Fresno Birth & Baby Doula Group
Location & Hours
My name is Meghann Scaife. I am a DTI trained Labor and Postpartum Doula who is passionate about equipping birthing families to both make the right childbirth decisions for themselves, and transition confidently into their role as parents. I believe that parents should be educated on the many choices available to birthing families, so they can form an evidence-based plan for their "perfect birth". I help families navigate those options and achieve their goals through continuous labor support, a variety of coping techniques, positional changes, aromatherapy, acupressure, massage, and offering consistent emotional reassurance. I believe that a Doula's role is not to take the place of the partner, but to enhance the care given to both parents as they labor together.
I believe that our transition into parenthood is not always an easy one. There are a few of us in this modern age who are blessed enough to be surrounded by our family or close community who can both model newborn care and be readily available to help ease that transition. I recognize that in our current global community not everyone has their family geographically close by or with schedules that allow them to be available during this special time. I am equipped to not only help you plan for your first few days and months with your child(ren), but to be available to come to your home and be a touchstone resource and extra set of hands. Whether it is breastfeeding support, newborn care, postpartum care for mothers, nursery organization, healthy food preparation, or simply someone to care for the baby while you get a nap or take a shower!
I want you to know I feel incredibly honored to be there as families are made. It is not a role I take lightly. I'd love to talk with you about your pregnancy, birth plans, newborn care plans and answer any questions you may have.
