Birth and Postpartum Services and Support

Every birth is special. Whether it takes place the hospital or at home, each is beautiful and deserving of celebration. No matter how you birth your baby, everyone can benefit from having an experienced Doula present at the moment of delivery. Contact me to learn more about my services, and how I can help you bring your own child into this beautiful world.

About Me

Who I Am

My Name is DeRita. I knew from my first birthing experience with my daughter that I wanted to be apart of bringing life into the world. No matter how many women I meet, see birthing stories or videos on TV and Instagram, it amazes me how astounding the woman's body is. Being a mother of two kids, I know firsthand how beautiful the birthing process can be. It is a process that allows a woman to show strength and endurance she never knew existed within. 

As a partner, mother, and grandmother, I know the importance of a well-balanced village and a responsible team. I aim to be just that for you. Providing you and your loved ones with the education, advocacy, respect, emotional & physical support, and care that you need to create the balance you desire for yourself and your family. As a member of your team, I will assist you in setting and achieving your goals and do my best to ensure your birth is an empowering and blessed experience.

 I currently live in Lexington, KY, where I was born and raised. My hobbies are spending quality time with my five grandbabies, watching football, reading, and writing. I love my family, and I'm grateful for the quality time I spend with them.

Birthing Guidance

Receive extra personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. As a Doula. I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after your birth. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer support as needed.

DeRita has been amazing to work with. She goes above and beyond in providing care and calming my anxiety. She was available by phone, text or email and would respond immediately regardless of the time of day. DeRita's postpartum services are amazing and I totally trust her with my baby.

The most special time we shared was after the birth of my child when Rita came for a home visit. She is so personable and you know her love for what she does in genuine. Through all the chaos of my first birth we forgot to ask someone to film it. So the only memory I had was etched in my mind. (At least I thought) But when you have a caring Doula like I do, nothing is impossible. She had actually filmed the birth and as an added touched placed it on a flash drive for us. I love my Doula!!

Derita helped stabilize my feelings as well as my husband, both physical and emotional. She supplied my husband and I the tools necessary to have a beauty birthing experience. I believe doula's are essential in childbirth and if you want a doula who truly cares and will travel to different states to assist you, then you must contact Derita. We just adore her and adopted her into our family. She's more than a doula, She is now FAMILY.
