The Birth Doula Package is a comprehensive service designed to offer parents ongoing assistance throughout pregnancy, labour, birth, and the immediate postpartum. The package includes the following:
Birth Doula Support
- Free consultation: An important step before deciding to hire a birth doula. It is an opportunity to get to know one another and will ensure we would both be comfortable working together. This is a great chance to be able to ask the questions that can help you determine if I am the right doula for you.
- 2 prenatal visits: This is a time for us to get to know each other so I may better understand your needs. I provide educational information, we discuss your birth preferences and concerns, creating a birth vision. We will discuss comfort measures and will explore anything and everything as it seems relevant to you.
- Access to my extensive lending library
- Access to educational information, resources and referrals that are reserved for my clients only
- On-call services beginning in your 37th week.
- At-home labour support from when you need me: This is for home births and for those who want to labour in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible before transitioning to the hospital.
- Continuous and knowledgeable labour and birth support at home or in the hospital: including physical comfort methods, labour enhancement techniques, emotional support, effective positioning, informational support, and advocacy support to help you communicate your labour and birth preferences.
- Immediate postpartum support to assist with breastfeeding and assist in facilitating and encouraging bonding
- Two in-home postpartum visits focused on integrating the birth experience, answering lingering questions, assisting with breastfeeding and newborn care, and discussing your transition into parenthood.
- On-call breastfeeding support for the first 2 weeks
The fees charged are an investment. Please contact me to discuss. I can work with women and partners that might need a payment plan.
