Birth Doula Support

Labor Essentials is birth doula support for families who need specialized care and guidance.

Birth Doula SupportAs a birth doula, I specialize in supporting families with considerations such as vbac, twins, anxiety, premature labor, IVF and high-risk pregnancy. Many of my clients have experienced previous births which were labor inductions, or ended in emergency cesarean. It’s normal to feel anxious heading into birth when you’re on bed rest or finally pregnant after infertility. As a doula, I help my clients navigate this journey. I am an advocate, a guide, and a source of emotional and informational support.

Prenatal Support

Labor Essentials includes an initial prenatal visit where we go over your experience, expectations and birth preferences.

The second and third visits are private birth classes, specially outlined to support your preferences and goals. You will learn relaxation tools and coping techniques to utilize during your labor and delivery.

For the fourth prenatal visit, I accompany you to one of your doctor or midwife appointments.

During each prenatal visit you will have opportunities to ask questions and talk through any concerns you have about your upcoming birth.

Labor and Delivery Support

Beginning two weeks prior to your due date, I am on-call and will arrive when your labor begins. I provide continuous emotional and physical support throughout your labor and birth, remaining with you for the first hour or two postpartum.

Postpartum Care

Within two weeks of your birth, we will schedule a postpartum visit to assess how your transition into the fourth trimester is progressing. We review your birth experience and I answer any questions about postpartum recovery and newborn care. I also give referrals to other care providers as needed.

In addition to Labor Essentials, I also offer Newborn Night Care Essentials, which can be added to provide 3 nights of in-home postpartum doula support. Night Care Essentials will allow you to rest and transition into caring for your newborn on your own with confidence.

Additional days or nights of postpartum support can be added by request.
