Our Approach

Our philosophy is to help you achieve your idea of the most beautiful birth possible: your body, your baby, your birth. We support all mamas, and all birth options - natural, induction, epidural and c-section. Furthermore, we have no agenda - we support what you want. 

Part of a satisfying birth experience is knowing that you knew all of your options and were completely involved in any decision making - we honestly believe that if you don't know your options, then you have none. We educate our mamas on what choices to expect, and then support their decisions. This enables women to achieve their birth goals and encourages beautiful, empowering birth experiences.

Mama's Friend offers education, information, support, coaching and guidance, and works with the obstetric and gynecology specialists in southern

Alabama and surrounding areas. 

About Us

We are confident in evidence-based information, and the power of education; we trust the human body and the processes by which it operates.

We are confident in the strength of women, and that birth can be an empowering experience in a woman's life; that mamas are capable of conquering fear and preparing for birth in a way that will promote peace, power, strength and confidence.

We are confident in our mamas, and we are confident in our team - we believe our doulas can benefit all births, babies and mamas.

"If you don't know your options, you don't have any."

Know Your Options

Nutrition

Did you know:

What you eat or don't eat during pregnancy has a direct effect on the outcome of your pregnancy, as well as you and your baby's health?

Optimal Fetal Positioning

Relaxation

Did you know:

The position of your baby determines the length and intensity of your labor, and that  you can employ techniques to best position your baby for labor?

Did you know:

Good relaxation and abdominal breathing can take away 50% of pain in labor?

VBAC

Did you know:

Among healthy, low-risk women and pregnancies, vaginal births after cesarean deliveries (VBAC) are generally safer than a repeat cesarean?

Golden Hour

Did you know:

You can request to stay with your baby directly following your delivery - for as long as you choose, to basque in the "golden hour" - a priceless recovery and bonding moment between mom and baby.

 
If I could give any advice to soon to be mamas, it’s to run don’t walk to Mama’s Friend! Whether it’s for their classes and all the knowledge they offer about pregnancy and the birthing process or to have a doula by your side all along the way, they are absolutely the best!
