Houston birth doula, Candace Mensik
A note from Candace:
Houston Birth Doula

I believe childbirth is the essence of nature’s beauty in its purest form. A sacred rite of passage. Birth unlocks a secret compartment of a woman’s being which was undiscovered until the profound moment that she becomes a mother. The birth of each child will forever influence the mental and physical health of the mother, baby, and family.

My role as a doula is to enhance this sacred experience and promote an overall positive outcome for you and your family- by providing information, non-judgemental support, and by helping you access your inner wisdom and strength. My role is not to speak for you but rather to help you find and nurture your own voice.

By working together, we can create a safe and relaxed environment around birth, giving you confidence in your body and belief in yourself.

Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.
