My services include a free, no obligation consultation before hiring me, two prenatal visits, unlimited phone, text, email communication, continuous labor and birth support, immediate postpartum support following birth, one or two postpartum visits with lactation support, a timeline of your birth, photos if desired (with your camera or mine), and a lending library.
Prenatal visits, in your home or location of your choosing, are included with my fee. During these appointments, we go over your plans for birth, get to know each other better, and discuss ways to get information from care providers to be better equipped for making informed decisions about your care.
From the time you ask me to come to your birth, I provide continuous support during labor, birth, and immediate postpartum. My fee includes your entire birth. I do not charge extra for longer births. If for some unforeseen reason I am unable to attend your birth (i.e. sickness, family emergency), I will do my best to provide a backup doula, at my expense.
As an experienced breastfeeding mother of eight, I am confident I can help you succeed. After your baby is born, I remain during the immediate postpartum period to help with initial latching. Additionally, I provide in home lactation support following birth. Two postpartum consultations are included in my fee.
Over the years, I've accumulated a great deal of books on the subjects of birth, breastfeeding, and newborn care. I make this library available to my clients, and also special order books that I don't own if a client expresses an interest in reading it.
