The Changes are Made! Please visit my new website!

I am very excited to announce that I have finished my new website and it is now active!

As much as I have enjoyed this wonderful format, I must move on to the new template, so this site will no longer be the main webpage for my services. Instead, I will keep the blog here, under a different url, to offer the latest updates and stories from within the birthing world!

Please check out my new website and enjoy!

The Wait is Finally Almost Over!

I have been dropping hints recently on my Facebook page and on here about changes coming to Lovely Labors Doula Services. One of the changes expressed was a completely redesigned website, and a few other surprises. Well, the wait is finally almost over!!

I am pleased to announce that I am also changing the name from Lovely Labors Doula Services to Hannah's Heart Prenatal and Birth Support Services within the month of February and my new website will be launched. I am also pleased to announce that very soon I will be able to offer Childbirth Education classes in addition to my doula services or separately as well. Many more changes are coming but I am so excited about these that I just could not hold it in any longer!

Be on the lookout for more information as it comes about!

Congrats to the M Family!

I was very blessed to work with a wonderful family on the 23rd as mom welcomed her beautiful baby girl into the world. Baby V. was 7lb 11oz and 19 inches long and as soon as she was placed on mom's chest, we were all crying tears of joy. Photos coming soon! Congrats to the M. Family on your beautiful new addition!

Officially Certified!

I am so happy to announce that I have graduated from my course and am now officially CERTIFIED as a Birth Doula through CBI! I want to thank everyone that has supported me and encouraged me as I have worked through the various requirements needed for completion. I also very strongly thank the wonderful families that have thus far allowed me to attend and aid them during one of the biggest days of their lives. There is a special place in my heart for you all and I literally could not have done this without you. In the future I promise to give 1000% to any other families that choose to allow me the same opportunity. I am so blessed right now! Thank you!

No Thanks, Dr. Lisa!

There is nothing wrong with old fashioned vaginal birth!

Doulas More Effective than Staff or Mother's Family, Friends

Researchers compiled data from the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register. Twenty-one studies with both published and unpublished studies that compared the effects of doula support to standard care were included in the review. Information from more than 15,000 women and their birth experiences were analyzed by two authors who independently reviewed all of the data.
