Antepartum/Prenatal Doula Services

pregnancy

As an antepartum doula, I can support you during your pregnancy while you are on bed rest, pregnant with multiples, have a high-risk pregnancy, or in other situations where you need an extra hand. Pregnancy support services are similar to postpartum support and may include:

• meal preparation, including freezer meals
• laundry and closet organization
•  light housework such as laundry, dishes, and general tidying
• running errands and purchasing needed supplies
•  education and resources to prepare for birth and baby

Pregnancy services are $30/hr with a 3 hour minimum per shift.
I also offer discounted packages:

Planning Sessions

• Postpartum Planning Session – $75

You’ve created your birth plan, but have you thought about what postpartum will look like for you? During this two-hour session, we will discuss your hopes and concerns for your postpartum period. We will touch on topics such as boundaries and how to deal with visits from well-meaning friends and family, delegation of practical household tasks, self-care, and care of siblings or pets.

• Sibling Preparation Session – $75

Want some help preparing your child(ren) for the upcoming birth of your baby but don’t need a sibling doula? This two-hour session might be perfect for you! We will discuss your plan for your child(ren) during your birth as well as adjustments once baby arrives. I can bring resources such as videos and books for your child to learn about pregnancy, birth, and what life is like with a new baby!

• Feeding Planning Session – $75

How are you planning to feed your baby? Breastfeeding, bottle feeding, or a combination? What about returning to work or school?  Will you need to pump? What kind of pump and bottles should you get? This two-hour session can help you sort through all the options and decide what will work best for your family!

• Birth Preferences Planning Session – $75

During this two-hour session, we will create a birth plan and/or list of birth preferences so you can feel supported, empowered, and educated to birth YOUR way. What does your ideal birth look like? Do you have preferences for pain control? What about comfort measures during birth? Do you want to labor in the water, eat during labor, or be coached on when to push? Let’s look at the choices together!
