Hiring me as your doula:
As your Doula, I will help you to have the birth experience that you want; whatever that may be. My commitment is always to you and supporting your needs throughout your experience.
I am not a medical professional but rather a professionally trained labor support person committed to helping you make empowered choices about childbirth, and dedicated to assisting you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.
I offer physical and emotional support, research and information, and a platform for decision making. I will support you and your family through your birth with kindness and respect. You cannot offend me or make a decision that I won’t support.
We will schedule and meet for two prenatal visits at your home, where we can discuss your birth wishes, signs and stages of labor, comfort measures such as breathing, coping and relaxation techniques, practice laboring positions, discuss the roles of all of your labor support people, and answer any questions or concerns you have about your pregnancy, birth, or postpartum period.
I offer 24-hour phone and email support throughout your pregnancy and I am on-call from the time you hire me until you have your baby. Following the birth, I will provide initial help with breastfeeding and any continued support during your first hours postpartum.
In your first week postpartum, I will come to your home to admire your baby, make sure that your transition to parenthood is going smoothly and will provide referrals to available community resources if needed.
I would be delighted to share this experience with you. Please call me to set up a complementary consultation!
