I am your Doula
What is a Doula?
A doula is a certified birth professional who walks with you and your partner through pregnancy, labor, and postpartum to offer support, education, and a strong pair of hands. I will guide you through pregnancy and labor. I will respect and advocate for your birth wishes and support you throughout the whole process.
To bring forth a baby requires all of us, mom, dad and doula working together. The three of us will become a team. You will be Empowered to make your own choices in birth with confidence! You will know what to do even if this is your first time. And if you have experienced birth before, I can help you fulfill your wishes for this baby's birth, as each one is unique.
The goals of each labor are different, but have similarities too. Every labor team needs nurturing, guidance, security, and an advocate for you and your partner.
If that sounds like a match made in heaven, then I am your Doula.
Support is provided in the form of...
I visit you in your home twice to practice labor & birth positions, relaxation for birth, comfort measures to ease tension, and show you what is in my birth bag.
You'll have my ear to listen to your fears, worries, and desires so I can dissolve the former and include the latter to create a concise and respectful birth plan any birth provider will love to read!
Please call, text, email, facetime, marco polo me whenever you want to ask questions about your pregnancy and definitely once you're in labor.
I want to get to know you and your partner so we can work symbiotically during birth. Contact me as often as you like.
It's B-DAY! Or maybe the day before...birth can last a while. Nevertheless, I will be there from active labor (details to come so you feel confident when to call me) until 2 hours after birth.
I'll make sure to take care of dad (he needs support too) so that you can focus on your baby. He's the rock star-i'm just there to remind him!
Once you're all settled in at home (3-5 days later), I'll come visit to make sure you are comfortable and feeling good. I can help with breastfeeding, cooking, even cleaning, or just holding your baby while you and dad rest.
I can give you referrals to services like lactation counselors or mental health professionals in the area if need be. You can trust me to listen to you fully and we can go through any questions or concerns you may have about anything and everything. Mostly I just want to love on you and that new squish of yours!!! ;)
