Each of our clients has two prenatal visits in the comfort of their own home.

She will also spend time getting to know you and and building a close, caring relationship with you. She’ll teach you exercises to help ease common pregnancy discomforts and practice comfort measures with you that will aid in relaxation during your birth.

If you choose our Premium Birth Doula package, you will also get a 4 hour postpartum prep session in your home. This session includes education on what to expect for both you and baby during the postpartum period and assistance preparing for postpartum. This assistance can include a variety of things, such as nursery set up, meal prep, breastfeeding education, preparation for the mother’s recovery (setting up needed supplies in the bathroom, for nursing, etc.), and organizing a meal train for after the birth.
Your doula will come to you when you want her during labor and will remain with you continuously throughout labor and birth, providing emotional, physical, and information support and working with you and your birth team to create a welcoming, respectful, kind, and supportive space in which to welcome your baby.
