Feel free to call, text or email to schedule an interview. To make sure I am available for your big day I take a limited number of clients monthly. I recommend scheduling an interview as soon as you decide having a Doula is right for you.
Once we have interviewed and feel we want to move forward in working together I will provide you with a contract. Payment is due at that time (payment arrangements can be made if necessary).
Approximately two months prior to your due date we will schedule our first prenatal visit. The second visit will follow about one month before your due date. Each visit is usually about an hour long.
The average amount of time I spend with a first time mother in labor is 20-25 hours. After the baby is born I will help you to get your newborn on the breast. You may still call anytime with breastfeeding or other questions you have.
Approximately one to six weeks after the birth (it is up to you) I will come to your house for a postpartum follow-up visit. This meeting is to close out our cycle, check-in on breastfeeding and if you would like a newborn massage.
Birth is an unpredictable process. In the event you are experiencing pre-term labor adjustments to the appointment timing can be made.
My job is to advocate for you! Please don't hesitate to bring up all expectations and desires during our visits for your ideal birth.
I am prepared to come to your side on a moment's notice and committed to staying with you throughout the entire process of birthing your baby.
I will come to your home during labor, or meet you at the hospital whenever you are ready and whichever is most appropriate for your labor.
I am on call for you 24/7 (including holidays)
