Doula Services | Healing Massage & Bodywork in East Brookfield, MA

Doula Services

Being blessed with new life is a beautiful process. Along the way, you are greeted by many changes, questions, decisions and joyous experiences. Your doula is a reliable, radiating source of comfort and support during your pregnancy and beyond.

Doula services provide childbirth support and education for expectant couples during pregnancy, labor, delivery and the postpartum period. Each stage of pregnancy presents new choices and opportunities that become easier to navigate with a doula. You will be supported mentally, physically and emotionally through a life-changing journey.

Our doula services are delivered with a nurturing touch and a genuinely caring approach. The well-being of Mom and Baby are continuously promoted throughout the prenatal and postnatal stages. Doula services are dedicated to comfort, peace and harmony during pregnancy. Having the support of an experienced doula is especially beneficial for first-time moms, and can bring relief to partners and extended family as well.

Doula services are offered by Martha Davis and include:

  • Two initial meetings for prospective clients, where in-depth discussions will take place, addressing topics such as: services offered (doula and other); availability; logistics; answers to any questions; birth plan; fears; comfort measures; labor positions, etc.
  • Use of our extensive library of pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, parenting and other helpful books, videos and literature.
  • Availability by phone for discussion of any questions.
  • On-call availability the week before and the week after the prospective due date.
  • When in labor, contact by phone as to when and where Martha will meet the parents (home or hospital).
  • Continuous birth support during labor, delivery and recovery time until the new family is situated (at home or hospital).
  • Bodywork/massage therapy for Mom and Baby, either at hospital or at home.

To complement our doula services, Martha offers massage, bodywork and other healing services to support you and your family during this precious time.
