Birth & Postpartum Doula
Birth Doula Services that I provide include;
In those visits, we can have a chat and get to know each other. We will talk about what kind of birth experience you would like and make up a birth plan together.
We would chat about how I can help you and your partner what type of support you want from me.
I work with mom and her birth partner to help make their experience as gentle and enjoyable and empowering as possible. Helping the birth partner with resources on how to support mom during labour and birth such as comfort measures and massage or with holistic prenatal classes available in their area such as hypnobirthing, pregnancy yoga etc.
As soon as you think things are starting to go I will be with you. Early, mid or late stages of labour, whenever you would like me to come over I will.
If you are staying at home then I will be with you until your little one is happy out in your arms and if you are having a hospital birth I will go from your home to the hospital with you and your birth partner and again, be there till the very end.
The support that I will give you is completely up to you and your partner and the type of people that you are. It could be breathing and counting with you through every surge or taking photos of you and your partner at one of the most beautiful and intimate moments of both of your lives, it could be setting up your space with music and lighting so that you feel as much comfort as possible, it could be massaging your back or encouraging you with affirmations, it may be standing back and allowing you the space to be in your power and making sure that that sacred space is guarded and respected by anyone coming into it.
As your doula, I am completely following your leads and will support you in your decisions giving you encouragement and support when you feel like you need it.
Similar to birth support, the type of postpartum support that I offer is up to you . I have given a different type of support to every family that I have been with. No two visits have been the same.
The support that I offer ranges from feeding support. Emotional support and debriefing following your birth experience. Practical support helping out with jobs around the house, playing with and entertaining older siblings, giving you a chance to feed and connect with your new baby. Preparing meals for you to add to the freezer. Holding your new baby if you need a shower or a rest. I will settle into the energy of your home and be the sister that is there for whatever will make the space as comfortable and enjoyable and memorable as that magic postpartum time should be.
My passion is babies and mammas and birth and placentas and sisterhood and sacred feminine strength. Over the years I have picked up so much information on most topics that we might touch upon on my postpartum visits. I have so many resources and books to share so no question is off limits and you can be assured that the information is coming from a trusted, researched source.
You can get me through my contact page and I am free to chat for a consultation over the phone or even if you had a question, you don't have to ask me twice to get into it about birth and babies and the magic of it all.
So happy to have you here and looking forward t talking and meeting you soon.
