The birth doula support package includes one prenatal home visit at 36 weeks, continuous support throughout labor and birth and one postpartum home visit. The 36 week visit will be used to get to know each other and discuss options and preferences for the upcoming birth. I will provide continuous support throughout labor and birth, according to the birthing person's wishes. The postpartum home visit will be used for reviewing the birth and answering questions. As a doula, my role is to serve the birthing person and support person(s). I will be there to answer any calls, texts or emails throughout your pregnancy and postpartum period.
Birth is too often viewed as a scary, painful event, which leads to the anxieties of birthing people. I believe every birthing person is capable of having an empowering, positive birth experience. My goal is to support the birthing person's desires, assist them in creating the birthing environment and experience that is ideal for them and connect them to resources throughout pregnancy and postpartum. I am confident in the natural ability of birthing people, and I know how essential self-confidence in the power of your body is during labor and birth. I believe in empowering birthing people so that they feel strong, confident, safe and supported throughout labor and birth. As a doula, I am there to provide emotional and physical support, encouragement, reassurance and comfort.
