​"providing a nonjudgmental birth experience"



Calming Guidance Doula Services is passionate about providing a comforting touch, emotional support, individualized care, and calm guidance to women before, during, and immediately after childbirth.


Just as no two women are exactly alike, no two births will be identical.  However, what remains much the same in every birth experience is the woman’s desire to feel nurtured and loved and to have this momentous event in her life be as rewarding and satisfying as possible.


While one woman may want to give birth naturally with no medical interventions whatsoever, another may feel completely at peace with the idea of receiving an epidural during labor.  That is why Calming Guidance Doula Services is committed to providing a nonjudgmental birth experience for each individual woman.

“How a woman is cared for becomes more important than how she gives birth.”
— Penny Simkin, Doula and Co-Founder of DONA International
