The first meeting is a time for us to get to know each other and if we want to work together. It is very important that all parties involved feel a level of connection as this work is very sacred and personal.
Consultations are generally done via Zoom or phone call if needed. This initial meeting is 15-20 minutes.
Phone & Email Support
Available throughout the birthing process.
2-3 Prenatal Visits
The objective of our prenatal visits is to establish a rapport with one another. This time also allows for us to discuss your expectations of your partner, myself, and anyone else who may be attending your birth. The more we discuss this in advance, the better I will be able to fulfill my role to support you through this amazing journey.
As a professional Doula, I’ve received training from a certified organization, and maintain my skills and knowledge through continued education and research. You can learn more about my qualifications and experience by contacting me directly.
As a Doula, I Do Not:
Perform any clinical tasks
This is a sacred and personal experience. I will be present during your entire labor process to provide you with physical, emotional, and informational support via the methods we previously discussed at our prenatal visits.
Make decisions for you but rather empower you with the tools that you need to make informed decisions
Baby’s first feeding Support
I will remain with you and your family 1-2 hours after birth, until you are comfortable, your family is ready for quiet time together, and if breastfeeding, it has been successfully established.
Speak to the staff on your behalf but rather encourage commuication with the staff to ensure informed decisions can be made regarding your labor and delivery.
Postpartum follow-up visit
I will visit your family after the birth of your baby to discuss how you are feeling, how the baby is feeding/sleeping, and answer any questions you may have.
An additional postpartum package is available upon request.
Diagnose any medical conditions or interpret any medical diagnoses or clinical results.
A list of community referrals will be given at the first prenatal visit.
