I am happy to meet with you and your partner, if applicable, to explore whether I might be a good fit on your birth team. We can meet in a coffee shop or similar public place. Email me to schedule.
Phone & Email Support:
Once I receive your agreement and retainer fee (50% of the birth doula fee), I am available to you via phone and email. I love for my clients to contact me with questions, concerns, and celebrations as it builds our relationship. Once you are 38 weeks, I am on-call and can be reached day or night.
Two Prenatal Visits:
We will meet two times before your birth to build our relationship and discuss your preferences about labor and birth. We will also explore and discuss your priorities, fears or concerns, your birth plan and to plan how we might best work together. I also want to know your own best ways of coping with pain and fatigue and how you and your partner foresee working together.
Continuous Labor Support:
By the time labor begins, we are a "well-oiled birth team machine". Please give me a "heads-up" when you think you are in labor. We will stay in close phone contact in early labor and then I will join you when you want my in-person support until the birth.
I will stay with you 1-2 hours after baby is born to support you in initiating nursing (if desired) and ensure that you and your partner have food on the way.
Postpartum Follow-up Visit:
I will check in periodically in the days/weeks following the birth via text and phone calls. I typically stop by for a visit 1-2 weeks postpartum - whenever is convenient for you. We discuss the birth, feeding, postpartum care, etc.
