Physical, Emotional, & Informational Support
Evidence shows that the continuous presence of a doula in labor directly correlates with reduced rates of: induction, use of pain medication, Cesarean deliveries, and other important benefits to both the birthing person and their baby.
In addition, Doula Monica fosters and facilitates positive birth experiences for clients and couples to cherish for years to come.
Hi! I'm Monica, mother of four beautiful, bright children. I have a background in occupational therapy. And a love of family, nature and traveling.
The role of birth doula is a special one to me. I know firsthand that the way you are treated during birth has long-lasting impacts on your mind, body and emotions.
I believe that every birthing woman deserves the utmost respect and undivided attention throughout our time of working together. Mindful, I bring calming energy, an assortment of comfort measures, and a huge heart to each birth I attend.
Having personally experienced labor four different times, I know how intense yet wonderfully rewarding it can be, with the right preparation and people by your side.
Thank you for considering me to be your doula. It is an honor and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

"Monica was very supportive and provided me a lot of information related to a natural birth. She assisted me in making informed decisions regarding my personal choices of my own birth experience. She was always available when I had questions and was respectful to my opinions. When it came time to labor and delivery, Monica was there to offer as much support as necessary. Overall, I appreciated having her there through my pregnancy for emotional support and to provide me information on different breathing techniques and positions that ultimately helped make my labor and delivery more manageable."
"The minute I spoke with Monica she had such a calming presence that I instantly felt comfortable. My husband and I had a video call with Monica and asked so many questions, and with lots of patience Monica answered all of them thoroughly. The week after she came over to meet both of us face to face. And we had a lovely informative encounter where she showed us certain exercises to do in the meantime to turn my sunny side up baby into position. Monica was a great support system with continuously checking up on me and give me certain tips and send me helpful information to my email that I would need after birth. I had a specific birth plan in mind but that didn’t go the way I expected. I had a very long labor and Monica was fast with communication when I needed her to come over to my house when I was in early labor. She had so many different techniques and methods to ease the pain while I had contractions. She helped me with countless exercises to speed up labor and was very patient with me when I just wanted to give up. Fast forward to when I was 6 cm dilated, I needed her every second due to the excruciating pain and with the exercises she was helping me with I went to a quick 10 cm and was ready to push. Our Beautiful baby boy was born, but due to turning events he had to get sent to the hospital. During this scary and stressful experience Monica stayed by my side through it all. Following the days after she would continuously follow up with me and make sure to let me know she was there for me if I needed anything. Throughout this whole experience I do not regret having Monica be a part of our birth story and will always recommend her to any of my mamas wanting to do a natural birth!! Thank you Monica for all you’ve done, you are a true blessing and we couldn’t be more thankful for you!"
"My midwife gave me the contact for Monica and by our first phone call I knew she was God sent. She had a calm and peaceful demeanor and was very knowledgeable from the get go. Monica was always extremely professional and encouraging. She worked very well with my family and the birth team. Monica would frequently check up on my mental and physical status and follow up with me after each appointment. During the birth Monica remained peaceful and encouraging throughout. She spent 12 hours performing hands on techniques with my husband because I was experiencing very intense back labor and it required counter pressure the whole time. Her and my Husband were a dynamic duo, thanks to her support and her coaching my Husband. I absolutely believe that I couldn’t have done an unmedicated birth without the much needed support, knowledge, and encouragement from Monica. I strongly recommend using Monica as your doula if you want a strong, peaceful, and passionate doula by your side!!"
