I am a labor support doula in the final stages of my training. I have over 17 years of experience working with families, prenatally as well as, postpartum. I have assisted in births throughout the years and always felt in awe of the amazing miracle of birth. Now that both my children are grown I have decided to dedicate my time to pursue my passion and support women during labor in a more official capacity. I also attended a midwife assistant program at ‘The Farm’ last April to further enhance my education and better assist the families I work with.
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant I bring with me many years of experience in the field of lactation support which is valuable after the birth of your child. If you choose to breastfeed, I am there to support you and your baby in getting off to the best start in regards to breastfeeding. First latch is so important to help establish a healthy and positive breastfeeding experience. Your colostrum, the early milk, is the perfect food for your baby. It is the first gift you will be giving them and I am there to help facilitate that, if needed.
Fee for labor support- $800.00
An informational phone interview (and/or a meeting, if desired) for you to get to know me so you can decide if I am the right doula for you.
A prenatal meeting to get to know each better and to go over your plan, discuss labor pain coping strategies etc.
Attending and supporting you during labor and birth.
A postpartum home visit to see how things are going, assist with breastfeeding, address questions regarding basic newborn care etc.
