Caring, Compassionate, & Professional Support
Hi, I'm Staci, the Statesville Doula, and I am so happy you're here. I understand that pregnancy comes with many different emotions; excitement, fear, happiness, joy, nervousness, etc. I am here to help you and your partner navigate through those feelings, organize your thoughts, prepare for the birth you and your partner have been dreaming of, and so much more. From answering your questions at any time of the day, to supporting you through the birth of your baby, to assisting you in transition from one family into an entirely new one. I always say "Your partner knows you intimately and provides love and reassurance, while I know birth intimately and provide education and information. Together, we make a great team in supporting you."
Please have a look around and if you have any questions, I invite you to message or email me. I look forward to supporting you through your journey to parenthood, whether it be your first or your fifth baby <3
Professional, Respectful and Safe
You can feel confident knowing that I will be there for you from the moment we become a team. You will never be without doula support, when needed, and can count on me to be professional, respectful and knowledgeable when answering any questions you may have.
Exclusive to your Beliefs
No matter your religion, philosophies, or beliefs surrounding birth, you can count on me to be there to support you. I will provide you with the knowledge of options pertaining to your birth preferences (and more), which will allow you to provide informed consent and refusal when in your birthing space. This is in regard to birthing location, interventions (pain management, assisted delivery, cesarean section), feeding, and routine after care for you, your family, and your new baby. There is no "one way" to give birth and I will be there to support you no matter your choices.
Family Centered Support
As your doula, I will work with you, your support person, your family, and your medical team to create your ideal birthing experience. I am not there to replace your support person, rather, I will be there to work with them, guide them, and educate them on ways they can help to support you. Your birth partner knows you intimately and I know birth, together creating a full on approach of support!
