Born to Birth Doula Services

I care that you have educated options and that you are supported, as well as, respected in whatever choice you make. 


About me 

Why I’m a Doula

After I, Renata Hale, went through a really hard labor experience and the only way I continued was because of my Doula’s support, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I wanted to be able to help someone, the way she helped me. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive, and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see every pregnancy and birth as a miracle. With my training through Birth Arts International, I feel completely honored to be able to support pregnant families within two hours of Clover, SC. Areas including, but not limited to: Gastonia, Lake Wylie, Spartanburg, York, Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Mount Holly, Charlotte, Lincolnton, and much more! Please contact me to see if I service your area!

Whether you choose a hospital, birthing center, or home birth, it doesn’t matter. If you have a natural, epidural, VBAC, or a c-section, I will support each and every choice you make. It is your birth, your way, always! I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer anything needed.                                   Included with my service:                                                                                                          • Two prenatal appointments, generally around 29 and 36 weeks, that’s so we can talk over birth plan, postpartum plan, pain management, and birthing techniques.              • One postpartum appointment.                       • 24/7 texting and/or calling.                           • I provide you with handouts and a list of local resources.                                                  • Labor and delivery support.

Postpartum Bengkung Belly Binding 

Bengkung belly binding is the process of wrapping a postpartum women's belly and hips for physical support and to helping  hasten the recovery process after childbirth. This can include warming paste to increase healing process. Belly binding is more comfortable and provides more support than your more common girdles today. You can be bound after vaginal, C-Section (must wait 4-6 weeks or until healed), Still-Birth, or miscarriage. I do provide major discounts for those who lost their baby(s). 
My packages includes:                                       • I will bind you.                                               • I teach you how to bind yourself.                  • Bengkung belly bind for you to keep.         • A video recourse for you to look back on, showing you how to bind.                                           • A warming paste to enhance healing (if desired).                                                         Prices for service:
Package #1—$75 - I visit you one time.    Package #2—$175-I visit three times Package #3–$300 - I will visit five times.                    Package #4— $15~One visit for parents who have had a miscarriage or Still-Birth.           I have a 10-20% discount for police, military, single, low-income, and teen families.                                                                         Each visit generally lasts about an hour. Please contact me for further details or questions. 


Support Expecting Parents In Need.....

Suggested Donation $200.00 - $400.00.       However, donations of any size are very much appreciated.                                                                             I am passionate about the fact that everyone deserves the support of a doula. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to have one. With the help from your generous donation, I am able to provide doula services to those that desire a doula, but may not be able to afford it. Your donation makes it to where I cover all my basic costs associated with my job such as childcare, gas, parking fees, etc. while offering my time and services free of charge.                                                        • Please contact me with any questions or for further information
