As a doula, I provide physical, emotional, and educational support before, during, and after the birth of your baby.

Cynthia (Cindy) Fargo, CD(DONA)  Birth and Postpartum Doula serving Charlottesville, Virginia and the surrounding area

I am a companion, specifically trained to help you during pregnancy, be at your side when you give birth, stay with you through your labor, and then be available as you transition to life with your precious new baby.

My role is to encourage, educate, and be another set of (experienced) hands. I will be there to hear what you want and provide information, so you can make truly informed decisions.

I believe that pregnancy and childbirth can be the most profound event to occur in a woman’s life. It is where the physical, emotional, and spiritual all meet. I am convinced that this is a sacred time. For me, to serve as a “mother to the mother” is both an honor and a trust.

“Cindy gave me the loving and educational support I needed throughout my pregnancy and birth. She was wonderful, a guiding light on what to expect, helping me with each step of labor, birth, and postpartum. She was always there with just the right amount of information to support me through my journey. I felt totally taken care of at the right times, and she respected my need for privacy. Thank you, Cindy, for your doula-magic!”

Lilla, remembering the birth of Christian

“I had my first without a doula. Second with Cindy. I wish I had always had a doula. Cindy was always a step ahead and made it easy for me. I felt secure and I knew someone was my advocate for when I was in labor and didn’t have the energy to have a voice.”
