Kim S. | Postpartum Doula in Forest Grove, OR

Birthing Days

    Practice overview

    I believe our bodies instinctively know how to handle pregnancy, labor, and birth. During this time, we should learn to love and respect this amazing process. I believe that pregnancy and birth are natural processes in a woman’s life. This journey should not be feared.

    I believe that labor and birth is a beautiful and sacred life-changing events. As your doula, I have the honor to support you throughout this journey, encourage you and remind you of your strength and power, and hold space for you.

    I believe in a woman’s confidence and ability to birth. I also believe that this confidence can be shattered by those that are in her circle. Those around her can either influence it for the better or hinder it if they do not trust the process.

    I believe there are many ways to birth, and there is no wrong way to birth! You must find what is right for you. I believe a woman should feel comfortable and safe during her labor and birth. She should feel supported. As your doula, I will support your choice whether it is to labor at home, in a hospital, or at a birth center. I will honor and respect your family beliefs, preferences, communication styles, and comfort techniques, this allows me to tailor my support to fit your individual needs and desires.

    I believe every woman should be an active participant in her labor and birth experience. I believe in informed consent- giving you evidence and information about the risks and benefits of every procedure so that you can make the best decision for yourself and your baby. As your doula, I will help you gather the knowledge and resources to be better informed throughout your journey to conceive, and your pregnancy and childbirth. I will encourage you and I will remind you of your goals and values.

    It is my hope and dreams that you feel supported throughout your pregnancy, childbirth & beyond.

      I now work for Kim and her group of doulas. We make a great team together, she certainly works well with people which is a huge strength. Kim brings so much to the group with all her doula experience, kindness and genuineness.
