At this time, Birth Doula services are offered as an all-inclusive package. As a doula, Emily feels that each step of the process, from the prenatal meetings to the postpartum visit, is vital to making each client feel empowered and satisfied with their birth experience. Support can be either in person or virtual, depending on client preferences and policies of hospitals and birthing centers.
Birth Doula Package Includes:
Two (or more) Prenatal Visits: Prenatal visits typically take place in the mama’s home, or another location where she feels comfortable and relaxed. These visits provide an opportunity for the Doula and her client (and the client’s other support people) to get to know each other and discuss important topics such as birth preferences, coping techniques, personal history, logistics, and resources.
On-Call Support: Once hired, the Doula is available to her client through email, phone, text, and Facebook to answer questions, chat, or provide updates at any time. The Doula is also on-call for the labor starting at 38 weeks through when the baby is born.
Continuous Labor Support: Once labor begins and the Doula is called, the Doula will remain with the client for the duration of the labor.
Post Partum Support: Following the birth of the baby, the Doula will remain with the client for approximately two hours to help in any way possible (clean up, breastfeeding assistance, taking photos, answering questions, etc.).
Postpartum Visit: In the weeks following the birth, the Doula will arrange a visit to the client’s home. This visit allows the Doula and client to visit, discuss the labor, provide breastfeeding support if desired, and answer any questions about the labor that may have arisen.
Birth Story: In the months following the birth, the Doula will provide the client with a birth story, presented in storybook form, to share with your child and treasure as a family keepsake for years to come.
