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 Doula Package will prepare you physically, psychologically and emotionally for your child's birth.
Payment plans available.
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.
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, lactation counselors, pediatricians, midwives, prenatal yoga 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.
Our practitioner will encapsulate your placenta following the birth of your child. Ingesting the placenta in capsule form may help reduce anxiety, postpartum depression, postpartum bleeding and promote better sleep. Placenta tincture included!
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 feeding, talk about your birth experience, set expectations for postpartum recovery, and suggest community resources for additional information and services.
Breastfeeding or chest feeding although natural, does not always occur naturally. It is a skill that is learned and requires support. Our doulas provide basic assistance and can refer to specialists if more advanced support is needed. If choosing to exclusively pump or bottle feed, our doulas are able to provide education and 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.
Postpartum Doula Services
Postpartum doulas are trained to assist families as they adjust to life with a new baby. The doula helps with soothing techniques, offers breast or bottle feeding support, and educates about normal newborn behavior. Your postpartum doula will provide light housework services and prepare nourishing meals.
