As a Doula, I Do:
I am excited to meet with you to find out when you are due, what your desires and dreams are with this pregnancy, and how I can support you.
Phone & Email Support
From the time we have our contract complete I will be available to you for constant phone and email support.
2 Prenatal Visits
We will set up 2 prenatal visits. The first visit between 26-28 weeks to discuss your fears and dreams. The second visit will be between 35-37 weeks to discuss and practice comfort measures.
After beginning our relationship, I will be there to take the time to get to know you and to provide you with continuous emotional support and answer any and all questions you may have to provide you with the experience you desire.
As a Doula, I Do Not:
Perform any clinical tasks
~Such as blood pressure, fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, and others. I am there to provide only physical comfort and emotional support.
You will get extra personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. As a Doula, I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and immediately after birth. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer 24/7 on call support starting at 37 weeks until baby is born.
At the moment you decide you need me I will come and offer constant emotional support as well as physical support with heat pad, rebozo, massages, counter pressure and position changes along with whatever else you may need.
Postpartum follow-up visit
After birth I will stay with you until you, your partner and new baby are settled in for recovery. We will then complete our journey together with one final visit 2-3 weeks postpartum.
Make decisions for you
~I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision. I will also remind you if there is a departure from your birth plan.
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.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
My goal is to help you have your dream birth. This is your birth and I will support you in your desires and needs
If there are needs that you have that are out of my scope of practice, I have a trusted group of birth workers in my circle.
Failure of a doula to provide service.
If my failure to attend your birth is due to my error, there will be no charge for my services and I will refund the retaining fee. If it is due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control or your failure to call me, I will keep the retaining fee and there will be no refund.
