Doula services begin around 25 weeks or sooner through text & phone support. Through 1-2 sessions we will get to know you, your desires and your vision for your birth.
We help design a birth plan together, letting you know your choices (but not providing medical advice).
During labor & delivery we are there to support and serve you and your birth partner. We provide mental and physical support, comfort measures and advocate for you.
Our heart is to capture your glorious birth experience as it unfolds so that you can enjoy it for years to come! Our doula services can include birth photography.
Birth photography is handled by doula trained photographers. The duality of their experience gives them comfort in the birth space, and birthing parents comfort in their presence.
We will always do our best to protect the peace and serenity of your birthing space.
New baby. New Normal.
Our role is to help ease the transition to life at home through our overnight support. While you rest & heal, we will comfort baby in-between feedings (or bottle feed for you) so that you can rest as much as possible at night, Overnight shifts can be 6 or 8 hours.
We will encapsulate your placenta using Traditional Chinese Medicine practices. . TMC is one of the oldest herbal systems in the world. This method includes steaming the placenta using lemon and ginger to infuse and dehydrate before grinding and encapsulating. The process will take place over two days and can be done in your home or off-site in a clean & safe environment.
Benefits of encapsulation:
- improvement in postpartum mood
-balance to post-birth hormones
-improvement in lactation and recovery from birth
Each placenta will yield between 75 – 250 capsules depending on the size of the placenta. Please note that results may vary for each individual.
