Foot Massage for Pregnant WomanBirth Doula Services









Welcome, I’m Jasmine. I have been offering birth doula services in Seattle for over 12 years and am dedicated to providing families with the most compassionate, competent care in their birthing experiences. I am diligently pursuing new ways to offer support to birthing families in a changing world. I am here to guide, educate and nurture you through this beautiful experience to help you achieve a safe, healthy and supported birth.

What is a Birth Doula?

A Birth Doula:
· Assists a woman and her partner in preparing for and carrying out their preferences and
wishes for birth
· Provides a laboring woman (and potentially their partner & family) continuous emotional
support and physical comfort measures
· Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor
· Stays by the side of the laboring woman throughout the entire labor
· Provides an objective viewpoint, and assistance to the family, in obtaining the information
they need to make informed decisions
· Facilitates communication between the laboring party, their partner, family and clinical
care providers
· Perceives her role as the one who nurtures and protects the woman’s memory of her birth

My Services & Experience

As a Birth Doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying
birth experience. I have completed training through DONA International & attended
over 40 births; providing massage therapy and labor support. I draw from my professional training, knowledge and experience to provide emotional and physical
support as needed. You can depend on me to help facilitate communication between you and the
support staff to ensure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you
and your partner, make suggestions for positioning to encourage comfort and labor progress. I also provide therapeutic massage, acupressure & other techniques for
comfort and pain management. Hot and cold hydrotherapy are used to ease the discomforts of muscle tension, pain and nausea. Managing lightning, music and aromatherapy help to create a cozy birthing environment.
