Labor Support Doula

Birth Support Doulas offer emotional support, assistance with comfort, encouragement and wisdom throughout your pregnancy, labor, and birth. Birth doulas are present during your labor and birth in addition to your healthcare provider. Studies have shown that complications during labor and delivery are less likely when a doula is present to assist the mother. Clients receive a personalized initial consultation, continuous phone and email support, 2-3 non-medical prenatal visits, birth plan assistance (if requested), 24 hour on call labor support for 2 weeks prior to your birth, continuous presence and support throughout your labor and birth and one postpartum visit within 1 week after your birth.

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” -Barbara Katz Rothman

Breastfeeding Help

The breastfeeding relationship combines instinct and learned skills. Our private one on one classes focuses on the first critical weeks of your baby's life and provides basic information and resources to prepare the mother-to-be for a satisfying breastfeeding experience. Since family support is a key factor in a positive breastfeeding experience, partners are also encouraged to attend. Some topics included in the class are:

  • Getting started
  • Latching and positioning the baby
  • Overcoming common obstacles such as engorgement
  • Learning babies hunger cues

Newborn 101

As parents, we are all figuring it out as we go along. Trial and error will definitely be a learning strategy as you get to know your baby. In this class, we will try to limit the "error" part of "trial and error" by sharing practical insights and identifying supportive resources. How to hold a newborn — just how fragile are they? What are the sensory capacities of the newborn? How can parents best determine their baby's needs and read their baby's cues? Is all that stuff necessary? What equipment and supplies do you really need? What about diapering, bathing, and calming the baby? Just how sleep deprived will you be? Get your questions answered!
