Do you offer postpartum support?
Yes! As your labor doula, I will stay with you until baby's first feeding in order to be sure you and your family are comfortable and settling in.
As your postpartum doula, I will be available to 'mother the mother'. My goal is to ensure that you and your family are adjusting to your new lives with a newborn. I can help with feeding, light housekeeping, meal prep, assisting with newborn care, sibling care, referrals to local resources, and baby soothing techniques.
How do you deal with complications at birth?
I will support you and your family through any complications that may arise. I will not provide medical interventions or make medical decisions on your behalf. I will provide emotional support for you and your birth team. I will remind you that our goal is for a safe delivery. I will be your biggest cheerleader through any hurdles that may occur during pregnancy or delivery.
Does a doula replace nursing staff?
No. A doula is a woman's helper and my job is to support you in having a healthy and safe birth. I cannot give medical advice, make medical decisions on your behalf, or give medical interventions. I will strive to help give you evidence based research so that you can make the best decisions for your family.
Do you offer payment plans or discounts?
Yes! Contact me for available options.
