Early bird Special:

Interested in working with us through the early stages of your pregnancy as well? In addition to the package of your choosing from above, this includes:

Birth Consultation (Not sure where to birth or with whom? Not sure what the advantages or disadvantages of an epidural are? Is a home birth a good choice for you? Who takes your insurance? Let's talk it out.)

Monthly check-ins (Want natural remedies to ease pregnancy symptoms? Not sure what to expect at upcoming doctor/midwife visits? Feeling frustrated/confused/stressed/excited? Want to know what to eat to help you and baby? We would love to support you from the beginning!)

WHAT MAKES US AWESOME?

  • The value of working with a doula partnership is that you get the experience, knowledge and energy of two doulas for the price of one. Additionally, you are able to establish a relationship with whoever your "backup" doula might be (which is not offered through the traditional doula model). 
  • We uniquely have backgrounds in nutrition, childbirth education and meditation/stress-reduction techniques and as such integrate them into our sessions.
  • We work in all birthing places- homes, hospitals and birth centers and with all preferences- unmedicated, epidurals and c-sections. 

Some topics we will go over together (in all packages):

  • How to prep the body and mind for labor
  • Birthing place procedures 
  • Birth preferences/"Birth Plan" (We like to refer to it as "Preferences" as part of the flux of labor comes from its unpredictability!) 
  • Facilitating partner involvement
  • Breastfeeding
  • Postnatal body and mind
  • Infant Care
