Angela has experienced 2 un-medicated births and a wonderful cesarean birth, and so she has built a team of supportive, non-judgmental Birth & Postpartum Doulas who are happy to offer support to all parents who wish the support of a Birth Doula, no matter what kind of birth you want! We believe in providing care for all types of birth, and continue that support throughout the Postpartum months!
