prenatal & postpartum doula services

 Kristina Parks offers birth and postpartum doula services to individuals and families both within her own practice
and with Napa Valley Midwives.



How it works


Doulas provide physical and emotional support for clients in labor. There are many tools utilized to provide support in labor including but not limited to: massage, encouraging a change in positions, aromatherapy, breathing techniques. In addition to tools used throughout labor, I serve as an advocate for you in the hospital to reduce the use of unnecessary interventions and co-create a birth plan that works for you and your family. I meet with you three times prenatally to provide education and information regarding labor and birth. I also provide postpartum doula services in which I come to your home and can do daily household chores, cook meals, hold baby while you rest, and provide education.
