Preparing you for and supporting you through childbirth,
Because you will only give birth to this baby once
Our initial visit for doula services is an opportunity to meet face-to-face. Getting to know each other is vital. It is the best way to learn how I can best support you. Should you use me as a part of your support team, the following is the basic idea of how our time together will unfold:
Unlimited Support By Phone * email * text
During your pregnancy and 2 weeks after your birth.
We will get together for prenatal meetings (usually two) to discuss how your pregnancy is progressing, your concerns, desires, and priorities. I will help you navigate these things through educational material and “hands-on” practical information specific to you and your needs. Together, we will consider how I am best able support you and your partner.
24/7 On call support from 14 days prior to your due date & up to 14 days after your labor
Labor & Birth Support
From our agreed upon time of my arrival, aside from brief necessary breaks, I will continuously be by your side until 1 to 2 hours after you give birth. I will assist you to the best of my ability and according to your measure plans. Once the baby is born, if you have chosen to breast feed, I will help you and your baby establish a proper latch.
One Postpartum Meeting
A one hour meeting to review your birth experience, provide breast feeding, and/or newborn care support, and resources. I will also answer any questions you may have about the events surrounding your birth.
Pictures If Desired
I am not a photographer, but I will be happy to photograph your labor and birth of your baby. Providing the circumstances permit it.
