Prenatal Support

We provide all clients with a foundation of health literacy, pregnancy well-being and basic birth education. We know that birthers who prepare actively for their birth have better outcomes and are more satisifed with their birth experience. To help you prepare you’ll also have access to our birth preparation toolkit – flashcards, videos, and more! We are available via email and phone to answer questions or address concerns and will meet with you for customized prenatal consultations. We also offer a 20% discount for group birth classes where you can practice and apply both shared-decision making and birth skills. You can take a deep breathe. You’ve got an entire team of experienced birth workers helping you prepare for your birth.

Birth

Birth Support

Not sure what to do once labor starts? We will be on the phone and by your side providing guidance, support, and coaching. We’ll help you figure out where you are in the labor process, think of the right questions to ask your provider, find the best positions for labor progress, and do everything we can to help you be as comfortable as possible. After birth, we continue to advocate for and focus on your well-being. While we are trained to assist with and often help with infant feeding, you remain our primary concern. If you want to use pain medication, we’ll help you get it. If you want to labor without pain medication – we’ve got the tools to help you do that too! Planning a cesarean birth? We’ll help you have a beautiful and peaceful birth. We support all the ways humans birth their babies.

Postpartum

Postpartum Support

We are birth doulas, but our support doesn’t stop once you give birth. After birth, we continue to provide education, emotional, and practical new parenting and infant feeding support. We can help you find the resources you need to feel confident as you transition into parenthood. In addition to phone and email support, we’ll meet with you for a postpartum consultation to answer questions about postpartum physical and emotional wellness, infant feeding, and to review your birth. We can also help you identify opportunities for additional support. We know where our strengths lie, and will gladly refer you to one of the many professionals we work with in the perinatal health field if you are looking for more specialized support.
