As a birth doula, I tend to all of your emotional & physical needs during your labor & birth of your baby.  I am there to work with both you and your partner to ensure your birth experience is everything you expect and hope for. I offer unlimited telephone support, a prenatal visit (1-2 hrs. at which time we discuss your birth plan, needs & any questions you may have), continuous support during active labor, birth & postpartum period, breastfeeding support and a postnatal visit (approx. 1 week after birth).  During labor, we will work with positioning using a birth ball and other helpful position changes that relieve much of the tension caused by labor, massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, hydrotherapy (the use of hot & cold compresses), visualizations & many other comfort measures. 

 

As an overnight postpartum doula, I provide unsurpassed care & support to the parents and baby throughout the first weary nights home when mother is often times healing and recovering herself.  This in itself is a very trying time for new parents, which in turn can cause unwanted stress and tension within the household.   I will tend to every need of the baby throughout the night.  I will deliver him to the nursing mother or bottle feed him myself.  Once done feeding, I will clean, change & work on getting the baby back to sleep.  I am dedicated to achieving good sleeping habits for your baby. 

Just being able to function throughout the day without sleep deprivation makes this service a "must have" for new parents.
