Birthing Barakat Welcomes You

Full Spectrum Doula, Childbirth Education, and Breastfeeding Services

Who I Am 

My name is Rose Macomber and I am a Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, and Childbirth Educator certified by International Doula Institute. As a doula, I feel honored to share my expertise and serve families in and around Central and Eastern Connecticut. I approach birth and the postpartum period holistically, offering physical and emotional support as well as advocacy for birthing women and their families.

I have always been passionate about women's health, including all things pregnancy and birth-related. After graduating from the University of Connecticut with a B.S. in Health Sciences, I decided I wanted to become a midwife to best help birthing women and their families. While I am still on my journey to becoming a midwife, I discovered that being a doula is a perfect way to help families on my journey and theirs!

Services Offered

Pregnancy, Birth, and Postpartum Support

Birth Doula Package

Regardless of how you choose to deliver, the birth doula package is available to support you through the planning, questions, anxieties, and challenges that may arise. With a variety of resources and expertise, the birth doula package will guide you through pregnancy, labor, and birth.

Pregnancy Only Support

If you decide you don't want a doula present at your birth, but you'd still like access to the expertise of a doula throughout your pregnancy, this option is for you. Offering all of the same support as our birth doula package, minus the birth, we are here to guide you through your pregnancy with confidence.

Postpartum Support

Customized to fit the needs of you and your family, this postpartum support is truly designed to help in whatever way you may need. From emotional support to household maintenance, postpartum support is designed to give you rest and peace of mind during this blissful, challenging time.

Overnight Postpartum Support

Expert nighttime care that provides rest, care, and confidence for parents following the birth. Overnight care is customized to each family's needs and supports their chosen feeding preferences and routines. Can be offered in conjunction with birth doula and/or daytime postpartum support.
