I provide whatever support is necessary throughout your pregnancy, referring if needed, for any needs outside of a doula's scope of practice. Your questions will be answered and your educational requests will be met with evidence based research, to inform YOUR decision making with regard to your pregnancy and birth journey.
If you have your baby at home, I also assist in making lists of supplies needed (Your midwife usually provides her own list), and help you prepare your home and family for the realities of your planned home birth. Most often, I stay a bit longer during the immediate postpartum period when you may need a meal cooked for you and prepare perineal comfort pads and peri bottle herbs for your comfort.
The benefits of hiring a doula are numerous and well documented.
Such benefits include shorter labor and less need for interventions such as forceps, vacuum extraction, and cesarean.
I offer several birth doula services: The doula package with readiness sessions, placenta encapsulation, photography, belly casting, and belly art.
You can trust that your birth experience and personal matters will be handled with professionalism, integrity, and the utmost discretion. I commit to be available on-call starting at 38 weeks and provide continuous labor support beginning either at home or in your chosen birth place. Being a source of comfort to a mother during this very important experience is an honor. I do so with respect and reverence.
