Once we are under contract, you will:
-Have access to 24/7 emotional and informational support to help you prepare for your birth, by phone or email contact, throughout your entire pregnancy.
-Have full use of my extensive lending library full of books on the topics of: Pregnancy, Labor, Birth, Newborn Care, and Gentle Parenting Techniques.
-If you would like to birth in the water, I have a professional grade Birth Pool available for your use - included in services! Purchase of liner is sold separately and required. ($20 or $40, depending on which liner you would like.)
-I will meet you and your partner for an in-home prenatal appointment around 37 weeks to formulate a birth plan, discuss your pain-management preferences, teach your husband many hands-on comfort techniques to use during labor and talk over any concerns/fears/hopes.
-When you go into labor, I will meet you wherever you feel the most comfortable and safe. We will labor together until it is time to transfer to your birthing space. I will encourage a peaceful and supportive environment where you feel loved, safe, supported and empowered.
-You will be fully supported through all of the stages of labor and birth. Once your baby is born, I will help with getting baby skin to skin and latched for breastfeeding as soon as you are ready. I will remain with you up until your family is ready to have private time to bond with your precious newborn.
-I will come back to you to do a postpartum visit where we will talk over your experience. I can help with breastfeeding and refer you out to the appropriate resources if you are having trouble.
-At our postpartum visit I will bring back your finished Placenta Encapsulation capsules, a canvas print and umbilical cord keepsake. This is my free gift to you!
We will start out by doing a complementary, no-obligation interview. During this interview you can ask me any questions that would help you better understand what my role of a doula will be. We'll discuss your previous birth experiences and get to know each other! I prefer for your partner to be there as well. I want to make him feel comfortable and involved.
