Birth Doula Support

Birth Planning

After beginning our relationship with a meet and greet, we are committed to the well-being of your growing family, available throughout your entire pregnancy as well as after giving birth. During labor, your doula will be there to provide you with continuous emotional and physical support, and answer any and all questions you may have.

With our birth support package, you will receive one free consult and up to two prenatal visits where we can get to know one another and prepare for your birth. You receive continuous, hands on support during your birth, and assistance with initial breastfeeding. To conclude our time together, we will plan one postpartum visit to celebrate your beautiful baby, discuss your birth, and make a plan for any additional support you may need. 

Some people just want a little extra help sifting through all of their birthing options - we get it! Birth planning is stand-alone service where we spend one to two hours discussing different choices you'll have to make and planning your perfect birth. Of course, no one can predict what will happen during a birth, but knowing your options and having a plan will help you feel confident to tackle whatever comes your way!

Antepartum Doula

Virtual Doula

If you're not quite sure how you're going to fit all the things you need to do into one pregnancy, consider antepartum doula services! We can help support you by answering questions, preparing your baby's clothing (wash, dry, put away), run errands for you, and help with nursery prep. This service is available as an hourly service or in a more comprehensive package. It is particularly helpful for expectant parents without family close by or who are on bed rest.

If you just need help with basic education and finding answers to questions, our virtual doula package is for you! This option includes up to 2 hours of customized childbirth education online, birth planning, and unlimited phone, text, and email support throughout your pregnancy.

Childbirth Education

Postpartum Doula

As a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, I present evidence-based information in a fun and memorable way. You'll go into your birth feeling well-informed and empowered to take charge of your experience. You'll learn about physiologic birth, coping techniques, common interventions, and basic newborn care. Private lessons can be tailored to your needs.

A postpartum doula is like having your best friend, sister, and mom rolled into one - without the opinions. My goal is to help you grow in your confidence as your family adjusts to life with a newborn, offering evidence-based education and support. I can help with newborn care while you rest for a bit, breastfeeding support, light household chores and organization, and can even run some errands. Postpartum doula support helps you get the best start to parenthood by having someone focusing entirely on your well-being! You can book just a few hours or a large package - whatever works best for your family!
