A homebirth is when a mother gives birth to her unborn child outside of the hospital or birth center. This can be done in the comfort of their own home, a family member's home or any location they feel safe and supported. For-medical care the mom will be serviced by a midwife, either a CNM (certified nurse midwife) or a CPM (certified professional midwife). A lot midwives that support homebirths require their patients to hire a doula to fill in the support that they know that they will not be able to provide.
Please understand that a doula does not take the roll of a midwife and will not perform any medical duties.

Within my two year span of being a doula, I have supported 30 plus families (and still counting) where I have supported a wide range of women and families. I have discovered that homebirths are where as a doula I shine the brightest and able to give a mama my all. I have created a exclusive just for home births.
