As a Doula, I Do Not:
Your first prenatal visit is free, so we can discuss your birth plan, goals and initial questions to determine if we will be a good match for your journey. I want to be able to support you in all ways possible.
2 Prenatal Visits
We will schedule two prenatal visits to discuss any thoughts and concerns, prep the baby's space and create a packing list for your big moment. More visits available for an additional fee.
Phone & Email Support
I am available to you via email on an unlimited basis. Telephone services are available during regular business hours of 8 AM to 8 PM until your 37th week. From there, I am on call to you 24/7 in case of active labor.
I am trained in best positioning, empathetic touch and use of essential oils to make your experience as comfortable as possible. I am trained in rebozo techniques and breast feeding support. I can even make a playlist for your ideal birth atmosphere. Most importantly however, I can keep you informed so you can best advocate for yourself through out your journey.
I am available to you from the point of active labor to first feeding. How I hold space is to walk with you on your journey, providing a judgement free environment and supporting you 100% I am there to care for you and your loved ones through out your labor, and keep you feeling confident, safe and informed.
