Supporting Women in Southern California

I BELIEVE THAT AS WOMEN WE HAVE OPTIONS AND CHOICES WHEN IT COMES TO CHILD BIRTH. TODAY IT IS MORE ACCESSIBLE THAN EVER
TO EDUCATE AND PREPARE OURSELVES FOR THE WONDER OF PREGNANCY AND BIRTH. IF YOU TAKE THE TIME
TO UNDERSTAND YOUR BODY, EMOTIONS, AND CHOICES YOU CAN EXPERIENCE PEACE AND CONFIDENCE AS THE DAY DRAWS NEAR. 
TO BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN THE PROCESS OF “LIFE” IS TRULY A GIFT. I ENCOURAGE WOMEN
TO RECEIVE THIS GIFT WITH OPEN HANDS.


MY DOULA PARTNERSHIP

For prospective clients with expected due dates in September 2018 and beyond, I  am excited to now be offering doula support to families in San Diego County in partnership with another seasoned doula, Joy Kobrick. Together we form Joyful Roots Doula Services. When working with a doula team you get two doulas for the price of one, and you glean the skills, wisdom, and support of two seasoned and confident doulas. You’ll have meetings with each of us leading up to your birth, so you feel very comfortable with both of us. Then, when you are in labor, we work in shifts so that you always have a rested doula by your side.

Serving the following areas...

San Diego, Carlsbad, Vista, Oceanside, Camp Pendleton, Cardiff, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Leucadia, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Carmel Valley,Mira Mesa, La Jolla, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Rancho Bernardo, Escondido, Poway, San Marcos, Hillcrest, Kensington, Temecula, Murrieta, Fallbrook, more...


Dara the Doula has an amazing gift in guiding women through the birth process, with so much love and compassion. I have had the pleasure of attending several births with her over the last few years, and I am always in awe of how talented she is in helping families have the birth they desire. The care Dara provides for her clients is individualized and tailored to fit their specific needs. She has a beautiful calming presence that creates the positive energy that is so important during labor/birth. Dara has a strong bond with her clients and is very good at anticipating their needs. She is very knowledgeable of the birth process, and uses all of the right positions/techniques that help babies successfully navigate the pelvis in labor. The space she holds for her clients in labor is beautiful and full of love. I always look forward to working with Dara and recommend her excellent doula skills to everyone!
