LABOR DOULA SERVICES
As your labor doula, I will come alongside you to offer informational, emotional, and physical support during pregnancy and birth. My job is to support and honor your wishes for whatever kind of birth you are wanting to have. I work with you and your care team to support you on that journey. Sometimes this means helping you find the information you need for the decisions you have to make. Sometimes this means giving your partner tips on how they can best support you through the next contraction. Sometimes this means rubbing your back, giving an encouraging word, or reminding your medical team what is on your birth plan.
Feel free to contact me to set up a free meet and greet/interview so you can ask questions and get to know me better!
As your postpartum doula, I will come alongside to offer support in the first few weeks and months after you give birth. These can be exhausting days coping with breastfeeding in the night, hormonal changes postpartum, and taking care of a new little one. I am there to assist with things like breastfeeding support, professional referrals, laundry, dishes, making a meal, holding the baby while you take a nap/shower, reading to your other kids, or giving you a foot massage.
Some people know they want a postpartum doula before the baby is born, and they meet with me in person before the birth. I then keep a spot available on my calendar around the estimated due date. Others call me because the baby is already here and they need urgent assistance. Either way, reach out and I will work to arrange something that fits your needs!
HOME BAKED COOKIES & BARS
Often in the busy days and weeks after birth, people don’t get the nourishment they need. I love baking healthy snacks for breastfeeding moms and offer several gluten-free and vegan cookie & breakfast bar options. These can be made ahead of time and delivered to you or made in your home during postpartum visits.
