SHOULD I HIRE A DOULA?

Studies show the continuous support a doula provides from pre- to post-birth can:

MY STORY

It is my mission to empower mothers as they begin the humble work of parenting.

I help families get a loving start by supporting the birthing mother with physical comfort measures, emotional reassurance and comprehensive information regarding options and interventions in pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.  

My name is Sarah Abigail Ejigu (known affectionately as Abby), and I am a professionally trained labor doula. As a mother of three, I know firsthand the excitement of growing a family, and the many questions that come along with it.  

A doula is an independent contractor and works for you, not your caregiver or hospital.  My home base is located in Berkeley, CA, and I serve the San Francisco Bay Area community.
