Faye Strauch CD(DONA): Certified Doula
My love of all things birth began with the birth of my own children a long time ago. When I was pregnant with my kids, I didn’t realize I could make decisions about my birth preferences and the way I wanted my birth experience to happen. Three years ago, I was fortunate to support and nurture one of my daughters during her pregnancy, birth and postpartum. That was one of the most precious moments and I realized at that time that I wanted to provide support to many other expecting mothers.
I value each woman and her birth experiences and I feel honored that I am allowed to be a part of those personal moments. As a doula my desire is to serve and empower you and ensure confidence in new families. I will respect your individual preferences and choices and advocate for you to have the birth you desire.
