Doula Services

 I accompany families in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. We draw on our professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with staff to make sure you have the resources you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor. We provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning, and other techniques for comfort.

I offer the following birth doula services:

  • Free initial consultation/interview

  • Two face-to-face prenatal visits to discuss goals/options and prepare for birth

  • Telephone, text, and email support throughout pregnancy and the early months of parenthood

  • Referrals as needed to community or other resources

  • On-call services ’round the clock from 310 weeks until the birth of your baby

  • Continuous labor support, from early labor through the birth of your baby

  • Postpartum support for 1-2 hours following the birth

  • Initial breastfeeding encouragement and support

  • One or two postpartum follow-up in the early days after your birth (depending on need)
