Doula Services

Initial Consult

Informal get together at my office where we will meet, go over details and see if we're the right fit! 

 

2 Prenatal Appointments

One appointment will take place at my office so that we may complete a private, prenatal breastfeeding class (if choosing to breastfeed) and one will be at your home so that I'm familiar with where I would come to you in early labor, if you choose to have me present during that time. We'll go over how you are feeling, answer questions, put together a birth plan, if you haven't already and make sure that you're prepared for the big day and after! 

 

Birth Plan Development

If you are attending Lamaze classes, which I highly recommend, you will likely work on preparing your birth and newborn plan during class. If not, we will go over all of the options and standards of medical and midwifery care and prepare a plan based on your wishes and decisions for yourself and your baby. 

 

Unlimited Support via Text Email or Call 

I'm available to answer any questions that you might have from the moment you choose me as your doula. 

 

On Call Availability From Week 38 Until You Deliver

Anytime .. day or night .. weekday or weekend. I'm here for you. 

 

Back Up Doula

While I have every expectation that I will be present at your birth, it is industry standard and best practice to have back ups in place in the event of  emergency, sickness, or unforseen circumstances beyond my control. If for any reason, I can not attend your birth, an amazing back up doula will be available to you. You'll have an option to meet your back up doula, at your request.

 

Emotional and Physical Support From Active Labor Until 1-2 Hours After Delivery

We'll go over more details during our consultation and prenatal appointments and make a solid plan for when early labor begins. The level of support that every family wants and needs is different and we'll tailor your experience to you personally! 

 

Initial Breastfeeding/Bottle Feeding Support

I'll be available to help you with that first latch or first feeding, to answer questions and offer support in the days after baby is born and to provide one in home lactation visit within the first few days after birth to head off any potential issues. 

 

Postpartum Appointment/ Birth Story Review

At your postpartum appointment, we will talk through your birth experience, answer any questions that you might have, talk about resources or referrals that you might be interested in. And generally chat like the old friends that we've become through this experience.
