What is a brave birth?

A Brave Birth encompasses doula services provided by Jacki Brown and the stories + podcasts that will soon be found here. If you're just visiting our site to read wonderful birth stories then that is great! But if you are an expecting mama and are wanting a doula to support you through your end of pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum please see the "doula services" tab for more details. I'm so glad you're here! 

A Brave Birth ultimately seeks to share the empowerment of birth through stories and support from mothers, for mothers and to mothers. In the journey from maidenhood to motherhood each one of us has had to have courage to endure the pain, joy, and unknown of pregnancy, laborland and birth. A Brave Birth seeks to share those stories. 


What is a birth doula?


A birth doula provides physical, emotional and informational support through the end of pregnancy, labor and right after birth. A doula has been trained in different techniques for hands on physical support during labor and can be a comfort and empowering voice to the mother who is laboring. A doula helps provide clients with resources and information relevant to their decisions that may need to make regarding pregnancy and labor. You can find more info on what a doula is on the DONA International website here: https://www.dona.org/what-is-a-doula/
