Doula Services

Birth Doula Support  $900

As a doula, I accompany women in labor to help encourage a safe and satisfying birth experience.  I draw on my knowledge and experience as a doula and a mother to provide emotional support, physical comfort, informational support and help to facilitate communication between mom and her caregivers.  I can provide encouragement and perspective to you and your partner (if present), make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, use comfort touch techniques, positioning and other measures for comfort.  I am independent and self-employed.  As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.

I provide 2 prenatal visits during which we can get to know each other, discuss your birth plan, your preferences regarding doula support, possible interventions, informed consent, birthing positions, comfort touch measures and address any concerns you may have. I provide phone and email support upon hire through 2 weeks postpartum (24 hour phone support from 37 weeks).  I will consider myself on-call for your birth from 2 weeks before your due date.  After your birth I will remain with you for up to two hours, until you are comfortable, your questions are answered and your family is ready for quiet time together.  I would also be happy to assist you with initial breastfeeding.
