The Gentle Seed - Cincinnati Doula Services

Childbirth is an experience in a woman's life that holds the power to transform her forever. Passing through these powerful gates - in her own way - remembering all the generations of women who walk with her.... She is never alone. ~Suzanne Arms

The greatest aspect of the work of a doula is the research. Studies have proven that the presences of a doula increases bonding between the laboring mother and her partner. The pressure for the partner to "know what to do" is relieved with the doula there. Your chances of a positive birth outcome increase with a doula at your side.
