What is a Doula?

A doula is a childbirth professional that supports, empowers, and educates mothers and their partners during prenatal, labor, and postpartum aspects of pregnancy and childbirth.

Can a Doula help after the baby has arrived?

Doulas also offer postpartum support and allow mothers to rest while they’re healing from childbirth. They will often come in to check on families, do light housework, watch the baby so mom can shower and sleep and bring food. For an hour or two so mom can have time adjust to her new journey.

What is the difference between a doula vs. midwife?

The main difference is that doulas are not medically trained. They are there simply to offer guidance and support throughout the pregnancy.

“Doulas can help you birth your baby at home, at birthing centers, in hospitals, with or without pain medication — even if you have a C-section or choose to have your baby in the woods, a doula can help wherever or however you choose to have your baby.

Midwives, on the other hand, are medically trained and are generally tasked with the same duties as an OBGYN, but they will likely spend more time with the birthing family than a doctor would. They also do more home deliveries.

Our Mission

To have an impact on the infant mortality rate by decreasing one’s ability to have a better survival rate among our women in the United States. Enhancing their ability to advocate for their self during pregnancy and childbirth. By empowering them to use their tools during Labor & Delivery making it an amazing memory that every childbearing woman should experience.

Our Vision

All moms deserve to have a healthcare that is , safe, nonjudgmental and inspiring birthing experience. One Breath , One Vision , One Journey. ❤

Words from Happiest Mothers

If you are considering a Doula, I would highly recommend Joytonia. She was an amazing support, wealth of knowledge, and kind, loving soul before, during, and after the birth of my first baby. She offers many opportunities to connect with other moms, learn about pregnancy/childbirth, and ways to care for yourself.
She truly cares for her clients and goes above above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and cared for.

Miss Joytonia was so very helpful during the labor and delivery of my daughter. The morning I went into labor she was at my house helping me walk and labor. After I had my daughter she stayed and made sure I was good, then she prepared a delicious dinner for my family so we wouldn’t have to worry about the meal once we got home.
I highly recommend Dutchess of Doula and only wish I would of found her sooner in my pregnancy.

I met Joytonia when I was only 8 months pregnant and I knew right away that I needed her services. I was nervous at first when I decided to have home birth but thanks to all she taught me, I was not only able to have home birth, but I had my baby unassisted because labor was under an hour. This birth was such an empowering experience and I’m still at awe that I did it. Once you work with Joytonia, you are family. I HIGHLY recommend Dutchess of Doula!
