Congratulations on your pregnancy!
undoubtedly a very exciting time in your life
and you want the best possible birthing experience.
|What is a
The word doula comes from the Greek word meaning "maidservant." A doula is a professional woman experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to the mother before, during and just after childbirth. A doula stays by the laboring woman's side throughout the entire labor, assisting the woman and her partner in carrying out their birth plan.
Please let me introduce myself. I am Laura Rossignol,
a certified birth doula with
Doulas of North America (DONA). I work for the
pregnant woman (and their partner), and therefore can
attend your birth where ever you choose. I am very
fortunate to be on the Preferred Doula List at Eastern
Connecticut Health Network, which includes Manchester
Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital. In
addition, I work in association with St. Francis
Childbirth Education classes as a guest speaker,
informing students of the the great work of birth
doulas. I have
had vigorous training in childbirth and am a mother
myself. I've also been trained in hypno-birthing and am a
reiki practitioner. All of these things help me to be a
better assistant and advocate for birthing women.
My goal as a birth doula is to assist you in having
the most satisfying birth experience, as you define it!
One couple had this to say, "Thank you so much for all
of your help and support throughout such an important,
magical experience in our life." Please contact me if
you would like to find out more about birth doulas
and how they can help you during your magical time.
