THE GENTLE BIRTH DOULA PACKAGE INCLUDES:
This is an opportunity to get to know eachother and discuss your preferences for birth and expectations from my role as your doula.
2 prenatal visits
These visits take place in the comfort of your own home. The first prenatal visit occurs around the 30th week of pregnancy; the second around week 35. These visits are designed to provide you detailed information on undisturbed birth, risks and benefits of medical interventions, and basic comfort measures to be used throughout. We also construct a personalized birth and coping plan, so that I as doula have deep understanding on how to best support you.
Unlimited phone and email communication
I will provide unlimited phone/text and email support throughout the pregnancy. No question, inquiry or concern is insignificant. I welcome all communication as that is the best way for us to get to know each other.
On call- 24/7
Starting at about two weeks before your ESTIMATED due date, I will be on call 24 hour per day, 7 days a week. Also, there will be arrangements for a backup doula, should I happen to be attending another birth.
Continuous labor support
Whenever you voice your desire for my presence, I will arrive to your home. I will support you continuously throughout labor, for as long as it may take. I will offer comfort measures based on your preferences, such as massage, aromatherapy, rebozo, possible positions, and more.
Immediate postpartum support
I will be there to support you for a few hours after birth to help with anything you may need, be it information on newborn care, or breastfeeding initiation support. I will leave once you are comfortable and need nothing else but to bond with your new family.
After birth, I will visit you once within the first week, and if you desire, the second time during the second week. During these 2 hour visits, we will review your birthing experience and I will support you in any way you may need me, from breastfeeding to newborn care, and more.
Postpartum phone and email communication
After the postpartum visits, I will support you by phone and email for as long as you may need me.
