Pregnancy can be a magical time but sometimes we are faced with unexpected circumstances that leave us sad or confused. Perhaps you are carrying a baby with Down’s syndrome, a handicap, or a congenital illness. You may be experiencing mixed feelings about an unplanned pregnancy or are a single mother with no support. Anxiety from a past miscarriage or a traumatic prior birth may leave you fearful of labor and delivery . Having a Doula experienced in handling grief, loss or stress to walk with you through this journey can be a great comfort. Her guidance can help you cope with difficult feelings, explain choices and make decisions that are best for you during this challenging time.
