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 usually consists of us getting to know each other and discussing what type of birth you’d like to have. I can help you write a birth plan and provide any information needed to help you make informed decisions.
The second meeting will be to practice comfort measures and put a plan in place for when you are in labor. This is when we will go over your birth choices in depth, so that you feel confident before labor begins.
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.
Virtual Support During COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, many birthing people are only allowed to have one support person in the birth room with them. Because of that, I am offering my clients 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. I am also offering extended postpartum support, so that my clients are not left with questions after the birth of their baby. 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.
