Hey there Mamas and Mamas-to-be, 


My name is Rakhee Devasthali and I am a Birth Doula in the Triangle. I have completed my training through DONA at UNC Hospitals and have attended numerous births at the Women's Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill. 


For my clients I provide services of all sorts! I meet with the woman and her partner weeks before the birth to help lay out the birth plan. We are able to talk and get to know one another and I can get a feel for what they need. I go through massage techniques with her and the partner so the partner can know concrete ways to be helpful during the birth, a possibly confusing time. 


During the birth I have done all sorts of things from massage to breathing together to teaching the partner massage techniques, to taking pictures of the family together to running out to get food for them. I have even read pros and cons to the new mother when she needed to decide about Vitamin K shots and eye drops. 


After birth I help the family arrange a schedule of friends who've volunteered to bring food. 


I believe every woman should have a doula if that is what she wants. That's why I offer my services on a sliding scale. 


I look forward to hearing from you! 


Rakhee Devasthali, Doula
