baby birth help support Tacoma South SoundBirth Planning – $75

Nervous about how your birth will go? Have some preferences you’d like your care providers to know about? Curious about your options? This birth planning session is just for you!

You and I will spend two hours together putting together your birth plan. We will discuss possible scenarios and I’ll help you express your preferences in a clear, concise way. At the end of our session, you’ll walk away empowered and with a written birth plan {templates included} for you to discuss with your care provider.

Birth Doula – $1400

As non-medical birth professionals, I am here to support you physically, emotionally, and informationally through the great adventure of pregnancy, labor, and birth. I’ll meet during your pregnancy to talk about your worries, concerns, and questions about pregnancy, labor, and early parenting. When labor starts, I offer comfort measures, coping techniques, encouragement, and reassurance for you and your partner.

Services include:

    • two pre-birth planning consultations to calm nerves, answer questions, and prepare for labor
    • constantly available via phone and email throughout pregnancy, plus 24/7 on-call hours starting two week before your due date
    • continuous in-person physical and emotional support during your labor and birth
    • one to two hours of support immediately after the birth to protect “the golden hour” and promote bonding with your new baby
    • a home visit within the first week postpartum 

Clients also have access to my lending library, which is full of great books and articles related to pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding.

Just like we try on shoes before we buy, I think it makes sense for us to meet to make sure we are a good fit. I’d love to meet you for a coffee and a complimentary discussion of your birth goals. Please send me an email and let’s see if we’re a good fit!
