Virtual Doula Support

virtual doula services

I am excited to announce that I am now offering virtual doula services!

These virtual services are available to anyone, anywhere in the world who desires extra support during their birth and postpartum time.

Virtual Birth Support

Virtual birth support can be a wonderful option in this changing world. Having extra non-medical support available when you need it can help you have an empowered birth experience. Virtual birth support is similar to in person birth support, however all communication will be virtual over phone calls, texting, email, and video. 

My standard virtual birth support services cost $750 and include…

  • Initial consultation via Skype, Zoom, or Duo
  • Two 1 hour prenatal meetings to discuss birth preferences and planning, postpartum and feeding planning, and comfort measures demonstration and coaching.
  • Phone, video, email, or text check in and discussion during pregnancy
  • Continuous virtual support during labor by text, video, and phone.
    • This includes suggestions of position changes, comfort measures, discussion of interventions and options, reminders to use the bathroom, drink water, and move around as well as emotional support and coaching your support person or partner (if applicable) through comfort measures and physical support.
  • Support for the first 1-3 hours immediately postpartum until you are settled
  • 1 hour postpartum meeting, ~1-2 weeks post birth

Virtual postpartum support

Virtual postpartum support is great for those who are looking for non-medical support during their postpartum time without the in person aspect. Again, all communication will be virtual through phone calls, texting, email, and video.
