Birth Doula Services

 

“Nuts & Bolts” Birth Doula Services

The cornerstone of Birth Doula Services is developing a trusting relationship with our clients. Building that relationshop begins at your complimentary consultation. At each of our prenatal meetings we get to know eachother better, begin to understand your vision, and wishes for your birth experience. We discuss and process you concerns and worries. Fear is a normal part of this process; especially if this is your first pregnancy. Overcoming those fears starts with knowledge and the confidence that comes with a great support system.  

Our first prenatal visit is:

  • Intake of you history and past pregnancies
  • Assesment of your needs
  • Address concerns
  • Learn what helps you relax
  • Discuss birth preferences 
  • Uncover you expectations for birth & doula care
  • Answer questions 

This appointment is conducted over Zoom.

  • Spinning Babies® Techniques
  • Self Hypnosis
  • Peanut and Birth Ball Techniques
  • Breathing for labor and pusing
  • Informed Consent
  • Signs of labor

The second prenatal in the Basic Package or third in the Premium and Ultimate is a labor trial. We will practice using the Doula tools and techniques including:

  • Prenatal Exercises

On your Birthing Day continuous labor and delivery support can begin in your home or when we meet at the hospital. Hospital and home support include:

  • Non-medical comfort measures during labor
  • Positions and movements for labor and birth

Potpartum vistis in the home are at your request during the fourth trimester. The Basic package includes one visit. The Premium and Ultimite include 2 visits. 
Included are:

  • Breastfeeding or bottle feeding support and education
  • Newborn and infant care information
  • Personal care information

  • Sibling adjustment information
  • Assistance with adjusting to new roles
  • Answering questions and addressing any concerns.
  • Reflect on your birth.

Above all else, we are committed to provide you with the same level of tender loving care we give our own families.  We are accessible via home & cell phone, facebook, twitter, and e-mail. We will do our best to answer all your questions with evidence based information.  Although we lean toward the Midwifery model of care, the Medical Model is what most of you will be required to navigate. At N.E.A.R To You we firmly believe that a beautiful, and positive birth experience can be achieved in a hospital setting. We support your choices, which could include a non-medicated birth, use of an epidural, or scheduled cesarean. We’d love an opportunity to meet with you as it is most important for you to find a doula that you completely trust and are comfortable. Supporting birthing people and their families is our passion. We truly believe birth is an empowering, transforming, and life changing event. 

It is an honor and privilege to be a part of the day you welcome a new life, healthy, happy, and full of promise. Rachel, Jessica & Lisa
