Face to Face labor support for the birthing person and their family.
From the day you hire us, your doula will be there to support you by answering questions and providing evidence based information on topics you want to know more about. During your two prenatal home visits, your doula will discuss comfort measures, your wishes for your birth, any fears you may wish to work through, help you create a birth plan if you choose to have one, and connect with you on a personal level so that she can support you in the way that you wish to be supported. At the birth, regardless of setting, your doula will be there to assist you in having the birth outcome that you feel is right for you. Whether your birth involves an epidural, VBAC, cesarean, or natural birth, your doula is commited to supporting you.
Judgement free, unbiased, professional, and compassionate support is your doula's number one priority.
Support for after you bring your baby home.
Coming home with a newborn can be scary, especially if it's your first, and even still if its your 3rd. Your postpartum doula can help alleviate some of the fear and stress and also take a little bit of the load off.
Postpartum doulas help with baby, can help you weigh the pros and cons of choosing a bottle, provide you with information on nursing or pumping, do light housekeeping, and even allow you to get a worry free shower or some much needed and coveted sleep.
As always, our support is judgement free, unbiased, evidence based, professional, and compassionate.
Many cultures make use of the placenta after birth in different ways. Some people choose to bury their placenta and plant a tree with it, some consume it raw, and some people put it in their freezer.
If none of those options seem appealing to you, you have the option of encapsulating. Using the steamed method of preparation, your placenta will be steamed, dehydrated, ground, and put into capsules for your consumption by a blood-borne pathogen trained Postpartum Placenta Specialist in your home. Our Postpartum Placenta Specialists adhere to strict standards of sanitation and cleanliness. In addition to encapsulation, you can choose to have a tincture, salve, cord keepsake, or placenta print made.
Contact us if you'd like to learn more about the benefits of consuming encapsulated placenta.
