As your birth doula I will provide 2 - 3 prenatal appointments in a place that you feel the safest.
Each prenatal will be a custom made birth with postpartum preparation classes, emotional support and consist of trust building activities for us as a team. From the moment the contract is signed I will be on call for you 24/7.
Once you are in labor I will come to support you in any way that you need. This may include but is certainly not limited to: cooking, setting the ambiance, running a bath, filling the birth tub, making sure your bag is packed with everything you need, supporting to ease your nerves, massaging you, making suggestions when appropriate, reassuring you of what normal looks like, identifying the perfect time to call your midwife or to transfer to your birthing facility.
I will stay with you for the duration of your labor. No matter if it's 3 mins or 3 days, never charging more for longer labors. I will stay with you for the immediate postpartum for about 4 hours. During this sacred time i can support in advocating for you, educating you on procedures, infant feeding support, and cleaning. Please inquire about sliding scale opportunities.
