Welcome to Hands and Heart Doula and Birth Services! I’m Jessica McGilvray, Birth Doula and Founder of Hands and Heart Doula and Birth Services. I am passionate about birth and about empowering women to make evidence based and informed choices for themselves and their babies throughout the child bearing year. I believe that all women should have a peaceful, beautiful birth experience, whether it involves having a natural childbirth, having an epidural or other medical interventions, or having a Cesarean section. It is my goal to support women in their pregnancies, labors, and postpartum period informationally, emotionally, and physically to help them achieve their birth goals and to have an empowering experience however their birth unfolds.
Please take some time to look around the website and check out blog posts and resources for pregnancy, birth, postpartum period, and breastfeeding information. If you are interested in labor doula support, contact me to schedule a free consultation.
