Labor Doula Services
Labor support includes unlimited phone/email support, 1-2 prenatal visits in your home (or location of your choice,) support during your labor, and 1 postpartum visit in your home.
Our prenatal time will be spent doing things like discussing your specific fears and/or concerns about your birth, researching any topics you would like more information about, practicing comfort measures for labor, and writing a birth plan.
For your labor: I can offer my assistance at your home prior to arriving at your place of birth if you wish. If you are more comfortable having me meet you at your place of birth, I can do that too. I will be with you for the duration of your labor and birth, as well as for 1-2 hours afterwards.
Your postpartum visit will happen in your home within the first two weeks after baby is born. This visit will be to go over the details of your birth, discuss breastfeeding issues if there are any, and offer you additional resources (new mommy groups, breastfeeding support groups, etc.)
