I guide you through all stages of giving birth. This includes two prenatal appointments, email/phone support, continuous labor support and a postpartum session that includes a Reiki healing.
Free Consultation: It’s important to find a good fit when looking for a doula to help you with one of the most intimate experiences of your life. We’ll meet at your home or at a local coffee shop and discuss the vision that you have for your birth, and answer any questions you may have for me.
Standard Birth Services
Two Prenatal Appointments: These appointments are tailored toward your needs. In these sessions I get to know you better, go over your preferences for birth, and help you with your birth plan. I’ll show you different labor positions and get a feel for how you liked to be coached. We’ll also create a postpartum plan so you feel ready for after your baby arrives.
Email and phone support: From the moment you hire me, I will answer any questions that arise or make referrals for your needs.
On call labor support: Starting two weeks before your due date, I am on call for you 24/7 until you give birth.
Continuous labor support: Once you’ve decided that you would like me to join you in active labor, I come to your home to help you labor or meet you directly at the hospital or birth center.
Once your baby is born, I stay for 1-2 hours to ensure you and baby are settled in and to provide feeding support.
One Postpartum Visit: Together we go over your birth experience, see how infant feeding and care is going, and make any referrals for additional postpartum support.
Reiki Healing: To enhance postpartum healing, mom receives a Reiki healing from me at home.
Back-up Doula: I always have a back-up doula in the unlikely event that I’m unable to attend your birth.
