It takes a village
I assist with making plans, facilitating support systems, and brainstorming ideas for how your village can help make your perinatal experience a positive one. This is accomplished with the help of a variety of prenatal and postpartum visits, as well as a variety of tools. Read more about these tools under "The Doula Toolbox."
Free consultation and interview
First Prenatal Visit: This is an opportunity to continue building the client-doula relationship and to walk through your perfect birth. This later exercise enables us to discuss any questions or concerns you have as you approach your due date, and allows me to connect you with key resources.
Second Prenatal Visit: During the second prenatal visit, we'll explore the doula bag! I'll also talk with the partner and birthing parent about any emerging questions or concerns. During this visit, we will start working on your birth plan.
Third Prenatal Visit: We will finalize the birth plan and walk through expectations for the big day.
I am "on call" for you, starting two weeks prior to your estimated due date, until two weeks after, or whenever baby decides to make their debut. During this time, you can reach me via text message, phone, or email 24/7, with any questions or concerns you may have.
When labor begins, I will be on call to see how labor is progressing, and will meet you at your home, the hospital, or birth center, at your preference. As labor amps up, I bring with me a variety of tools and tricks of the trade, described in greater detail in "The Doula Toolbox," providing continuous support throughout the labor and birth. I also focus on providing the non-laboring partner with the comfort and freedom to take a break, to take a nap, or to seek food as they need it. Throughout the whole process, I focus on getting partners involved while supporting the laboring partner in maintaining their three R's: Relaxation, Rhythm, and Ritual.
Once at home, the focus shifts from birth to recovery and growth. I provide a reliable source of information, normalization, and shared experiences.
Taking baby home for the first time can be overwhelming. When it's time to take baby home from the hospital or birth center, I will meet you at time of discharge, offering support with heading home.
Shortly after you head home, I'll check in to do a nursing baby and mothers visit. One of the focal points of this visit is to check in on how breastfeeding is going and to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
You also will receive a postpartum visit at week two and between weeks six to eight.
