Birth Doula

Your birth matters. It just does.

 

Having experienced, continuous companionship is an essential part of your birth team and a wonderful way to reduce anxiety, manage pain, and reach your goals for a positive birth.  From our first consult, I am here to help you identify your unique birth intentions and provide the resources and support you need to prepare.

We begin with three 1 hour long prenatal sessions where we:​

  • Get to know each other

  • Address concerns

  • Tackle common birth topics

  • Define wants and needs

  • Practice likely methods of physical support

From 37 weeks on you have access to unlimited call/text communication, including support through early or extended prodromal labor.  During active labor, I am your guide providing comfort measures including but not limited to:

  • Massage

  • Rebozo work

  • Visualizations

  • Partner Support

  • Compassionate Companionship

After delivery I will stay for 1-2 hours until your new family is settled in and ready to rest.  You will also receive 1-2 postpartum visits, depending on need.
