Doula Services

As a doula, I provide emotional, informational, and physical support during pregnancy, labor, and beyond. I can help you with prenatal questions, birth plan development, labor support, breastfeeding help, baby wearing information, and more. I'm here for you.

We have a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.

About Me

Hannah Sims, Doula

I am a registered nurse turned stay at home mom of 3 with a passion for birth. I have wanted to help pregnant moms for as long as I can remember. I want moms to have the birth that THEY want, without fear or pressure!

I provide support for pregnant women, support during labor for medicated, unmedicated, c-section, VBAC birth, and more, and postpartum visits so that you can focus on what's important: getting your baby here and settled into your family life.

I am trained by DONA and am currently pursuing certification through them, as well as a lactation consultant certification. I received a Bachelor's degree in Nursing from Auburn University and maintain my RN license as well.

Why have a Doula?

Many studies have been done to show the benefits of having a doula.

Women with continuous support from a doula were more likely to

  • have spontaneous vaginal births,

  • have shorter labors.

Women with continuous support from a doula were less likely to

  • have negative birth experiences,

  • use pain medication,

  • need epidural/spinal analgesia,

  • have instrumental vaginal births,

  • have cesarean births,

  • have infants with low 5 minute Apgar scores

The most benefits were seen when continuous support was provided by someone in a doula role versus a member of the hospital staff or the woman’s social network.
