Labor Packages - $1400
The support of a doula before, during, and after birth has been proven to improve birth outcomes and parents' satisfaction with the experience. Whether you plan to give birth at home, in a birth center, or in a hospital, having an experienced doula will help you navigate your journey through labor by meeting with you prenatally to prepare, helping you pace yourself in early labor, joining you well before your medical provider is needed, staying by your side through the whole process, remaining after birth for the immediate recovery and skin to skin time, and following up with you in your home during the postpartum period.
Included in the package:
-continuous support from time of hire to 12 weeks postpartum
-2 prenatal visits in your home to prepare for birth
-round the clock availability from 38 weeks until delivery
-2 postpartum follow up visits in your home
-free massage with LMT experienced in pregnancy & postpartum care
-discounts on our postpartum & placenta services, classes, & baby photography, and more
We believe that everyone who wants a doula should have access to one, for those with financial constraints ask us about our scholarship fund.
