As a Doula, I Do Not:
Upon our initial contact my first consultation is free. If hired as your doula then we will discuss contract and payments.
2 Prenatal Visits
I can go with you to 2 or more prenatal visits It is recommended to attend at least once in order to establish contact with your doctor or midwife. Basically a meet & greet
Phone & Email Support
As your doula feel free to call, text or email me with questions or concerns about your pregnancy. I am at your disposal 24/7
I am certified through DONA International.
Certified in AromaTouch Technique
When your body begins to signal that labor is truly here…I will at your request come to your home & help you labor there as long as you feel comfortable, or meet you at the hospital. I will bring all my doula tricks with me and remain with you throughout labor and delivery and up to 2 hours after delivery. During your labor I will be taking notes on your’s and the baby’s progress. Afterwards I will compile these notes into a more readable format for you to keep as a momento for your baby book.
Baby’s first feeding Support
If you plan to breastfeed, I am ready and willing to assist in your initial feeding to advise on positioning the baby and also advise “latching on correctly”
If your refer my services to someone and they hire me with a deposit, I will give you a $50 referral fee
Perform any clinical tasks
I am not a trained medical professional
Make decisions for you
My job is to educate and inform prior to labor, however I cannot speak for you
Speak to the staff on your behalf
It is not the role of a doula to speak to the staff on your behalf.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
If our relationship is or becomes as such that we talk freely then we will of course just be ourselves.
Postpartum follow-up visit
Approximately 2 weeks after you & baby are settled in at home I will come visit to give you a storyline of my notes and see your precious bundle of joy
