Services

I offer a complimentary consultation so we have the chance to meet in person where you can ask any questions you may have. This gives us a chance to decide if we're a good fit for each other!

Once hired, as our birth doula I am honored to provide you with the following services:

Prenatal

We will meet for one or two prenatal meetings in your home. We will discuss your birthing preferences, prepare a birth plan, and discuss/practice pain management techniques. I provide unlimited phone and email support throughout your pregnancy. I can provide suggestions on prenatal exercises and referrals for alternative prenatal therapies if needed. I will be on call 24/7 for you from week 38 until you deliver.

During Labor and Delivery

I will have phone contact with you during early labor and join you when you decide you need me to, meeting you at your home, hospital or birth center depending on your preference and logistics at that time. During labor I will provide continuos physical & emotional support, and information to assist you in decision-making. I will support your partner/support person, offering suggestions, information, assistance, and reassurance. I will serve as a liaison between you and the hospital/birth center care team—establishing rapport, reminding them of your preferences, and helping you ask questions to ensure you have the information you need to make decisions.

I will remain with you for approximately one to two hours postpartum to assist with initiating breastfeeding and other early postpartum needs. I will be available by phone and email to answer any questions you have during your postpartum time and to offer referrals for other resources as needed.

Postpartum

I will provide a follow-up visit in your home within the first week postpartum to process your birth experience, answer any questions you have, assist with breastfeeding or make appropriate referrals based on your needs at this time.

Please contact me for my fees.
