Birth Doula Care

Birth doula care at Knoxville Birth & Baby is designed to embrace and encourage mothers as they navigate pregnancy, birth, and the early postpartum period. Your doula will provide prenatal visits to get to know you and your desires for the birth experience, evidence-based information about pregnancy and birth, knowledge of comfort measures and positioning for labor, and compassionate support throughout your journey.
