Begin Parenthood on the right foot

Parenthood is not a journey that has to be traveled alone. As the age old saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Through over 30 years of assisting friends, family, and countless new parents, I have had the joy of helping new parents start life with their newborn with the most enjoyable experience.

About Candace Hicks

All my life I have been a caretaker. The people in my life have called me, “mom,” “teacher,” “friend,” and of course, “doula”. I am passionate about providing informational, physical, and emotional support to women during their pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum period. Myself and the colleagues I work with are experienced in photography and children as well. Not only am I experienced with prenatal care, I have had years of experience working with families as a child educator, a music teacher for over 30 years, and being the world’s best mom. My five kids even say so. I offer professional photography for pregnancy, newborns, and family photo shoots. We want to capture your memorable moments so you can enjoy them for a lifetime.

To augment my services as a doula and to offer more options, I’ve expanded to work with postpartum moms with their new family. I’ve been trained in Childbirth Education at Bastyr University, and I am a Midwife Birth Assistant. This has increased my skills above and beyond the scope and practice of a birth doula to better serve my clients.

Benefits of a Doula

There is plenty of evidence to suggest that hiring a doula to assist a pregnancy comes with several benefits. In addition to having extra hands to help, a doula’s expertise leads to an overall more positive pregnancy for the mother. Organizations that have documented the benefits of doula-assisted pregnancy include the W.H.O., The Medical Leadership Council, and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada. Below are the most common benefits of hiring a doula:

R

Fewer complications while in labor, thus reducing the likelihood of cesarean section.

R

Reduced labor duration.

R

Experience of labor is overall more positive when assisted by a doula.
