BIRTH DOULA. Certified professional doula by your side throughout pregnancy and your birthing. I am available to you from the moment we start working together so that you will always have someone by your side when you need it. I am on call 24/7 from 38 weeks until you give birth. I support all birth choices and outcomes. It is important to develop a relationship and get to know you during the prenatal period.

Extensive prenatal care and a close relationship so that you feel comfortable, confident, prepared and supported throughout pregnancy, birthing and the postpartum period. Phone and email contact throughout your pregnancy and postpartum period for questions. An exclusive birth preference consultation tailored to your birth location and desires to help you meet your wishes for your birth. Learn your birthing options and the risks/benefits related to your options. Discuss questions to ask your provider during pregnancy and your birthing time. You and your birth partner will learn a variety of comfort measures, therapeutic relief, relaxation techniques, active birthing movements, and pushing positions. Photographs optional during any stages of birthing and after baby is born. I am in contact with you early in labor and join you when you decide you would like me to, meeting you at your home or birth place depending on your preference. I provide continuous support through your birthing, providing physical comfort, emotional support, and information to assist you in decision-making. As your doula I support both you and your birth partner, the choices you make, offer suggestions, information, assistance, and reassurance. I establish a relationship with the birth team, your providers, remind everyone of your preferences, and help you communicate with them so that you can have the information you need to make decisions. I remain with you for one to two hours postpartum to assist with initial postpartum needs and provide feeding support. I meet with you for one postpartum follow-up visit within fourteen days of birth. This visit is optional and an opportunity to discuss and process your birth experience. We also cover breastfeeding (if you choose) and basic infant care.

Everything But the Birth Doula- Individualized preparation for your family for those who already have additional support planned for the birth, such as a mother, sibling, friend etc, but still want individualized prenatal preparation from an experienced birth professional and someone to reach out to for support. This is also a great option when couples decide to birth themselves, but the partner feels more comfortable knowing there is someone available to remind them of coping strategies or as a informational support if interventions are suggested. As your Birth Consultant you have 24/7 access to a highly trained and experienced professional from your 36th week through birthing. I am a member of your team and support you through the last weeks of your pregnancy and through labor.
*Please note I will not be on call to attend your birth.
