My Doula services include an initial interview, for us to have a chance to get to know one another and make sure we are a good fit! We will then set up a minimum of 2 prenatal visits. At the first appointment we will discuss your birth plan, as well as any wishes or concerns you may have. Your second prenatal visit we will discuss different comfort measures, labor positions and finalize anything else we need to for your special day! It is very important to me that we build a strong rapport before your delivery. Depending on what trimester you’re in I prefer to meet with you and your partner every 4-6 weeks.
I offer telephone support throughout your pregnancy and will be on call 24/7 for two weeks prior to your due date and two weeks following the arrival of your baby. When your special day arrives, I will provide continuous support during labor, delivery and postpartum until your family is comfortably settled. After your special day, I will meet with you once again to answer any questions you may have, and to process your birth experience.
What a Birth Doula does not do:
1. Perform Clinical tasks, such as blood pressure, fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, etc. I am there to provide only physical comfort and emotional support.
2. Make decisions for you. I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision.
3. Speak to the staff on your behalf. I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, but you or your partner will speak directly to the clinical staff.
