After an initial phone consultation, I will meet up with you to discuss your general birth plan, understand your preferences, and talk about what you expect of me as your birth doula. I will also provide any wanted resources in our area for pregnancy and post-partum related services, midwives, massage/chiropractors, lactation consultants, etc!
The second visit we will explore physical pain-management measures, massage, and I will show your partner how we can be a team to assist you during those intense moments. We can discuss postpartum doula needs as well for those needing extra care and support.
I will be there to assist you with pain management, breathing and relaxation, and guidance for those intense contractions. I will be emotionally available for you and adhere to your choices we discussed in our prenatal visits. I will help you advocate for yourself and your choices, and work with your partner to calm fears and allow you to focus.
Having a baby is not easy, and often the person actually giving birth, and their needs, are overlooked by friends and family once baby arrives. Within the first two weeks after the birth of your baby, the postpartum doula would come to your home and check on you, to process the birth experience and allow you to talk without hesitation on how you are feeling. I also can do some simple house-keeping tasks, assist with breastfeeding, and answer any questions.

Do you need help with household duties, watching baby while you rest or shower? Need general support? How about a more in-depth one-on-one class to really prepare you for birth?
I can talk with you about your concerns, help you with household duties, and/or care for your baby while you rest or practice self-care.
The time, energy, and care that I could provide for you may be very beneficial to your mental, physical, and emotional health on those days when caring for a newborn is especially challenging.
Now offering one-on-one childbirth preparation classes with you and your partner. I will come to you and we will learn about the stages of labor and what to expect.

If you are interested in having your placenta encapsulated for a rejuvenating postpartum practice in order to restore the body of vital nutrients, I can take care of your placenta for you!
