Birth Doula Package
2 Prenatal Visits
We will discover your fears, goals and dreams for your labor and delivery. We will create your birth plan or review your plan if you already have one. We will discuss what you should bring to the hospital/birth center or how to prepare for a homebirth. We will go over how to identify the start of labor, when to call me and when to contact your doctor/midwife. We will discuss labor options and practice pain management techniques. We will also review birth positions.
I will remain with you from the time you request my presence either at your home or your birth location, until shortly after birth.
This final home visit offers an opportunity for us to talk about your birth experience, provide additional breastfeeding support and suggest community resources for other information and services.
Postpartum Belly Binding
This ancient art commonly practiced in West Africa, South America and Asia can help your uterus return to pre-pregnancy size, aid in the healing of abdominal separation and provide support to your internal organs as they return to their pre-pregnancy positions.
24-Hour On-Call Period
I am available to you 24 hours a day from the time you are 38 weeks pregnant until two weeks after your child's birth. If you experience pre-term delivery, I will make every effort to attend your birth or provide backup care.
I will be available by phone, email or text for you or your partner any time throughout pregnancy and during the first two weeks postpartum. I encourage you to contact me after prenatal appointments with your healthcare provider. We can talk about testing, ultrasounds, or your overall care. You may also contact me for additional information, emotional support, or alternative treatment options.
I can help you prepare for breastfeeding before birth and verify that your baby is latched on properly after birth.
I maintain a library of pregnancy, birth, birth support and breastfeeding books. You are be welcome to borrow any of the titles throughout your pregnancy.
