Please know that if you think that you cannot afford a Doula, I can help you find ways that make it affordable for you. I can work on a sliding scale or payment plan for those in need.
I feel that every woman should have a Doula by their side and I will try to help in anyway that I can to make that possible.
A doula can reduce your chance of cesarean by up to 40%.
Birth Doula Support begins a few weeks prior to birth. It consists of 2 home visits that last from 1 to 2 hours long. After 35 weeks along, I am on call 24/7, giving you the support you need. I will provide support for you during your entire labor at home and in the hospital (if you are having a hospital birth) up to about 2 hours after giving birth. I will also set up a home visit a week or two after the baby is born to see how things are going.
Childbirth Education Class: Some of the topics covered are:
The use of positions for pain management and progression of labor
Stages of labor and delivery
Changes during pregnancy
Birth and postpartum plans
Car seat safety
Complex situations such as cesarean birth, inductions, pain relief medications, and VBACS
Home care for mom and baby after delivery
I can personalize your class and go around your busy schedules.
Breastfeeding Counseling: The first visit will be done in person so I can observe the mom and the baby. There is a breastfeeding support group that is open to Nursing Moms and to those who are pregnant and wanting to breastfeeding after delivery.
