The Birth Doula Difference
Comprehensive Care During Your Most Courageous Moment
As a certified full-spectrum doula with years of birth experience under my belt, I have what it takes to provide professional support and individualized care that will help you access your own strength and create the fearless birthing experience you’ve been longing for.
Over the past 5 years serving as a doula, I have noticed an increased desire for access to BIPOC doulas.
A strong, communal shift towards improving birth outcomes is leading more pregnant people to seek full circle support and continuity of care. As a doula and student midwife I want to help meet this rising demand for connection, creating more inclusivity, and helping to close the systemic gaps in maternal health.
"From the moment I met Davon at our meet and greet I knew she would be a great fit for my birth journey. She struck the perfect balance of a practical/spiritual vibe I was looking for in a doula. I was early in my pregnancy when I hired her and she made herself available in case I had any questions or concerns come up. Even though my labor & delivery experience turned out different than I expected-Davon was there for me to offer me support and process the change in plans which ended up being a csection."
"In meeting Davon for the first time it became immediately clear that we were on the right path. Davon, being very grounded, was easy to connect with, brought great energy to our journey and offered us a beautiful lens through which to see the birthing process. We felt comfortable as well knowing that she supports a variety of birth plans and even offers other services on the side that we could possibly use postpartum."
"Not only is Davon well informed, offering a plethora of information and resources, she was also mindful of our experience giving us what information we needed when the time was right or when we asked. Part of what we've learned on our journey is that reducing stress and cultivating calm is one of the best intentions to have during pregnancy and the birthing process and Davon is a wonderful support in creating just that kind of experience."
"In addition to Davon's professionalism and notable abilities as a doula, the most significant quality about her that we have gratitude for is her genuine enthusiasm and interest in the birthing process. Her heart is in it. She continuously builds on her knowledge, is eager to help when needed, sees the beauty in the birthing process and intends to focus on community building and bringing people together postpartum, something we look forward to being part of."
"I was most grateful for Davon's support postpartum. She helped facilitate breastfeeding in the recovery unit at the hospital following the c-section. I doubt my baby girl and I would have had such a successful start to breastfeeding if it wasn't for Davon's help during that crucial golden hour. For that I will be forever grateful."
