I provide emotional, physiological, and evidence-based informational support during your pregnancy, birth, and after. I give professionalism, expertise, and compassion.
As a doula, I support all birthing goals including: planned cesarean, natural birth, induction, VBAC, and planned use of medication. You have your preferences; I'm here to stand along side you.
I provide the guidance and resources to have a comfortable, healthy, and enjoyable pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.
Your partner will experience this meaningful time without being overwhelmed. Your partner specifically benefits from the presence of a doula because he is relieved of the expectation of mastering birth support with little or no prior experience.
I have an entire repertoire available to use for comfort measures during your labor. We will discuss these thoroughly during our prenatal visits and establish your preferences.

"Naya was such a calm, understanding presence and was totally on board for the kind of labor and delivery I wanted...and then the one I ended up having! She was able to adjust to all the different moods of a delivery room, making the process feel so safe. In the same moment, she could laugh and joke with my husband and then turn around and talk me calmly through a contraction." -Amy G.
"Naya was a great support"
"We decided to hire Naya for our second pregnancy because I was hoping to have a VBAC. Once it was determined that I had to have a second C-section because our baby was breech she was still available to assist in any way possible. Naya was a great support and resource when we were trying to find natural ways for baby to rotate. She may say she's not a professional photographer but she was present during our delivery and we have several photos that we will treasure forever thanks to her. What we most appreciated about Naya was her calm spirit and encouraging attitude." -Jenn and Curt
"Everything we had hoped for"
"We didn't have a doula for our first child, but knew we wanted that kind of support for our second child. We met Naya and instanty knew whe was the perfect fit! She provided the right amount of prenatal support and information, and was amazing during our labor and birth...everything we had hoped for." - Renée
