Birth Doula Support

During Pregnancy

  • I come to your home for one or two prenatal visits where I will learn more about you, your priorities, hopes, and any concerns about your pregnancy and birth. We’ll talk about planning for the unexpected, pain management and coping skills, infant feeding, postpartum recovery and more!

  • I’m available by email, text, and phone from the time of hire through the duration of your pregnancy. I like to hear from you, and will check in from time-to-time to see how things are going.

  • I go on call 24/7 starting week 37. T-minus a few days or weeks until the arrival of your baby! I’m ready to go when you need me.

During Labor & Delivery

  • I provide continuous emotional, physical and informational support. During early labor, I’m there to cheer you on and provide distant support by text and phone. Once you’re ready for hands on support, I’ll join you at your home, hospital, or birth center.

  • I remain with you for one to two hours after delivery to assist with early postpartum needs, including support with initiating infant feeding and bonding.

Postpartum

  • Within two weeks of the birth, we will have one postpartum visit to discuss your birth experience, address any questions you have, and visit with you and your baby.

    Additional postpartum doula services can be discussed if you are interested!
