In addition to providing the premier offering in pre and postnatal massage therapies and body care, ZEN Wellness includes birth services by certified doulas.

What is a doula?

A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

What support does a doula provide?

Physical Support

Our ZÊN Birth Services can provide comfort during prenatal months with our ZÊN Baby therapies, ideas on how to position your body for better rest and relief in later trimesters, as well as tips on how to relieve your aching muscles while baby is growing beautifully inside. Over the course of several meetings, ZÊN Birth Services will help provide and prepare you with information on laboring techniques and practices, and are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week for any physical support you need.

During labor and delivery, ZÊN Birth Services will be by your side using hands on relief therapy such as counter pressure, breathing assistance, soft touch, tension relief, aromatherapy, partner swaying, and to offer relief with position ideas. Our skilled services have helped speed labor progression, decrease anxiety and pain, and assist in helping baby birth into a warm, relaxed and welcoming environment.
