Birth Doula Virtual Services:
My Virtual Services include, a virtual prenatal visit to discuss your birth. We discuss how I will help you during your labor. We can discuss any concerns you may have about becoming a new parent. This can be done by Zoom.
We will discuss your past birth history, your pregnancy, comfort and care during early and active labor, your feelings about your birth, your fears, informed consent, hospital policies, procedures that may come up before and during labor, Medical interventions, and pain relief options. We can discuss the benefits of breastfeeding, should you decide to breastfeed. I will send you a “Welcome Packet” with helpful resources, links, book recommendations, and local reference information.
I will be available for your Labor and Delivery by phone (Zoom) to provide support for you. In early labor , I may suggest meditation. I have a calming MP3.
