Pregnancy
& Birth Experience

Doula support is special and unique. I serve all birthing individuals and provide support through each stage of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. After all services are done, I still connect with my families as the years go by. 

The first steps towards working with me is completing the inquiry form and setting up a Zoom or phone interview. After we get to know each other, we'll decide if we're a great fit to make the perfect team!

Pregnancy Preparation 

 

  • Complimentary 30 minute consultation to see if we're a good fit.

  • 2 prenatal appointments, one virtual and one in person.  During these meetings we will become acquainted, discuss your priorities, any fears or concerns, best ways you cope with pain and fatigue, and how you want your partner to support you. We will go in depth about childbirth education and common medical interventions. We will practice labor techniques, birth affirmations, how to prepare for the final weeks of pregnancy,  and complete a birth wish.

  • Unlimited phone, text or email during your pregnancy.

  • Debriefing after your appointments, ultrasounds, any early hospital stays or just needing an additional ear to listen to.

  • Evidence-Based Birth information provided and you are welcomed to borrow books from my personal library for more information about birth, labor, postpartum, and parenting. 

  • Complementary Gift and Postpartum Guide. 

Birth Support 

  • I am on call from the 38th week of your pregnancy and on. During birth I will bring tools such as essential oils, massage rollers, birthing scarf, fan, twinkle lights to make it cozy and more items in order to help support your labor the best way I can. 

  • Unlimited emotional and physical support on your Birth day.

  • Photography of your birth and golden hour moments.

  • Assistance with feedings and postpartum adjustments.

 

Postpartum Support 

  • I will remain with you for 1-2 hours after birth to ensure bonding time with your newborn. 

  • Ongoing text, phone, and email support during the 4th Trimester.

  • In-home postpartum visit once you are settled in at home with your newborn.

  • Go over of your birth story, emotional check in, newborn care questions, and any additional care that you may need.

  • Referrals to any professionals in your community, such as: pelvic floor therapy, therapists, chiropractors, etc., feel free to reach out as I have a list of trusted professionals I can refer to help you.
