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and after childbirth.
I believe that every single person has the right to a fully supported and well informed birth. I support all birth choices and advocate for respectful care and bodily autonomy. I have attended over 100 births and have built my practice around evidence based methods and helping women to have strong, confident, powerful births. I believe birth is amazing and, that regardless of your birth choices, you should be surrounded by people who understand your goals and want to help you accomplish those goals in the safest and healthiest way possible.
To provide birthing families with a full spectrum of support I have received training in Placenta Encapsulation, Bengkung Belly Binding, Yoni Steaming, and Lactation in addition to my training as a Doula.
“Amber is amazing, plain and simple! I had a lot of fear and anxiety about what my birth experience would be after having such a difficult time with my first child, but having her there to assist, distract and guide me through everything made all of the difference in the world. There’s no better feeling starting your parenting journey than to feel strong and empowered, and she was able to give that to me.“
“Suffice to say that as we were interviewing doulas, Amber fit all these points that I was looking for. Additionally, when the time came, she OVER-performed in this regard. She was never more than 30 minutes away, regardless of the time. Allie and I constantly had questions, and she had answers. Most importantly, she assisted me in being proactively engaged in the care of Allie.
I'm not really a "5-star A+" kind of guy, but I cannot recommend Artemis Doula and Birth Services enough. Amber really exceeded my expectations.”
“Amber was a blessing.. she empowered me to make my own decisions and not be pressured.. she enabled my husband to be the best support person. She also got some amazing pictures for us and she was there for us afterwards when we were overwhelmed. She was a huge comfort when I called her a few days later when I was worried about everything too.
She was amazing. I know I wouldn't have had such a positive experience without her.“
"Amber was a rock for both my husband and I, providing support we didn't even know we needed. She helped before hand with exercises, nutrition, reality checks, and a friendly smile...
Her help after the birth was critical to my comfort and emotional recovery.
Hands down, hiring a doula was the best financial decision we made for our birth."
