Birth Doula Package
Let's meet and have a chat! Meeting in person is a great way to see if we connect. It is important to feel trust and to follow your instincts when choosing a doula.
Phone & Email Support
Starting week 38, I am on call for you. When you are in prelabor or labor, I will return your call within 1 hour or less. For other questions or concerns, I usually return emails within a few hours. Text message is the quickest way to reach me.
2 Prenatal Visits
I provide 2 prenatal visits for my clients. The first prenatal is to introduce several techniques that help with labor and to build our relationship.
The second prenatal visit we will make a birth plan, if desired, and practice the techniques from our first prenatal.
I cannot perform any clinical tasks
I am a member of your birth team, but anything medical I leave up to the experts.
I provide support to you and your partner throughout labor. Through gentle touch, motivation, and a calm presence I will provide the support you and your partner need to have a once in a lifetime experince.
Postpartum follow-up visit
We will set up a visit at your convenience for a little postnatal care. We can talk breastfeeding, your birth experience, or any other topics you are concerned with.
I can provide information for you to make a decision, but I cannot make it for you.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
I am here to help you through a very special time. I will give you all the info, but you decide what is right for your birth experience. I will not force any of my own beliefs or opinions onto your experience.
Reiki Healing Sessions
Rei - Spiritual Wisdom Ki - Life Energy
The Healing art of Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. A session usually lasts around an hour with a healing first followed by a short discussion about your experience. This can be in home or at our office in New Haven.
