My Services

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

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.

Labor Support

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.

Lactation Support

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.

Lending Library

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.

What do my customers say?

Check out some snippets of the feedback I've gotten from clients I have served:

She was also a wonderful resource and encouragement when I was struggling with breastfeeding those first few weeks. I cannot say enough good things about her. I highly recommend her as a doula and I will be hiring her again. Brandi
She was such a calming influence on the entire experience. She applied counter pressure techniques that made my contractions manageable (this required hours of constantly applying pressure on my back/hips...she is STRONG and never once stopped to take a break even though I am sure she was tired). Jenna
Amelia also helped my mom get involved. When Amelia noticed I felt like giving up, she whispered to my mom her observation and gave her suggestions of how to help. My mom felt involved and worked well with Amelia. Anna
