The birth of a baby is an incredible, life-changing event in a family's life. For eons, families have been attended by knowledgeable, loving, and trusted people whose sole purpose is to ensure that they are supported, cared for, and helped through the incredible process of bringing a new life into their nest, no matter how that may be.
As a doula, I know that you are trusting me to be in your most intimate spaces. I know that feeling able to rest into the support of a person who exists only to cherish your family and hold your hands through these experiences is invaluable. I am honored that you would consider allowing me to support you through your journey, and I promise never to let you feel judged or to do anything but accept your choices with enthusiasm. As a new family you know what's best for you and I promise to hold space for your choices.
My labor doula services are individualized to your family's needs. They include one 60-90 minute prenatal meeting in which I come to your home to discuss your wishes for the birth and to answer any questions you may have about the process; and a second 45-60 minute prenatal meeting in which you and I can revisit any questions or concerns you might have about your upcoming labor and birth.
I provide unlimited phone, text, and email support throughout the remainder of the pregnancy, and I join you during your labor when you request my presence. I stay with your family until approximately 60 minutes after the birth, and remain available by phone after I leave.
I provide a 60 minute postpartum follow up visit in your home or in the hospital within one week of the birth to answer questions, help with feeding and infant care, and provide support.
I would love to meet you and your family and be able to share with you how doula support can benefit your birthing experience.
My labor doula services start at $800.
