Joyful Birth Package includes the following 4 items:

1. NO-OBLIGATION,
FREE CONSULTATION

We'll meet for about an hour to discuss the details of doula care. I will outline:

  • what you can expect from me as your doula

  • We can discuss concerns including:

    • last weeks of pregnancy

    • goals for your labor

    • preparation for parenthood

If you decide to invest in my services, we'll plan another meeting and continue from there.

2. BEFORE LABOR:
LEARNING ABOUT YOUR NEEDS

We will have 1-2 prenatal meetings to iron out details:

  • We'll craft a birth plan wish list

  • Establish your pain medication preferences 

  • Establish labor coping techniques.

During your pregnancy, I am available 24/7 by phone, text or email to discuss ongoing concerns or to debrief after a caregiver appointment.

3. DURING LABOR

MEETING YOUR NEEDS

Call me once labor has begun. I will join you at an agreed time and stay with you for the duration of your labor. I will provide specialized techniques including:

  • emotional and physical support

  • massage & relaxation

  • suggestions for positions to facilitate labor

  • guidance with coping skills to manage labor

I will guide you, encourage you and provide your partner and family the care they need until the birth of your baby. After the birth, I will stay an hour or two. I will help with initial breastfeeding and support your new family as you bond.

4. AFTER LABOR

SUPPORTING YOU

Congratulations! To wrap-up my support, we will meet 2-3 weeks after your baby's birth to:

  • debrief on your experience

  • answer any questions regarding infant care 

  • offer support with breastfeeding or other postpartum issues.

  • talk about the timeline of events

I provide a written story of the highlights of your labor. I will ask a few questions about your recovery, refer necessary services and do an informal assessment of postpartum mood issues.
