Comprehensive, Artisanal Doula Packages for the Family Who Wants the Very Best:
All Center Song Doula Packages include childbirth education.
After attending my first three births, I became deeply passionate about prenatal birth preparation and started training as a childbirth educator. I often tell my clients that a seasoned birth professional can tell who's done relaxation practice, mindfulness and/or hypnosis training in pregnancy as soon as they walk into the birthing room where someone is in active labor. Evidence-based childbirth education PLUS added brain training for birth make a huge, positive impact. Now ALL my doula clients have the opportunity to learn and practice these skills, and apply this knowledge on "the big day."
