About Bethany: “The ideal that I hold most dear is that all people deserve to be treated with respect and compassion. I believe that this is especially true for a woman and her partner during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. As a new family is born, it is crucial that the new parents are supported emotionally and physically, so that they may, in turn, give the best possible care to their child(ren).
“As a doula, I strive to support new parents in a way that is tailored to their specific needs. Every woman’s birth is her own, and I am here to help navigate the sometimes difficult and confusing world of birth. I understand that each woman’s wants and needs during her labor are unique, and while I am trained and able to assist in intervention-free births, I do not judge any birthing woman’s choice to utilize the interventions that she deems necessary.
“I am a toLabor (formerly ALACE) trained and certified doula and a Birthing From Within beginning mentor. I am certified in using the Rebozo (a long, woven shawl used in Mexico) during the childbearing year and I am also a certified level one Reiki practitioner. I have also attended Bradley Method, Lamaze, and Prepared Childbirth classes, some of the most common birth classes offered in Wilmington and the surrounding area. Please contact me if you have any questions. Consultations are always free of charge.”
