Serving People in the Denver Metro Area
I will meet with you and your partner twice before your estimated due date. Each meeting can last up to 2 hours depending on your needs. The first meeting will be to guide you toward your birth intentions, journey through any fears you may have and help you better understand them.
The second meeting will be to go over each intervention and how to best make informed decisions. We will practice comfort measures, so that you feel confident heading into labor and get a head start with the basics of breastfeeding, if you choose to do so.
In between and after visits I am available for non-urgent phone calls, emails or texts between 8:00am and 8:00pm.
Once we decide you are ready for me to join you in labor, I will come to your home, hospital or birth center. During this time I will work hard to give you and your partner comfort, help create a safe space and remind you of your birth wishes. Should an unforeseen situation arise, I will do my best to help guide you through it. I remain with you during your entire labor and up to 1-2 hours after the birth. When your baby is born I can help you get started with breastfeeding if necessary.
Whether it’s your first, second or tenth baby, your birth story is unique and beautiful. If you would like me to capture images of your labor and birth, I charge $1oo on top of your Birth Support investment. This includes copies of every edited image I take and full rights to use them. We can discuss what moments you would like photos of, during your prenatal meetings.
Virtual Support During COVID-19
If your provider is only allowing one support person into your birth space, I can offer my virtual support. For your prenatal visits, I will email you all of my hand outs and we will review everything in a virtual meeting. When you go into labor I will use video calls, phone calls and text messaging to answer questions, suggest positions and guide you through the birthing process. To see why Doula support is even more important during these unprecedented times, read my latest blog.
My care doesn’t end after the birth of your baby. As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I offer in home visits to address common breastfeeding concerns and will work with you to ensure your breastfeeding journey goes smoothly.
