Labor/Birth doula service include:
*One free consultation. This first meeting typically takes place in your home or a nearby coffee shop/cafe. This is a casual meeting to get to know each other, briefly discuss your birthing desires, and ask questions to find if we are a good match for working together.
*Two prenatal visits, each lasting typically between 2-3 hours. (will vary by client need). During these visits we will discuss birth plans, comfort measures, relaxation techniques, labor positions, labor preparation and postpartum preparation, as well as anything else clients and partners wish to talk about.
*Phone, email, and text support throughout your pregnancy.
*Use of my ever growing lending library of books pertaining to pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, postpartum, infant care, new fathers/parents, childbirth class, and partner support.
*On call for you 24/7 from 38 weeks of pregnancy through birth.
*Active labor support in home and hospital until 1-2 hours after birth.
*If desired I can assist in photographing the labor when my efforts are not needed elsewhere at the moment. I am not a birth photographer and this is optional, but I am willing to take some extra photographs during labor.
*One postpartum visit (different then postpartum doula services) to see how you are doing, how baby and family are doing, help process the birth experience, answer questions and provide information as needed.
*Additional prenatal or postpartum visits can be added for a hourly fee.
