What is a Professional Birth Doula? How can she help me?
As your doula, I will accompany you in labor to help ensure a satisfying birth experience. I will provide emotional support and physical comfort, and informational support to help assist you in making informed choices during labor.
I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, positioning and other comfort measures. I can massage away your hurts. I am independently self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver, hospital/birth center or midwife.
From the time you hire me, I am on call 24/7 for you!
YOU DESERVE A DOULA!
DO YOU WANT TO GIFT A NEW MOM DOULA SERVICES? GIFT CERTIFICATES ARE AVAILABLE FOR FULL OR PARTIAL PAYMENT OF SERVICES.
"If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it."
Mothercare Birth Doula
You will have the opportunity to talk to me about anything on your mind. I will answer your questions in a clear, easy to understand way. If you are undecided about hiring a doula, but need some help planning your hospital birth, writing your birth plan and learning about evidence-based options during labor, a Birth Consultation will help you make the right decisions. The Birth Consultation lasts two (2) hours.
Additional consultation hours billed per hour, if needed.
If you choose to hire me as your doula, I'll apply the consultation fee towards your doula services fee.
Includes two prenatal visits, one Skype or phone visit to create your Birth Plan, will be with you from the time you call, until your baby is born home (midwife in attendance) or hospital. One two-hour postpartum visit.
