As a Fort Worth doula, I work with some of the best care providers, photographers, and educators in the area. I have also spent a lot of time educating myself so I want to supply you with the resources for you to make educated, informed decisions. See below for my recommendations.

Still not sure a doula is right for you? Trying to get a partner on board? Check out these articles.

"Doula-assisted mothers were four times less likely to have a low birth weight (LBW) baby, two times less likely to experience a birth complication involving themselves or their baby, and significantly more likely to initiate breastfeeding. Communication with and encouragement from a doula throughout the pregnancy may have increased the mother’s self-efficacy regarding her ability to impact her own pregnancy outcomes." - Impact of Doulas on Healthy Birth Outcomes
