As Your Doula:
This will be a meeting to provide information about doula service and allow you to decide if we are a good match. As it is essential to know that you and your chosen doula are a good fit for one another, this initial consultation is always free of charge.
Phone & Email Support
I will be available by phone or text for you or your partner any time throughout pregnancy and postpartum. You are welcome and encouraged to contact me after visits to your healthcare providers. You are encouraged to call to ask questions about pregnancy or early labor, or call even if you just need emotional support.
2 Prenatal Visits
Two meetings in which we discover your fears and hopes for your labor. We will discuss several pain management techniques and coping skills such as: breathing, several labor positions for birthing, and relaxation techniques. We'll also discuss how to use the Rebozo, aromatherapy, massage and acupressure, hydrotherapy, and positive affirmations. We will review when to call your doula and when it's time to head to the hospital or to call the midwife if you are having a home birth.
My goal is to create the best possible birthing experience. Your comfort, safety, and well being are my main objectives. We will implement the techniques we've discussed during our prenatal visits. I will also facilitate communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and her clinical care providers to make sure you are aware of what is happening at all times during your labor.
Baby’s first feeding Support
As your doula I will aide with initial latch-on after birth and provide breastfeeding support pre- and post-birth.
Postpartum follow-up visit
We will arrange to meet once 3-14 days postpartum and we'll
discuss mother's health, well-being, and recovery. We can discuss the birth experience and I'll answer any questions regarding newborn care. I'll also recommend resources or referrals if needed.
