about my services:
As a birth doula, I provide physical, emotional, and informational support to families during pregnancy, labor, and immediately postpartum. Childbirth is an amazing and unique experience. It not only brings the birth of a baby, but also the birth of a mother!
Standard package includes:
Free initial interview/consultation
2 prenatal visits: We'll spend some time getting to know each other better. We'll discuss birth plans, vocabulary of childbirth, fears/anxieties, desires, breath techniques, massage and various positions for coping in labor.
1 free prenatal yoga class and discounts at the studios where I teach.
I am on-call 24/7 for 2 weeks before your due date and 2 weeks after, but I'm always available for questions!
Access to my resource list.
Continuous support from active labor to 1-2 hours after delivery.
Options for photos and/or video if you would like.
1-2 postpartum home visit: Just a check in! We review the birth and I can answer questions about breastfeeding, recovery etc.
Additional services available:
• Childbirth education classes.
• Private prenatal yoga sessions
• Accompaniment to OB/Midwife Appointment
• Healing bone broth and/or vegan soups
why hire a doula?
Numerous clinical studies have found that a doula’s presence at birth tends to result in shorter labors with fewer complications. These parents feel more cared for in the birthing process and have more success at adapting to a new family dynamic.
