Welcome to Divine River of Birth!

     I am here to support women during the second and third trimester, labor and delivery, and the weeks after the birth of their babies. I am a certified birth doula. serving the Texas Hill Country and Austin areas. I received my certification through Tiny Love Doulas. 

     What is a doula and what does she do? Also known as a birth coach, she is a walking, talking, birth ball carrying, rebozo wearing abundance of birth information! She prepares pregnant women and their partner for birth and parenting by providing emotional, physical, and educational support during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. She helps the laboring woman communicate her preferences for her care and be confident in the decisions she makes. She ensures the pregnant mother's choices are being heard and respected. She empowers the mother with encouragement and a positive environment while securing the mother's safety as a priority. She ensures the birth plan is not forgotten and that it goes as close to plan as a possible. She is knowledgeable on different methods to manage pain naturally during a drug-free birth. She is LOVE in action!

    

      "Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers, who trust themselves and know their inner strength."

                    -Barbara Katz Rothman
