Shanda Burke - Labor Doula & Postpartum Support for your Pregnancy Care
My name is Shanda, and I am a labor doula who also provides postpartum support as part of pregnancy care. I am the mother of 5 sweet babies myself. 1 hospital birth and 4 home births. Birth can and should be an amazing experience. My goal is to help make your birth a beautiful experience.
So many choices! Part of my goal for your pregnancy care as your labor doula or with postpartum support is to help you & your partner make fully informed choices on the many decisions you will encounter during your pregnancy, birth & postpartum with evidence based information.
I will be there to support you and your family throughout labor and birth as your labor doula or postpartum support. For your pregnancy care I will fully support your vision for labor and birth, no matter your decisions or how you give birth. This is YOUR birth, let's make it beautiful.
I will provide
In a 2012 survey that took place in the U.S., 6% of birthing people said they used a doula during childbirth (Declerq et al., 2013), up from 3% in a 2006 national survey (Declerq et al., 2007). Of those people who did not have a doula but understood what they were, 27% would have liked to have a doula.
Being your labor doula Includes: two prenatal visits / support during labor and birth / one postnatal visit as part of your pregnancy care.
I would love to be your labor doula or provide postpartum support as part of your pregnancy care. We will schedule a time to meet each other to see if I am a good fit for you. There is no charge for this, and no obligation to go further.
