Birth Doula Support
I offer emotional, physical, and informational support to birthing people and their partners as well as people welcoming babies through surrogacy. I am honored to support people through these tender and powerful processes, whether they choose to labor at home, in a hospital, or at a birthing center. The first step of my services is a free consultation, which may take place in person or virtually. It's an opportunity for us to get to know each other and decide if we are a good fit. Birth doula services include the following, at a rate of $1550.
Two in-home prenatal visits (2 hours each). During these visits we will discuss the processes of labor and birth, the roles of partner or family support, and your desires, fears, hopes, and plans surrounding birth. I will work to connect you with resources and information you seek to support you in this process and practice comfort measures with you.
Labor and Birth
I will be on-call for you 24 hours / day starting at 38 weeks, and will join you during your labor as soon as you ask me to. I will be your advocate, facilitate partner support, and assist with comfort measures. I also offer birth photography if you choose. I will stay with you through birth and the first few hours postpartum as you establish infant feeding.
1 in-home postpartum visit (1-2 hours). Within the first week after you welcome your baby/babies, I will come to you for a postpartum visit, during which I may assist with baby care, infant feeding, meal prep for you and your family, light cleaning, and baby wearing. We can also discuss your birth experience, postpartum so far, and any support resources you are seeking.
Text, Call, and Email Support
Throughout the duration of our working relationship, I will be available to you via text, call, and e-mail for informational support.
* Every birthing person deserves support. Please contact me to discuss payment plan options and alternative resources.
