                                                                    THE DOULA PACKAGE

     Congratulations on embarking on this amazing transition in your life.   Thank you for getting in touch with me.  I would love to work with you during your pregnancy and the birth of your child! 
     You have made an excellent choice in finding a doula to be with you during this time.  Women who have a doula often have shorter labors, require less pain medication, have more success with breastfeeding, have better mother/child bonding, and report higher satisfaction rates regarding their births.
     I believe that when a woman is empowered by support, education, and preparation during her pregnancy, she is able to make the best decisions for herself and her child during labor.  As your doula, I will walk with you through the decision making process and support you through the transition of growing your family. 
    As your doula, I am hired by you, to support you – Therefore, I need to get to know you. I like to meet twice before your birth to construct a birth plan and talk about your birth expectations and concerns.  I am available to you 24/7 by phone and e-mail should you have any questions for example -  following doctor's appointments.  I will block out the 2 weeks prior to your due date and then be available to you until your baby is born.  I will be with you for you entire birth, meeting you at your home if you would like or at the hospital and staying with you for several hours post partum to assist with breastfeeding, mother/child bonding and to help you in the immediate recovery period.  I like to meet one or two weeks post partum to see how you are recovering, how breastfeeding is going, and make any referrals for a post partum doula or lactation consultant as needed. 

  If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact me,
