This package is the most popular for those getting ready to experience their first labor and birth
Two prenatal visits at your home - This is a time for us to get to know one another. One of our favorite aspects of being doulas is getting to know you and what you envision for your birth. With two prenatal visits we can get to the nitty gritty of birth and in a sense have a doula birth education class. We will go over a variety of evidenced based information and birth options so you are able to form your birth preferences as well as learn how to incorporate these options into a birth plan/menu/hopes. We also go through what to expect during labor, how to manage and prepare for the environment and team surrounding you during your labor and birth, give tips on how to stay home longer (if you have decided on a hospital birth ) and review various comfort measures and techniques, e.g. rebozo, massage, etc. We will also discuss how to mentally prepare for birth and go over some daily excercises for optimal fetal positioning.
Postpartum visit 7- 14 days following birth - This visit gives you and partner the opportunity to process your experience as it can feel like a whirlwind. We are able to answer any questions you might have regarding newborn care, breastfeeding, and postpartum body care and can give you any resources/referrals you are interested in or need in regards to infant massage, baby wearing, moms groups, and postpartum recovery etc.
