Welcome to the Red Tent Midwifery doula service! I provide personalized prenatal and labor & birth support to families in southern, Midcoast, and central Maine. I am a DONA-trained doula and a Certified Professional Midwife, with more than 15 years of experience in providing labor support to clients and their families.
