Welcome! Birth Arc is my doula service offered to women throughout pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period. I am a Certified Holistic Doula serving Houston and the Bryan/College Station area of Texas.
A doula is a non-medical support person who cares for a woman during labor and postpartum. Research has shown that having a dedicated support person knowledgeable about birth results in shorter labors with fewer complications; fewer requests for pain medication; a reduced need for the use of Pitocin, forceps or vacuum extraction, and cesareans; and fewer negative feelings about the birth experience [DONA International, 2005].
