Hiring a Birth Doula is a wise choice. With the reemergence of the field in recent years, studies have been done on how a doula effects a birth. These studies have shown that having a doula prenatally, through your birth and postpartum, helps families view their births in a positive light. They have also shown that doulas help minimize additional medical intervention and can even have a positive impact on a couple's relationship months after birth! A doula's role is to support the mother, but this support will look different for each family, and often a doula will support the mother by supporting the birth partner! Doulas bring a unique presence and perspective that enhances the birth experience.
All Packages include phone/text/email support from the time I am hired, until 4 weeks postpartum. Also included is four weeks of time I am "on call" and available to you 24 hours per day, generally from 38-42 weeks.
