Labor Support

As a Birth Doula I will help you get ready for your baby’s arrival with 2 prenatal visits where we become better acquainted, build your birth plan and familiarize you and your birth partner with comfort/relaxation methods. Provide continuous doula support through labor and one postpartum follow-up meeting. As your doula I will be on-call 24 hours a day from 37-42 weeks and guarantee a back-up doula if needed. Communication starts at the day of hire till about 6 weeks postpartum. I do limit the number of births I take on per month to ensure our availability.
