Innovative Childbirth Services is dedicated to providing
professional labor support, childbirth education, breastfeeding
education and postpartum support to birthing mothers.
My name is Lorraine Shorman, and as a Certified Doula/
Perinatal Support Specialist, I will provide physical, emotional
and nurturing support during labor, childbirth and the
immediate postpartum period. As a mother of three children
myself, I know first hand the emotional choices which must be
made during labor and delivery. As a doula I am committed to
helping birthing women and their partners achieve the birth
that they want to have with the best of outcomes. The
nurturing and support that a doula will provide to a mother and
her partner is invaluable.
As a birth doula, I do not administer medical care or interpret
medical procedures. I will strongly support every choice of the
birthing woman and her partner. The purpose behind providing
labor support is to accomplish satisfying outcomes for babies,
mothers, and the entire family.
There are many, wonderful long-term benefits of using a birth
doula such as improved breastfeeding, decreased postpartum
depression, greater maternal satisfaction and stronger
mother-infant interaction and bonding.
I will provide comfort measures such as relaxation,
visualization, breathing techniques, massage, positive
reinforcement, relaxation music, birth ball, position changes,
visualization, warm showers, aromatherapy, reflexology, and
assistance with Moms using Hypnobabies during birth. I will
also aide in communication with your birth team to ensure a
positive birthing experience for everyone involved!
I am available for continuous early labor support in your home,
if desired. I provide 24-hour on call phone support during your
pregnancy, as well as accompanying you and your partner to
prenatal visits if desired. I offer postpartum care, along with
breastfeeding assistance as needed, resources for Mom, and
postpartum phone support with a follow up visit after the birth.
