Birth Doula Support

THE DOULA

BENEFITS

Birth Doula Support offer by Doula Jenn

  1. Free consultation to go over birth doula support covered by Doula Jenn. All consultations are done via phone call or video chat (FaceTime or Zoom).
  2. 2 Prenatal Meetings (all of these meetings are currently virtual until the COVID-19 pandemic status is lifted):

    Meeting 1: We discuss your priorities and hopes for your birth process, we work through your deepest fears and reservations, and help you begin to visualize and consciously prepare for your ideal birth. I also discuss the importance of good body mechanics and positioning, and I go over several exercises that bring balance to your body to help ease pregnancy discomfort and prepare your body for an easier labor.

    Meeting 2: The goal of this meeting is help you process what labor looks like and how you and your partner can best move through labor together. I will also go over more in depth what to expect from labor support and when to bring me in if you desire in-person support. I will also go over what is left on your to-do list, and go over various logistics.

  3. Access to my client portal along with resources of community referrals.
  4. “On call” support beginning at contract signing and continuing until birth.
  5. Unlimited text/phone/email support throughout pregnancy and after birth.
  6. Continuous labor support when you feel like you’re ready to have a doula.
  7. Birth notes, mailed after the birth.
  8. Postpartum visit available upon request.
  9. Breastfeeding support and referrals if needed.

I can discuss medical recommendations and options, and then I will act as an advocate for your decisions. I will also encourage relaxation, position changes, pain management and comfort measures to decrease the discomforts of labor where possible.
