Birth Doula Services

Ashley-Willa-VBAC-Cedars-site

Welcome! I am a DONA International Certified Birth Doula attending births in the greater Los Angeles area. As a birth doula, I provide continuous informational, physical and emotional support before, during and just after childbirth.

Philosophy

My job is to support your ideal birth, whatever that means for you. My goal is to help you have a satisfying birth experience where and how you feel safest and most comfortable. Studies show that a woman’s satisfaction with her birth experience greatly depends on whether or not she felt supported and included in the decision-making process during her labor and birth. A woman who is supported to make conscious, informed decisions will also enter motherhood feeling much more confident to nourish and care for her baby. Each woman and her partner have different desires and needs. I am passionate about helping parents explore and articulate their preferences, encouraging them to communicate those wishes with their care team, and ultimately helping them to experience a satisfying birth.

[testimonial name=”Brooke H” gender=”female” company=”Los Angeles”]”Finding Lacey was the greatest gift fate could have sent us. She has a deep knowledge base and exudes a strong self confident understanding through her own experience as a mother. When things got down to the wire she went from a calming peaceful caregiver to a strong active member of our birth team. She brought so much more to the table than what I expected from a doula. We would not have wanted to do this without her.”[/testimonial]

[testimonial name=”Susan B” gender=”female” company=”Los Angeles”]”Lacey was so non-judgmental from the start. She supported whatever decisions I had already made, and helped me navigate the ones I had yet to make. She’s very nurturing and comforting and explained to me what was happening at each point and that is so helpful. My husband and I are so grateful to Lacey for keeping our delivery room a calm and focused place.”[/testimonial][/testimonials]
