Jeanne-Marie Paynel + birth doula


Vanessa was fortunate to have experienced working with a doula for her second birth. What a difference she made. We talked to the thoughtful, lovely and elegant Jeanne-Marie to explore why one of these professionals might be a great option for your birth, no matter where you plan on having your baby – at a hospital, a birth center, or at home. We like to think of a doula as your birth experience’s COO, the homie that will always have your back, and your bedside therapist. We talk about the role of the doula (they are not just for mom!) and how to find one that works for you.

According to Dona international, a doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to their client before, during and shortly after childbirth to help them achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
