Birth Doula Services
We provide continuous labor support, as well as prenatal and postpartum guidance. After our initial consultation, we typically meet with clients 1-3 times for prenatal visits. At these visits we help discuss birth options, preferences and well-being. We also help you prepare emotionally and physically for labor. We are available to clients for unlimited phone consultations and email correspondence. We agree to be on-call at 36 weeks gestation and remain available to attend your labor. It is our goal to get to you within 60 minutes or less from the time you call requesting our presence. When active labor begins, we agree to meet you at Labor and Delivery. After the birth of your baby, we will usually remain 1-2 hours as you recover. We typically make one postpartum visit within 1-2 days, either in the hospital or at home. In the event of a planned C-section, arrangements may be made for extra postpartum home visits. During these visits we typically discuss your birth experience, breastfeeding (if desired), baby care basics, adjusting to your newborn and any other concerns you may have. You may also add any extra services at any time during your pregnancy.
