Erika Laquer

A doula will make a difference

in the experiences and

memories you have about

childbirth.These memories will

last you a lifetime.

Being a doula has been a privilege and a joy as I accompany people on their journey through pregnancy to parenthood. My training as a childbirth educator and a traditional midwife enhance the knowledge and skills I bring to each one of my clients.

My goals for expectant parents is to prepare you for childbirth. I want you to discover the range of possibilities and choices you have for the birth of their child. And, I aim to provide the emotional support and physical comfort individualized for you. As an experienced doula I know how to bridge the gap between birth providers and expectant parents. The birth of your child deserves nothing less.  I want all of my clients to make informed, evidence-based decisions about pregnancy and birth in collaboration with the birth provider of their choice.

Whether this is your first pregnancy or your last, my goal is to help you, your partner and your baby have a satisfying childbirth birth experience, the best beginnings for your new family and fond memories for all.
