Every family is unique. I offer a variety of doula services personalized for each birthing experience. Regardless of what you choose, together, we will dive into your beliefs and expectations around labor and birth. We will explore your physical and emotional strengths and limitations to ensure you’re completely prepared. Please get in touch to learn more.
Birth Doula Support
As your doula, I am committed to instilling confidence, reducing fear, and helping unlock your inner strength as you prepare to grow your family. Your investment includes:
~Unbiased, evidence-based information and emotional support throughout pregnancy via phone, text, or email from the moment our contract is signed and the deposit is received
~1-2 prenatal meetups to discuss your values and needs in childbirth (virtual or in-person based on your comfort level)
~Assistance in creating your birth plan
~24/7 on-call support from 38 weeks until birth
~Continuous labor support** from the moment you notify me until your precious one is born
~ Approximately 2 hours of immediate postpartum care and help with initial breastfeeding
~1 postpartum meetup (virtual or in-person based on your comfort level) to help you and your partner process your birth experience and answer questions or fill in gaps of knowledge as needed
*As of April 2021, all area hospitals and birth centers are allowing at least one partner and one support person (such as a doula) for each birthing woman. Some allow more. Please check with your individual planned place of birth for the most current visitor guidelines.*
A La Carte Consulting
Just need a little extra reassurance or guidance aside from the full doula package? We offer hourly rates for consulting. These hours can be used for birth plan preparation, postpartum plan preparation, assistance in finding a provider that will support you in the birth that you desire, and much more.
Time must be scheduled in advance and used in a minimum of 30-minute increments.
