Childbirth is an incredible process. Whether you’ve gone through it before or you’re preparing for your first time, it’s easy to get swept up in everyone else’s stories, opinions, perspectives, and advice. This is where Reno doulas can come in clutch, saving the day with evidence-based and judgment-free information and unwavering support that puts YOU in charge of your unique birth plan! Doulas are not medical caregivers like OB/GYNs or midwives, but they are specially trained to assist families in making informed and educated decisions about the beautiful, natural process of childbirth. Whether you deliver in a hospital or at home, with an epidural or without, your doula’s job is to support you unconditionally and to be an advocate for you and your baby.

As you prepare for your unique birth experience, here are some awesome Reno doulas to consider!

Ashley Maas Birth Services

Bright Heart Birth Services

However your baby comes to be in your arms, they’ll be by your side the entire way!

Desert & Sea doula Francesca offers a holistic approach to childbirth and discovered a passion for working as a doula as a complementary career to her Master’s thesis in spirituality and infertility. She offers a calm, unbiased presence by connecting people to practical, evidence-based information and their own inner wisdom – and she does it all with an open mind, an open heart, and a great sense of humor!
