Jessica Vogtman is a doula with Birth Arts International. I am currently in training, and undergoing certification. I became passionate about birth after having my daughter in 2012, with the support of my wonderful husband and doula, Julie Grove of Charm City Doula. The birth of a baby is a transforming moment; mothers and fathers are born in the same breathe. I want to support families in this important time, and to help you achieve the birth you desire.

Provide emotional support, physical comfort measures, an objective viewpoint and assistance to the woman in getting the information she needs to make good decisions. Facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and clinical care providers. Help initiate breastfeeding and help immediately after birth. Follow up with one post partum visit to go over the birth, and offer any support for breastfeeding and adjusting to life with a new baby. Maintain all information received from her clients as Confidential.

"I do not care what kind of birth you have.... scheduled caesarian, epidural hospital birth, or if you birth alone in the woods next to baby deer.

I care that you had options, that you were supported, and that you were respected."
