Are you expecting? Are you planning to give birth in the hospital, birth center, at home? Are you wanting a natural, medicated, or cesarean birth? Are you looking for physical relief and emotional support in labor or wanting to know your options, risks and benefits of different procedures and interventions to make the best decisions for your birth? Then, I would LOVE to be your doula to support you in your decisions for your birth!
I will be there to let you know your options, help you remember what you learned in childbirth classes, help find better positions or recommend activities in the event labor stalls or baby needs to change positions. I will encourage you and cheer you on as you labor with and birth your precious baby.
I will stay with you approximately 2 hours after birth to help establish breastfeeding. I will continue support, answering any questions you may have regarding your postpartum self, newborn baby and breastfeeding for up to 6 weeks after baby's birth .
Postpartum services can include belly binding, breastfeeding support, newborn care, sibling care, light cleaning and laundering, running errands, etc. These services are customized to the needs of my clients.
Above all, my desire is to help mothers and fathers adjust to the addition of their new bundle of joy.
