Rhiannon N. | Doula in Buffalo, NY

    Practice overview

    I became a birth and postpartum doula in 2019. It started out as curiosity for the profession and grew to a passion I never expected to fulfill my soul. I am also working toward becoming a licensed clinical psychologist to offer further support to parents, pregnant individuals, postpartum, fertility issues, adoption, and everything in between surrounding the parenting community.

      Having a birth partner in general wildly improves birth outcomes, but I was struck by the growing body of evidence for the support of a doula specifically – someone other than your partner/co-parent who is trained in the best ways to to support you; logistically, physically, and even emotionally. I know that so much of giving birth is out of one’s control, but I at least wanted to up my chances of a both a positive experience and positive birth outcomes, especially as a first-time mother. My goal, other than to have a healthy baby of course, was to have an unmedicated birth if I could handle it. It ended up that I could not. Rhiannon’s counsel was immeasurably helpful when I could hardly think straight in the throes of labor. And after helping me reach certain decisions, such as getting the epidural, she helped me feel less anxious and empowered in those decisions. My first few days postpartum were pretty rough. It meant so much to me when Rhiannon would check in. I was allowed to complain or ask for advice in as much detail I wanted without feeling bad about it. She really gets it.I think many of us are motivated to hire doulas by fear of the medical establishment. But it’s not even so much that.

      I cannot recommend Rhiannon and her doula services enough! During my consultation, Rhiannon made me feel so comfortable, calm, and peaceful about the birthing process. She is such a smart, loving, and down-to earth person to have in your corner! I was so nervous about labor and delivery (and everything else that comes after!) But Rhiannon helped me with a birthing plan, (and postpartum plan) gave me GREAT TIPS, and most importantly, listened without judging me, my choices, or my many fears (no matter how small!) When pregnant, EVERYONE gives you advice, but Rhiannon really listens to what YOU want, and helps you to achieve that goal. I also utilized her postpartum services too, as I was very nervous about breastfeeding/pumping. She came to the hospital and gently explained how the pump worked (my little one was in the NICU) and sat with me as I went through that first time pumping. As she sat with me, we had such a wonderful conversation. She makes sure to focus on the Mama! Naturally most people are interested in the baby (and she was WONDERFUL with my little girl too) but she helped me feel like everything I was going through, and feeling was SO normal, especially when my hormones were making my emotions go up and down. It felt like having both a counselor, and a best friend by my side, at the same time. You will not regret using Rhiannon as your Doula! She will care for you, advocate for you, and most importantly, help you feel happy and calm.
