Birth Doula Package
The first 60 minute consultation is free of charge to you. This meeting is just to get a good feel for each other and to see if I could be a good fit for your experience.
Phone & Email Support
I am available to my mamas via phone, text or email for any questions that weren't covered during our prenatal visits. I will make my best effort to get back to you as soon as possible.
I offer up to 3 prenatal visits where I cover a wide variety of topics. These visits are structured around your needs and include sharing information with your partner on comfort measures for birth, a birth planning session, self-advocacy, exercises for optimal fetal positioning, and more!
I offer continous labor support starting from the time we agree to meet through the immediate postpartum. I also include an extra visit, to help with optimal fetal positioning, and the birthing person's comfort, for extended periods of prodromal labor that is affecting sleep. My role is to complement your birth team and help them participate as much or as little as you, the mother, and your team would like. I can also take photos for you, with your permission, as long as it doesn't interfere with my ability to doula you. I will also support your efforts to breastfeed, if needed.
evidence based birth®
As a professional member and instructor for Evidence Based Birth®, you will have free access to Evidence Based Birth®'s online parents class, as well as pdfs, and a guarantee that your doula is up-to-date on the most current research available for maternity care.
Postpartum follow-up visits
I offer up to 2 daytime postpartum visits or 1 overnight visit help to process your birth story as well as help with light housework, breastfeeding support, and newborn care. I can provide you with detailed birth notes written from my perspective, upon request. I also still consider myself on-call for your family until your milk comes in, to assist in managing engorgement, if needed.
I am part of a village of professionals that cover a wide range of medical, physical, informational, and emotional needs for mamas during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum periods. As part of my community, you also have access to my village!
postpartum Doula Package
Free 60 minute consultation. Upon hire, we'll do a 2 hour intake in your home where you show me the ropes of how your household typically runs. I offer 4 hour minimum shifts where I help with light housework, provide breastfeeding support, assist in newborn care, and aid in the birthing person's postpartum recovery. I also offer support to your partner and members of your village who are helping to raise your baby by modeling care that is most helpful to the baby, birthing person, and your lifestyle. My job is to love you, your baby, and your support where you're at in your journey to building your family.
Daytime shift availability is typically Monday-Friday, 5pm-9pm and Sundays 2pm-6pm. Please contact me for availability for daytime support.
Free 60 minute consultation. Upon hire, we'll do a 2 hour intake in your home where you show me the ropes of how your household typically runs. I offer 8 hour overnight shifts where I help with light (quiet!) housework, provide breastfeeding support, assist in newborn care, and aid in the birthing person's postpartum recovery. But, mostly, overnight support is about helping parents get longer stretches of sleep! Sleep is an extremely important aspect of postpartum recovery for everyone that shares the home with you.
