Megan Barbour Birth and Postpartum Doula

My name is Megan and I am a wife and mother to 3 amazing children.  I have been a Birth Doula for 7 years and recently completed my Postpartum Doula training.  As a Birth Doula, it is my job to create a comfortable, peaceful, and safe environment for women to enter into their birth experience without any distraction; to be a liaison with doctors or midwives, and to encourage families to be informed and confident to advocate on their own behalf.  I am there not only for the moms but to also support the dads, and to make a family's experience one where both parents feel empowered to bring their precious new human into the world.  As a Doula, I have extensive experience and professional training surrounding birth, prenatal and postpartum care; and I understand the correlation between a positive and empowering birth experience and a mother’s postpartum mental and emotional health.

Asking your husband to be your sole guide through labour is like asking him to lead the way on a climb of Mt. Everest.  He may be smart and trustworthy, you may love him, but in the Himalayas you'd BOTH be a lot better off with a sherpa! - Pam England
