Woven Births | Laura Howells
I used Laura Howells for my delivery at Alta Bates. I interviewed several doulas, but her background is massage was the key selling point. I did a package that included several pre-natal massages and a post-natal massage. Those pre-natal sessions helped her get to know where I hold tension and my major pain points. The moment she walked into my delivery room, she put down her bag and immediately started massage work to relieve my tension. She has transitioned more into lactation consultant work, but still does massage and set up a group of doulas she works with. https://wovenbirths.com/
I highly recommend Laura Howells (http://wovenbirths.com/massage/). She was my birth doula, but also gave me multiple massages throughout my pregnancy, as she specializes in pre and postnatal massage. She's very skilled and worked through any pains I had. I have a joint syndrome and she took care to give the best massages for my condition.
Laura Howells saved my sanity. She is a great multitasker and good cook.
