Find a Doula in Davenport, IA
Char Perkins RN LCCE, CD(DONA), CD(MIA)
I have been an OB registered nurse for over 30 years. During that time, I have taught childbirth classes for over 28 years. In 2007, I decided to take my expertise and knowledge as a labor nurse, and started my own birth doula business. I have since attended over 320 births as a certified birth doula. In June of 2016, I decided to become dual certified as a doula, and completed my training with Mercy in Action.
I believe that every laboring woman should have an experienced birth doula at her side to offer physical and emotional support during the intense work of labor. My goal is to provide labor support services to all couples regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic level. I provide guidance on coping techniques, and informational support from the date of hire. I enjoy empowering women and their partners, so they can enjoy a satisfying birth experience!
