THE JOYFUL BIRTH PACKAGE
As a respected Doula, I take pride in providing you and your partner with care, understanding, information and support throughout your pregnancy and the birthing process. Our initial meeting- a free, no obligation consultation- will help us both decide if working together is a good fit, as every pregnancy and partnership is unique. Every Birth Package includes the following:
NO OBLIGATION FREE CONSULTATION
getting to know each other...
We'll meet for an hour or so to discuss the details of doula care. I will explain exactly what you can expect from me as your doula. We can discuss your concerns about the last weeks of your pregancy, worries about labor, and preparation for parenthood. If you decide you can benefit from my support, we'll plan another meeting and continue from there.
every step of the way
We will have 1-2 prenatal meetings to discuss what you want your birth to look like and how I can facilitate that. We'll craft a birth plan wishlist, discuss your pain medication preferences and labor coping techniques. After that I am available 24/7 by phone, text or email through the end of your pregnancy to discuss your ongoing concerns or debrief after a caregiver appointment.
informative and compassionate
Call me when you believe labor has begun. I will join you when we decide you need me and stay with you for the duration of your labor. I will be there providing emotional and physical guidance using massage, relaxation, positioning and other doula techniques. I will guide you, encourage you and provide your partner and family with the care they need until the birth of your baby. After the birth, I will stay for another hour or two, supporting your new family as you bond and help with initial breastfeeding.
you did it!
Congratulations! My support is wrapping up. We will meet once or twice; usually 2-3 weeks after your baby's birth to debrief on the experience, answer your questions regarding infant care and to offer support with breastfeeding or other postpartum issues. We will talk about the timeline of events with the birth and I can provide a written story of the highlights of your labor to compare with your own recollection. I will ask a few questions about your recovery, refer necessary services and do an informal assessment of any postpartum mood issues
