Call to set up a time to meet and chat. Ask me questions, and get to know me.
Phone & Email Support
Through your pregnancy, you can easily contact me by phone, text, or email. As the big day approaches, I remain on-call 24/7 to join you in labor.
Prenatal visits cover various topics regarding pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We will also use the time to create a "Birth Vision" based on your desires for the birth of your child.
When labor begins, let me know when you would like me to join you at your home or hospital. I will provide continual support from active labor through the first nursing session.
As a Doula, I Do Not:
Baby’s first feeding Support
After the birth, I will remain with your for an hour or two to help with breastfeeding, chest-feeding, or other infant feeding methods, as needed.
Perform any clinical tasks
Make decisions for you
Project my own beliefs onto your experience
Postpartum follow-up visit
Within the first week, and again around six weeks or so, we will schedule a time to visit and talk about the birth and how recovery and parenthood is going. I'm also available via phone or text during the postpartum period if you need resources or information before or between meetings.
Postpartum Doula Support
Postpartum doulas are professionals who come to your home after the birth of your baby to support you and honor the postpartum period. I can assist with feeding struggles, hold baby while you shower or nap, provide referrals as needed, provide information on newborn care, and much more.
