Birth services start with an informal consultation where we discuss what your goals are for your pregnancy and birth, as well as what your expectations are of your doula. From there, we book in an additional prenatal appointment (approximately 1.5 hours) to work on birth planning, postpartum plans, and ensure you are constantly supported.,
Starting at 37 weeks gestation, I am on call for you 24 hours a day by phone, email and text. Once labor begins, I am by your side throughout the duration and including a few hours after birth to assist with any postpartum needs, breastfeeding and take photographs of your new family.
As your doula I will visit you in your home within one week of birth (or discharge from the hospital). I will bring a small self-care related gift for mom and talk to the importance of taking care of yourself, so that you can feel refreshed and empowered to take care of your new family.
