Birth Doula Services Include

My birth doula package includes: two prenatal visits, unlimited phone, text, and email support,

on call for labor from weeks 38- 42, continuous labor support, one postpartum doula visit and one postpartum Biodynamic Craniosacral session. See details below!

Two prenatal visits

The prenatal visits give me a chance to get to know you and your partner and to learn what's really important to you for this birth process. Together we will decide how I can best support you. I believe information is empowering, so I want to ensure that you know all your options in order to make the informed decisions that are right for you. The prenatal meetings are an important time to begin to prime your body and mind for the powerful nature of labor. In all of our interactions, I encourage you to trust your instincts and tap into your inner strength and wisdom.

 

Topics include:

  • Comfort measures including beneficial positions and hands-on support

  • Options for pain management

  • Practical mindfulness tools for remaining calm and centered during labor

  • Simple movements and stretches to prepare your body for labor

  • What to expect at a hospital birth

  • Common interventions

  • Advocating for yourself

  • Discussing options and creating a birth plan

  • Basics of breastfeeding

  • Postpartum support

  • Resources for new parents

Unlimited phone, text, and email support from the time of hire

 

On call labor support from week 38 through week 42 (or until the birth)

Call me when you go into labor and I’ll be ready when you need me!

 

Continuous labor support

I will be there by your side from the moment you need my support, through the birth of the baby, and for an hour or two after the birth until you are settled and comfortable.

 

One postpartum doula visit

The postpartum visit is your chance to process your birth story and ask any questions about the sequence of events that unfolded. We also check in about feeding, sleeping, and making sure you are getting the support you need. I am a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor, so I am qualified to help with any basic breastfeeding questions or difficulties you may be having. 

One postpartum Biodynamic Craniosacral session for baby and family

During the early postpartum period, you are adjusting to a whole new life! A BCST session offers an opportunity to slow down, calm your nervous system, welcome your little one into the world, and resolve any physical or emotional difficulties that arose for you or your baby during or after the birth. A BCST session can also unwind any restrictions in your baby's physical structure helping to resolve colic, indigestion, acid reflux, and breastfeeding latch difficulties. 

 

My doula services can be combined with additional Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy sessions before and after birth.
