The birth of a baby is fundamentally life changing and marks the beginning of the unique relationship between parent and child. Our initial interview is an excellent opportunity for you to see if I am good fit for your family. It’s essential to find a doula that feels right for you!
I would be honored to support you through the birth of your baby and share in your most intimate of days. Let’s travel together along the road to birth, as I help you find the confidence and calm to bring your new baby into the world on your terms.
My Birth Doula package includes:
- 2 prenatal visits lasting two hours each in which we can address any concerns or fears you may have, discuss birth physiology, learn comfort measures and breastfeeding basics, as well as the different birth options available to you.
- Unlimited phone and email contact.
- 24 hour on call period two weeks either side of your due date and continuous support throughout your labour and delivery, only leaving once you are settled and have given your baby his/her first feed.
- One postnatal visit, where I offer lactation support, newborn care tips, and we can discuss your birth and your feelings about the experience.
$40/hour with a three-hour minimum shift
Not that many years ago, a new mother would have had an entire family close at hand to support her and her partner as they steer their way through the first few weeks of a new baby’s life. That is no longer the case for many people, but seeking the support of a doula can help you navigate those early days and set you on the right foot.
Postnatal Doula support is very flexible and can be tailor-made to your family’s needs. Whether you want help with breastfeeding, a chance to take a shower, or a home-cooked nourishing meal, I can help.
