labor doula service
My intention as a doula is to help you find your own way with birth and to help midwife the family into being. As needed, I can contribute my skills as a massage therapist and integrate aspects of yoga and meditation.
We start with a meet and greet to see if we all feel comfortable about working together. About a month before your due date, we will have a more extensive prenatal visit to talk about your visions of the birth and begin to understand the depths of your resources.
At the birth, I will be there to serve your needs in the moment and offer emotional support, and create an environment of safety, so that your birth can unfold with awareness and alignment with your nature. I will stay with you for a couple of hours after the birth to help with breastfeeding. At a postpartum visit, I will come to admire your baby and help process your birth experience.
After attending over 160 births in hospital settings, birth centers, and homes, I have seen the unique ways women access their own powers on the journey toward motherhood.
Mia Borgatta saw me through my two pregnancies AND births! I was so lucky to have had Mia's guidance throughout. She held my hand in a compassionate and present way through each stage. The support of the yoga classes and tailored instruction to my specific conditions was invaluable to my pre- and postpartum experience as well as the process of labor itself. I was lucky to have natural vaginal births each time and I owe this good fortune to Mia and the preparative support she gave me in every way, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. It felt like the support Mia gave to us was like plugging into some timeless wisdom garnered from her tiered experience, not only from the many births she has aided in the past few decades but also she has a gift that transcends this and she can tap into the ancient wisdom of the goddess and the cultures that birthed in a sacred and powerful way. This fearless conquering spirit ruled both my pregnancies and i am happy to say gave us these two little guys now who have enriched our lives no end. Thank-you Mia!
