Interview

 

  • Complementary meet and greet where you are able to ask questions, get to know me and determine if I am the doula for you!

 

Prenatal

 

  • Two prenatal appointments in your home, if hired before 34 weeks. If hired after, I will hold one, 2 hour visit together. 

  • The first prenatal is typically held between 28 and 30 weeks gestation. During the visit, we will; 

    • Learn your desires, hopes, plans, concerns and fears for your birthing day. 

    • Help you cordinate your ideal birth preferences and make a birth plan, if desired. 

    • Learn what role your partner wants to play during labor and birth and how we can best support that. 

    • Inform and encourage you of your options relating to pregnancy, labor and birth.

  • The second prenatal is typically held between 35 and 37 weeks gestation. During the visit we will; 

    • Obtain any updates about your pregnancy. 

    • Refresh what you found to work well during your birthing classes. 

    • Discuss your postpartum plan for support. 

    • Learn how you would like to feed your baby and come up with a plan. 

    • Teach coping techniques and comfort measures to help you and your partner prepare for labor.

On-call and 100% available to your birthing needs beginning at 38 weeks gestation. 

 

Continous support once you need a doula in labor until 1-2 hours after the birth of your child(ren). 

 

Postpartum

 

  • Two postpartum visits. First visit is typically 2-3 days after the birth of your baby(s) or 2-3 days after you get home from the hospital. The second is 2-4 weeks after your birth. 

  • The first postpartum visit is brief, usually 20-30 minutes, so that you can get back to resting and bonding with your baby. During this visit we will;

    • Screen for postpartum mood disorders and make referrals, if needed. 

    • Support and answer questions about feeding your baby(s) and make referrals, if needed. 

    • Check in with you and partner about self care.

    • Share local resources with you that may be helpful.
