In-Person Doula Support

Giving birth. It’s a feat of physical and emotional strength while also being one of the most natural things that we as humans do, but for most of us we are going in pretty blind as far as what to expect.   What will a contraction really feel like? How will I know when to go to the hospital? How will I manage when things get intense? What if my doctor asks to intervene with something I wasn’t planning on? Can my partner support me the way I will need, when I don’t even know what that is yet?! Maybe it’s time to consider a doula. 

Like a guide on a huge mountain trek or a training group for a marathon, a doula gives you emotional support, education and advice as someone who has been here before. Published data indicate that one of the most effective labor tools to improve labor and delivery outcomes is the continuous presence of support personnel, such as a doula!

In-Person Birth Support

Virtual Support

In-person doula support allows for the most intimate connection and can offer hands-on physical support for the duration of your labor. But that in-person support may not be for everyone. That’s why I also offer virtual doula services! The perfect option if your birth room is full, your budget doesn’t allow for in-person support or you just want that peace of mind that a trusted expert is just a text away.

Postpartum Support

Postpartum Doulas are expertly trained professionals who provide in-home care for your growing family. They offer much more than just baby care; they provide comprehensive care for the entire family during the crucial first days and weeks after welcoming a new baby. Studies have shown that having a strong support system in place can make this transition much easier for both parents and babies. Postpartum Doulas focus on nurturing the parents and “mothering the mother,” adopting a family-centered, community-oriented approach to caregiving. They take into account the physical, emotional, and practical needs of the entire family to ensure a smooth and stress-free start.

Services may include:

  • newborn care: baby wearing, diapering, bathing, feeding, & comforting
  • emotional and physical support
  • private yoga and breathwork sessions*
  • light tidying
  • sibling care and integration
  • nourishing snack and meal* preparation
  • referrals to local resources
  • errand runs
