At A glance

Here are the brass tacks. My services include:

  • A free initial interview to discuss my services and to decide if we would like to work together.
  • Two prenatal meetings to help prepare for your unique birth experience.
  • On-call from week 38 of your pregnancy until you give birth.
  • Use of TENS unit (optional).
  • Physical and emotional support during your labor, birth and initiation of breastfeeding.
  • 24 hour support by phone or email beginning when you hire me.
  • A 60 minute postpartum massage in your home.
  • Photos/video (optional).
  • Video and book lending library.
  • Placenta encapsulation (optional).
  • A second postpartum home visit to review your experience, if you chose.
  • Perhaps the gift of a swanky I LOVE MY DOULA onsie similar to the one modeled by the fashion-forward babies on this site.
  • Access to me for the rest of your days – really! I enjoy hearing updates about the families I serve, am happy to offer myself as a parenting resource and would certainly love to help you welcome your next baby/babies if your family continues to grow.
  • Baby at left not included (although he is awfully cute isn’t he?).

I adhere to DONA Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
