Doula Services

 

Women helping women through their birth process is one of the oldest
traditions we have. Doulas provide support to the birthing family during
pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum period.
I have been working as a doula in the Tampa Bay area since 1995. I have been honored to attend over 420 births. I was certified by DONA (Doulas of North America) .
Each woman desires a different birthing experience. I work very hard to make each mom’s experience what she wants it to be.
My doula services include:
* A minimum of 2-3 prenatal visits to get to know each other and explore what you want in your birth process.
* 24 hour phone support during pregnancy.
* I loan you one of my birth balls at 36 weeks
* I go on call for you at 37 weeks.
* I meet you at your home in early labor.
* I go with you to the hospital (if that is your choice of birthing site).
* Emotional, physical and educational support for you and your partner (if present) during the entire labor.
* Help with initial latch-on for breastfeeding moms.
* I stay with you until you and the baby are stable and comfortable.
* A visit the day after the birth to check on you and the baby.
* A visit a few weeks after the birth to answer any questions you might have about your experience.
* A copy of my labor notes.
* Ongoing lactation counseling.
