In addition to being a doula, I am also an attorney specializing in patient's rights in maternity care.  With this background, I am able to offer interested clients a higher level of advocacy during birth than a typical doula.  My patient advocacy focuses primarily on enhancing patient-provider communication around informed consent.  Having a doula who is also a lawyer can give your providers extra incentive to treat you with respect and observe your rights during delivery.   Please inquire for details and pricing!
