We have outlined the services that we offer but, what does a doula really do?

It is often a difficult task to put into words how doulas support. Allow us to dig a little deeper...

Birth Doula 

Birth happens in so many different ways and no two births are the same! We have designed our support to meet you where you are at that moment; without judgment & without bias. We have worked hard to figure out a way to support our clients professionally, with unbiased and evidence-based information yet thickly weaved with love and compassion. We believe we have mastered that skill. This birth is about YOU. No matter how you envision it happening, we are ready to fully support you and your families needs! Our birth doula packages include: 

  • Complimentary consultation to learn about you, your partner and your lifestyle

  • On-call doula-team from the moment you sign your contract

  • Unlimited phone/email support for the duration of your pregnancy and into the early postpartum period

  • Local resources and connections as needed

  • Evidence-based information as requested to aid in the decision making process

  • One, in depth, prenatal visit to discuss how we can help you prepare for your birth

  • Continuous labor support

  • Postpartum support immediately following the birth

  • Assistance in breastfeeding/latch following the birth (if breastfeeding)

  • Continuity of care with on-call text/email support for up to 4 weeks

Postpartum Doula

Hiring a Postpartum Doula is an effective way to help ensure a smooth transition as you welcome your new baby into your home. If this is your first baby or your fifth, you deserve support in this, sometimes overwhelming, time. You can trust that, with us, your parenting choices and decisions will be respected. We don't just want you to survive these precious days, we want you to ENJOY them! There are 3 pillars of support that doulas offer. Here, we have listed some examples of what each pillar of support might look like and what our Postpartum Packages can include:

  • Complimentary consultation to learn about your lifestyle & parenting choices in order to customize your postpartum support. 

  • Assistance & guidance with newborn care 

  • Light household tasks

  • Help with processing the birth experience

  • Loving care for your newborn while you sleep, shower, complete tasks uninterrupted or simply binge on Netflix

  • Assist with outings 

  • Sibling care

  • Meal preparation to keep you nourished and hydrated 

  • Support with breastfeeding/bottle feeding

  • Companionship & validation of your fears, frustrations & joys

  • Assistance with parent/baby bonding

Postpartum packages are customizable. Our helping hands are available for daytime or overnight support.
