The Birth Service

Overview

As your doula I will be providing 24/7 support  via phone and text. You will have me to lean on for education, guidance and companionship. We schedule 2 - 3 prenatal appointments where we can discuss your birth vision, birth preferences, and prepare for this incredible experience. I get to know you and learn about what you respond to and connect with the most to help mold myself around your priorities and needs.  From comfort measures to birthing styles, we will work together as a team to create the foundation of your birth knowledge and build up your confidence. As a doula here in Minnesota, I can support you no matter how you are having your baby, Non-medicated, medicated, induction, VBAC, or C-Section. I am experienced in fitness and nutrition and provide guidance and encouragement in those areas throughout your pregnancy. We will create a birth preference sheet together and discuss comfort measures such as aromatherapy, massage and hot/cold therapy. Practice strengthening exercises and labor positions that will help prepare us for birth.  Also, I can assist you in preparing your nursery, hospital bag and any other areas you need guidance.

Alternative Birth Support

There are some instances where we need birth support when we hadn't had the chance to explore all of our options. There are so many decisions to be made when preparing to give birth that sometimes we miss important opportunities to work with a doula prior to labor. I have decided as I've gained more experience as a birth worker and body worker, to provide additional body work to clients in need of it. I strongly believe everyone should have a doula for their birth in some shape or form however this service is in no way to take place of the The Birth Service.

 

Alternative Birth Support is an hourly services in which I will come to join you during early or active labor to provide body work, balancing, massage therapy, breathing technique coaching and emotional support for up to 6 hours.
