Welcome! I am looking forward to speaking with you!
What is a doula?
As a doula, my duty is to provide a continuous source of comfort, education, encouragement and support (both emotional and physical) during labor. Unlike an OB/GYN or midwife, a doula does not have medical training. I am there to serve as a soothing voice of experience, help with relaxation techniques and breathing exercises, offer advice on labor positions and more.
Before your due date, I will educate you about the process of labor and delivery, with the goal of making it less scary and more comfortable so you’re empowered to take a more active role in your birth.
My name is Kacey Davis - mom of four 5 and under. My husband and I are from the Jackson area and have been married since 2014. I have my bachelor degree in Child and Family Development, with a minor in Psychology.
My dream has been to be a doula since I learned what they were. I love being able to help my clients have the birth they desire, rather than one forced upon them.
I had my oldest daughter in a horrible birth experience; nothing went the way I wanted it to. I knew my next birth would be so much better. I learned what a doula was and started doing a ton of research on birthing methods to get my mind and body prepared to a natural medication free birth. Unfortunately I was induced again but I was able to labor with no other medical interventions. She was born healthy and happy! Then our first boy came into our lives but this time I was in labor (yay! My body does know how to start labor) but wait.... he is breech! After getting not one, but three ECV performed (unmedicated) I was yet again induced! My youngest was a water birth at home, it all happened so fast my water broke and a hour and half later I was holding him!
I have(currently) breastfed all four kiddos, for a total of 6 years so far, and I am available for breastfeeding and postpartum support.
What about COVID-19?
I provide at least 2 prenatal visits to help equip you and support person with education and tools that will help keep you as relaxed, informed, and confident as possible during labor and delivery. We work together and communicate the birth plan and how to ensure it gets implemented. I encourage my hospital clients to have access to telecommunication during the labor process, as I will be available throughout the hospital visit. I do a home visit when you get released or whenever you please. I offer another visit by 2 weeks postpartum.
I provide hospital, birthing center, and homebirth support.
