Deanna Sauter, Birth Doula East Bay Area - replying to your post
Providing birth doula services in Oakland, Berkeley, Walnut Creek and the surrounding East Bay. My goals as a doula are to provide unconditional and non-judgmental guidance and support for your birth, to assist with informed consent for hospital birth and to hold space for couples to experience deeper intimacy through the labor and birth process.
My passion is helping people on their healing journey and providing pregnant families with as much positive inspiration, information and nurturing as possible throughout pregnancy, labor and the birth process.
