The birth of a child is one of the most memorable days of one's life. Doulas are here to walk you through it. From holding space, to holding your hips through each contraction, our support is unique in that we are there just for you and your family! Whatever you may need and want during your birth, we help to make possible-- day or night, in person or by phone. doulas are your go-to, consistent 3rd party support with really juicy information to help you navigate your pregnancy, birth and postpartum time. We are a resource, ear to hear you, shoulder to lean on, and we typically come with chocolate! This is the future of maternity care and medicine -- and makes SUCH a difference.
BIRTH DOULA PACKAGE
Our birth doula package includes the following:
• A consultation for us to get to know one another and see if we are a good fit for each other. We always tell our perspective clients to choose the doula(s) they feel most comfortable with. We will be spending a lot of intimate time together!
• Informational & emotional support from the time of hire via email, phone and text. You can reach out for guidance, resources or to process what's happening for you and your family. If we can help, we will! If it's outside our scope of practice, we'll make sure to find you the support you need.
• 1-2 prenatal visits in your home to prepare for childbirth, infant feeding and the immediate postpartum period.
• Your doula will be officially on call for you 24/7 from your 37th week of pregnancy until birth. Meaning you *can* call in the middle of the night if you are in labor. If you go into labor before 37 weeks, please still call, and we'll make every effort to attend your birth, or send backup if necessary.
• We will join you when you are in labor and ready for support and stay with you until your baby is born, then stay 1-2 hours after (or until you are settled and comfortable). During this time we can offer breastfeeding support for the first latch, and we always make sure you and your partner have a tasty meal in your hands or on the way.
• A postpartum visit in your home (or place of birth) anytime between 2 days and 2 weeks after your baby is born.
Returning Clients: Fees may be different now than when we worked together in the past. Please contact me to discuss a fee that feels right for us both!
