Traditional Birth Doula Support ($1080)
This package includes tailored support during pregnancy and birth. I offer clients two prenatal visits (about 2 hours in length) that include birth plan formation as well as teaching you and your partner coping skills to help during labor. I also provide clients with extensive information on physical and mental preparation for pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period. The information pertains to nutrition, exercises for optimal positioning including Spinning Babies, benefits of chiropractic care for mom and baby, safe use of herbs and homeopathy, techniques for stress relief, & referrals for the best resources for pregnancy and postpartum care. All of this information can be easily accessed using Google Drive. My care also includes full support during labor and birth and one postpartum visit (about 2 hours in length) to help you process your birth and provide help on basic breastfeeding and newborn care as well as postpartum recovery and healing for yourself. All clients receive the following materials from me to keep: The Natural Pregnancy Book, What to Eat When You're Pregnant, access to the Spinning Babies video, The Daily Essentials, & a rebozo. I also have an extensive lending library.
