What is a doula? Should you have a doula? What are the benefits? Do you need a doula? Northern Virginia Doula, Culpeper Doula

Peaceful Waters. It’s not just a name or wishful thinking. It’s a mission. It was the birthright spoken over me as an infant and it’s what I strive to bring to each of the families who welcome me as their doula.

It’s also what I want to bring to the world of pregnancy, child birth and parenting resources. You have a million options when you look for perspectives in this area, and I want to offer some that have been tested, proven and found reliable. I strive to be a peaceful stream alternative to the often conflicting information surrounding childbirth.
