Birth

Birth packages include one free consultation, two prenatal visits, time “on call” 24/7 starting at 38 weeks (up to 42 weeks), and two postpartum visits.

The initial consult is a “get to know you” meeting. I recommend chatting over coffee. You’ll leave with a copy of my contract and intake forms.

Birth support begins when you feel you need me. Day or night, I’ll meet you within 1-2 hours from “the call”, and stay by your side for a minimum of 12 hours. In the event of an emergency you may be assigned a backup doula. This is very rare. If you require more than 12 hours of continuous labor support, a backup doula may be called in to ensure you have a fresh, awake, and capable doula at all times. This is also very rare.

I attend all manner of births, with the exception of planned unassisted childbirth. Ask me about my scope of practice to ensure my care is right for you.

After the birth, I remain with my clients for an average of two hours. In this time I might fetch food and drinks for the parents, attend solely to mother or baby in the event an emergency has required a separation of the two, provide comfort care for after pains and recovery, and assist with the first feed. I return for two postpartum visits to assist with baby care and postpartum recovery. One during the first week and one during the third.

From the moment a birth package contract is signed, I’m available for distance support. You can call, text, or email at any time to ask questions and discuss concerns.
