Birth Doula Services: $800
Lets meet, ask me questions, see if we click. This is a huge part of your life, and you need to be sure that you are comfortable with me supporting you, and being apart of your birthing experience.
Phone & Email Support
I'm here to answer questions about anything with your pregnancy, labour, birth, breastfeeding, postpartum. I am here to provide you with resources that I cannot specifically help you with, and most of all encourage you, and to calm your nerves.
1 Prenatal Visit
At this time we will go over your medical/pregnancy history, we will sign our contract, go over exactly how you see me playing a part in your labour and what you can expect from me. We will plan for how I will best serve you and your partner. We will go over your birth preferences, when you can expect me to arrive for ongoing labour support. We will also do a bit of an educational part where I explain the different stages of labor, and what you can expect to happen during each stage, as well as how I help during those stages.
I am on call for you two weeks before your due date, up until two weeks after. That means I stay within an hour of you, my phone is on me at all times, and all hours. Once you have called me, we will decide when you need me, and where to meet ( your house, or birth place depending on progress ) Then I work my magic!
As a Doula, and a Childbirth Educator, I Do Not:
Perform any clinical tasks
Make decisions for you
Speak to the staff on your behalf
Baby’s first feeding Support
I will stay with you for 30 minutes to 2 hours after delivery to assist with the initial breastfeed, helping with any concerns with latching, or just any questions you may have regarding breastfeeding.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
Postpartum follow-up visit
I will come to your house usually 5-7 days postpartum. I will again help with any breastfeeding concerns, and answer any questions. I will also help with any additional resources you may need after.
Childbirth Education Services:
I offer private Childbirth Education classes. These classes are in the privacy of your own home! There is 12 hours worth of evidence-based information broken down into evening, weekend, weekdays, 2 hour long classes, or 3 hour long classes. That's the thing you can make the schedule!!
