Your child's birth should be a happy and peaceful memory, something that leaves you feeling empowered and confident. It should be a positive experience that you will always remember. Our Birth Doula Packages will prepare you physically, psychologically and emotionally for your child's birth.
We will discover your fears, goals and dreams for your labor and delivery. During the first visit we will discuss your options for birth and talk about your preferences. We will talk about what you should bring to the hospital/birth center or how to prepare for a home birth. The second visit is the dress rehearsal. We will go over how to identify the start of labor, when to call your doula and when to contact your doctor/midwife. We will discuss labor options and practice pain management techniques. Your doula will teach you and your partner how to manage early labor, before you need advanced support.
Childbirth Education Classes
We offer private childbirth education classes to prepare our clients for pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Our instructor will teach comfort measures, the stages of labor, and teach your partner how to support you during labor.
You can call, text or email your doula with questions, fears or concerns. Additionally, our team of doulas can make referrals whenever you need other birth professionals: photographers, massage therapists, chiropractors, placenta encapsulation specialists, lactation counselors, pediatricians, midwives, childbirth education classes, etc.
Postpartum Belly Binding
This ancient art commonly practiced in West Africa, South America and Asia can help your mid-section return to pre-pregnancy size, promote healing of abdominal separation and provide 360 degrees of support to your internal organs as they return to their pre-pregnancy positions.
Your doula will remain with you from the time you request her presence either at your home or your birth location, until shortly after birth. She will assist with labor positioning, comfort measures, and coaching. Your doula will help you understand your options and provide the information you need to navigate childbirth and to make informed decisions about your care.
Our doulas provide support and information to newly formed families as they adjust to life with a newborn. We assist with breastfeeding, talk about your birth experience, set expectations for postpartum recovery, and suggest community resources for additional information and services.
Breastfeeding, although natural, does not always occur naturally. It is a skill that is learned and requires support. Our doulas provide basic breastfeeding assistance and can refer to specialists if more advanced support is needed.
