-COVID-19: Virtual Birth Doula-
I know that birthing during a pandemic can be frightening with uncertainty, confusion, and even anxiety. Now, more than ever, birthing families will benefit from the support of a doula.
Knowing many hospitals are restricting visitor access, the birth world has responded by increased virtual support options.
What does virtual support look like?
Continuous remote access to your doula via phone, text, zoom, face-time, doxy.me, or
hospital landline during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
[M]otherboard birth plan app
Discussion of all your birthing options: hospital, home birth and birth center.
Mailed package of essential comfort tools and quick reference guide for support person.
2-4 zoom prenatal sessions with hands on practice for mom and support person
Online education: Evidence based childbirth education, advocacy, knowing your rights in the COVID-19 time, breastfeeding, and daily activities to grow into a healthy pregnancy and birth.
Complimentary use of my TENS device and lending library, mailed to you
2-4 zoom postpartum check ins
All this, allows me to still be present with you throughout your pregnancy, labor and postpartum to help remind you that birth is a beautiful, normal and natural experience that does not need to be feared.
You are not alone, we are in this together!
Contact me for a FREE virtual consult, where we can talk more about the support I can offer you.
Selecting a doula is a very personal thing.
You want to really connect and walk away from her feeling like, she's the one!
So this complimentary meeting is to see if, I'm the one!
I'll come to your home or location of choice and meet with you and your partner to discuss your needs, concerns, and expectations.
My goal at this meeting:
*answer all your questions
*give you a visual of what having a doula will be like
*go over my services and policies.
*leaving you with my information and excited to get to the next step!
This is completely FREE and usually takes about an hour or so.
