Services

Free Consultation 

I offer a free consultation. We can talk by phone and meet in person

We will take enough time that you feel comfortable. 

Phone & Email Support 

Once you hire me as your Doula I will be available for anything you need. We can communicate through text,email and over the phone throughout the remainder of your pregnancy. I will be on call starting two weeks prior to your due date. I will stay on call till you deliver. 

3 Prenatal Visits 

I like to meet with each client three times during pregnancy. During our first visit I will be teaching you Spinningbabies techniques. Each visit will last up to two hours. During this time we will be reviewing Spinning Babies,Talking about pregnancy and birth. I will answer any question you have. We will see where baby is through Belly Mapping and what else we may need to work on.

As a Doula, I  Do Not:

During labor 

I will join you in labor when you feel you need me. We can also work over the phone and through text. During our prenatal visits we will talk about what labor looks like. I can help you decide when it's time to move to the hospital or when to call in the midwife.

Perform any clinical tasks

I am not medical staff. I will try to help you with anything you don't understand. I do not perform any medical procedures.

Baby’s first feeding Support 

After you give birth and if baby is ready I can help you with breastfeeding. Helping baby to latch is one of the scariest times after birth.  

Postpartum follow-up visit 

After baby is born I will come for a postpartum visit. This visit will last for a couple of hours. During this time we will work on soothing, sleeping, breastfeeding, pumping and any other questions you may have.

Make decisions for you 

During your prenatal visits we are going to talk about what your wishes are. Any questions you may have I will answer at this time. Together we can set up a birth plan you feel comfortable with. 

Speak to the staff on your behalf

We will talk about how you or your partner can advocate for yourself.

I like to make everyone a part of your team. This is going to make your birth more positive.

Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience

It is so important for you to have your own story. I am thankful to be  a part of it. Giving birth and becoming a parent is your first step to the many decisions you will make during your child's life.  Your positive birth experience is the first step to you bonding with your baby and the healthy relationship you will have.
