BIRTH DOULA SERVICES:
I always offer a complementary initial meeting to determine if we are a good fit for each other. Contact me today to schedule a meeting.
I also believe that every woman who wants a doula should have one. Even if you don't think you can afford a doula please don’t hesitate to reach out! Let's talk and figure something out!
As a birth doula my goal is to help you have the birth you want, whatever that means for you. I can provide physical comfort measures, emotional support and information to help in decision making. This package includes:
One or two planning meetings to discuss the details of your birth plan and expectations
I will be “on call” for you, and available for text, email or phone support, for anything you are feeling, questions, or if you just want to check in
Attendance at your birth. I will come to your home to assist with early labor, and if you are birthing outside the home will help with transport to the hospital/birth center
During the birth I provide physical comfort, as well as emotional support and information to assist in your decision making
I will stay with you for 1-2 hours after the birth of your baby to assist with initial breast feeding and to help you settle in
One 1-2 hour long postpartum visit to talk about the birth and discuss best practices for recovery and breast feeding
Back-up doula if necessary: If for any (unlikely) reason I am unable to attend your birth I have back-up doulas working with me who will attend your entire birth
