Virtual Doula Coaching & Support

Nothing can replace the hands-on support of a Doula during your pregnancy and labor, but thanks to technology, we have the next best thing: Virtual Support. As an experienced professional Coach, Doula, Childbirth Educator and Lactation Specialist, I am here to support you throughout your pregnancy, birth and at home with your new baby with "Virtual Support" via phone, text, email and video chat. 

With an overwhelming amount of information on the internet, office visits with your providers lasting only 15 minutes and a slew of well-meaning family members offering "advice", it can feeling overwhelming as a pregnant person navigating this time in your life. I am here to help your family understand the system of pregnancy, birth and postpartum in a professional, unbiased manner using evidence-based information. Hiring me is like having a personal tour guide for your experience. You share with me your desires and I show you options for paths that can help lead you there. You may encounter unexpected stops along the way, but you will always feel supported, educated and encouraged on your journey.

On a virtual platform, almost everything a Doula offers can still be provided:

 

Prenatally:

  • Virtual prenatal visits to discuss your questions, build your birth plan and prepare for postpartum.

  • Access to my Online Client Portal to get all of the information, tips, tricks and resources that you deserve whether we meet in person or not.T

  • Talking on the phone, emailing and texting as you go through the process of building your birth plan & navigating your pregnancy.

 

In-Labor I Provide The Following:

  • Helping to find a comfortable position

  • Providing reminders about rest, hydration and nutrition

  • Providing guidance, relaxation and coping skills

  • Helping to answer questions

  • Helping to formulate questions for care providers

  • Guiding your partner through hands-on body work that cannot be provided from afar

 

Postpartum Visits:

  • Though I will certainly miss your hugs and snapping a picture of us together with your new baby, a virtual postpartum visit or two is still beneficial and supportive.

  • Breastfeeding is natural, that doesn't mean it's easy. Many women undergo learning curves and I am here to help guide you on a successful breastfeeding journey.

  • Babywearing demo: If you have a baby carrier I can coach you on how to put it on comfortably and get your baby into it safely. I have many styles of baby carriers I will demo for you, depending on your needs.

  • I offer check-ins via email/phone/text which usually phases out around 6 weeks when you start feeling more and more confident in your parenting skills.

Investment:

$400 - $900 depending on the level of support your family desires. Inquire for more details

"Thank you so much for all the support during my pregnancy, labor and postpartum. I can't begin to explain how much comfort you were able to provide to my husband and myself, especially during this crazy pandemic. Your calm and reason during a difficult labor gave me the peace I needed to accept the necessary changes to my goal birth experience. Even Virtually, your services were invaluable."
