Now offering Birth Doula Services by Keegan Mills!
As a birth doula, Keegan can support the mother and partner in the months leading up to birth and at birth with compassionate listening, essential resources, and intentional guidance for helping mother and partner experience a meaningful birthing experience. As stated by DONA International, the leading professional organization for doulas internationally, "Countless scientific trials examining doula care demonstrate remarkably improved physical and psychological outcomes for both mother and baby. Doulas have a positive impact on the well-being of the entire family."
My goal is help you make the most informed decisions about your birth and during birth. I am working for you, not the hospital or your caregiver. I will offer guidance and support and will not tell you how you should have your birth and instead will ask questions, provide advocacy as you wish, and direct you to resources. This is your birth, your baby, your body. I work to allow you to live in your truth and what you desire.
I incorporate much of yoga in my work as a doula, such as breathing techniques, meditation, and tips for preparing the body and mind for birth. My philosophy is to provide the most positive birthing experience for you by meeting your and your partner's needs. This comes in the form of a calm presence with supportive coaching, affirmations, and massage. I also offer essential oils to help with relaxation and the laboring process. I would be honored to join you on this journey of motherhood.
