Amy Thames, Size-Friendly Doula
Hello Baby Birth Services was founded two years after my own traumatic birth. It was born of my passion to help other women avoid what I had been through and it evolved into a way to support women and their families before, during, and after birth and to meet the growing need for birth and parenting support in the Jackson, MS metro area. I believe this support is a foundation upon which you can build the village it requires to nurture, meet, guide, and enjoy your growing family.
Pregnancy matters. As a doula, I help my clients understand and navigate their choices during pregnancy including nutrition, exercise, education, encouragement, and preparation.
Birth matters. A woman’s memories of her birth experiences last a lifetime and can have powerful effects on her self-esteem and confidence. It is now widely recognized that choosing to add a doula to one’s birth team can yield many positive benefits for mom, dad, and baby. Read more about the evidence on doulas over on one of my favorite resources, Evidence Based Birth.
How baby is born matters. The way your baby begins his or her role as a child and the way you begin your role as parents impacts your futures because it impacts your connections.
Family connection matters. I believe we are put on this earth to learn how to love and connect with one another while navigating the differences we possess. I chose this job because birth was a pivotal moment in my life and I knew it was for other women too. I stay in this line of work because I hope that by listening to families, educating them, and encouraging them, I can be a part of starting them off on the right foot, whatever that looks like for the individual family.
