During Pregnancy:

Once I'm hired on as your doula,  you and your partner have unlimited phone, text, or email support throughout the pregnancy. Typically we do an intake meeting shortly after the contract is signed, at least one virtual meeting, and at least one in-person meeting prior to birth*.  I also do a short, virtual weekly check-in with families starting at 36 weeks. 

During these meetings, we can discuss a wide range of topics, such as:

  • Options that are available to you before and during birth
  • Physiology of birth + stages of labor 
  • Fear cleansing around birth
  • Discover pressure relief tactics feel best to your baby and body
  • Connect to evidence-based resources around birthing
  • Connect with local organizations and businesses that support growing families (newborn photography, newborn parent support groups, organzations that support postpartum mental health, pelvic floor physical therapy, and more)
  • Bringing Baby home
  • And anything that comes up along the way!

*Some families prefer to meet more often, and that is fine by me!

During Birth

When your birthing time begins, I will either meet you in your home or at the birthing place. I will continue to support you and your partner through the entire birth
 
Birth support looks different for every family. Through each birthing wave, I will gently guide you and your partner by offering pressure relief tactics, such as:

  • Birth positioning to optimize baby's engagement with the pelvis
  • Birth hypnosis (I'm a certified birth hypnosis doula with Hypnobabies)
  • Physical counter-pressure and light massage
  • Heat/cold therapy
  • Rebozo work
  • Aromatherapy
  • And much more

After Birth

After Baby is born, I stay for a little while to assist with skin-to-skin bonding, the first feeding, take photos of your first moments together, and feed you some light nourishment. Then I leave y'all to enjoy your sweet baby.

The next time I see you will be at your postpartum visit back at the home. My birth doula fee includes two in-home postpartum visits.

During these visits, I can help you:

  • Process your birth experience
  • Answer any questions you may have about newborns and soothing
  • Connect to resources for breastfeeding support
  • Take care of Baby so you can nap or play with older children in the home
  • Help with meal preparation
  • And more!

 

Birth, to me, is everything it means to be alive in one experience.

I believe birth truly can be a space where you and your partner fall even deeper in love, a space where you unlock a power within yourself that maybe you didn't know was there before, a space where you feel honored and anchored, and of course a space where you can bask in the highest surge of oxytocin a body can produce.

It's truly incredible.

And you deserve all the support to fully make this experience your own, to feel empowered,
and to find joy along the way. My goal through it all is to offer gentle, knowledgeable, compassionate support for you and your family during this special time. 

I support families of all constellations who birth in a variety of birth settings. There's no wrong way to birth, and my only agenda is to create space so that you may feel understood, grounded, and empowered through this process.

Let's meet this baby!
