After attending a free consultation with me, we will meet again on two separate occasions. During those two visits, you will share your wishes and desires for your birth. We will create a birth plan together that meets all of your needs and work alongside each other to prepare you to reach those goals. The visits are in your home, and there is no time limit. You will be able to guide the talks, and I will share information to meet you where you are and fill in any gaps. We will do a childbirth crash course during one of our visits and you will learn hands-on techniques to use during your labor.
Once you sign my contract, I am on call for you 24/7 awaiting your call that labor has begun. I will meet you where you are and start providing support in whatever way is needed. I use many different elements in my work as a Doula such as massage, acupressure, visual guided meditations, affirmations, physical, emotional, and spiritual support. I am there to do anything to help your labor go as smoothly as possible.
If you would like I can also take photos/video of the experience as well as a detailed time log of events.
I stay with you through the birth and then leave when you are settled and ready to rest.
Within the first two weeks, you will receive two more visits from me. At these visits, we will go through any pictures that were taken and talk about your birth story. We will discuss feeding choices, and I can help you with breastfeeding, pumping, bottle feeding, and everything in between. We will also go over newborn care and postpartum care for yourself.
Please visit the Postpartum page to see what types of things I offer for after the birth!
After those last two visits, I am available as a Postpartum Doula, and I can continue to work with you, or I am always available to you as a sounding board or for advice, and as a friend.
