Why You Need a Doula AND an Herbalist

One thing that is super cool about us is that both of our doulas (Reagan and Torisaun) are also herbalists! This is so important because there are a lot of benefits to herbs during pregnancy and postpartum, and many that should be avoided. Torisaun even has her own line of herbal products and remedies for daily life, pregnancy, postpartum, and uterine health. You can send us a message to get in touch with her about her unique offerings.


Doulas are trained professionals who provide emotional, physical, and informational support to women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Herbalism is the use of plants for medicinal purposes, and a doula who is also an herbalist can offer a unique set of benefits to their clients. In this blog post, we will explore why you should consider hiring a doula who is an herbalist.

One of the primary benefits of hiring a doula who is an herbalist is that they can offer natural remedies to help manage discomfort and promote healing during pregnancy and childbirth. For example, they may recommend teas or tinctures to help with nausea, herbs to support the uterus during labor, or natural remedies to promote postpartum healing. These remedies can be a safe and effective alternative to pharmaceuticals for some women.

Herbalists can also help to provide nutritional guidance during pregnancy and postpartum. They can recommend foods and herbs that can help to support a healthy pregnancy and a smooth postpartum recovery. They can also offer guidance on herbs and supplements that can support breastfeeding and lactation.

Another benefit of hiring a doula who is an herbalist is that they can offer natural solutions for common postpartum issues. For example, they may recommend herbs to help with postpartum depression or anxiety, or natural remedies to help with postpartum bleeding or pain.

In addition to these benefits, herbalists can offer a unique perspective on pregnancy and childbirth. They have a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of the body and the natural world, and can offer insights into the spiritual and emotional aspects of pregnancy and childbirth.

In conclusion, hiring a doula who is also an herbalist can offer many benefits to women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. From natural remedies to nutritional guidance, an herbalist doula can offer a unique set of services to support a healthy and positive birth experience. If you are considering hiring a doula, it may be worth considering someone who also has herbal training and expertise.
