To ensure compatibility and discuss your hopes for your upcoming birth experience (this is basically a first date)
This is our signature offering. You choose the team model or a solo doula. We love offering the benefit of team support - two perspectives, a well rounded team to hold you through this experience, and continuity of care (the doula or doulas attending your labor both know you). For families who want a more intimate experience, a solo doula might be the best option for you.
2 - 3 Prenatal Visits:
Get to know one another, present evidence-based information, review your goals, desires, questions, and concerns, birth planning, and postpartum preparation
Support (via phone, text, and email):
Unlimited text, phone, and email support throughout pregnancy until 6 weeks postpartum
Labor and Birth Support:
We are with you (at home and/or the birth location) from the moment you request support until 1-2 hours after baby’s birth
In-home visit about 3-10 days postpartum to reflect on the birth experience, answer questions, and provide referrals

The First Month:
Four 4-hour daytime visits for baby’s first month | $575
A postpartum doula is an extra pair of hands during the fourth trimester to help facilitate a smooth adjustment during this tender time. This might look like in-home education on newborn care and cues, assisting with light household chores, holding baby so you can take a shower, overnight care to help you get some extra sleep, or simply reassurance that you’re doing it right.

Are you a planner? We get it. Preparation for what to expect can reduce anxiety and fear of the unknown. Knowledge is power.
Are you an introvert and bristling at the thought of doing an ice breaker in a room full of people? Since we believe in individualized support, we understand that group or hospital based classes might not be the best fit for everyone.
Super busy? Maybe you know all of the things about the stages of labor, but want to dive into positions to help you progress and cope? Let’s customize this for you and do it your way.
In home or virtual private childbirth class for one family, custom curriculum, 3-6 hours.
Topics Covered Might Include:
• Anatomy and physiology of the pregnant body
• Stages of labor and birth
• Healthy coping
• Comfort techniques and positions
• Partner support and involvement
• Tools (interventions) available at your birth and/or transfer location

Your placenta will be prepared, steamed, dehydrated, and encapsulated following the Traditional Chinese Method.
Placenta services all include pick-up of your placenta from your birth location and drop-off of the product at your home.
Tincture | add $25
Salve | add $25
The placenta contains your own natural hormones (progesterone, estrogen, prolactin, oxytocin, and cortisol) and other nutrients (iron, protein, minerals). Many report that consuming their placenta helps them recover from birth, increases their energy, helps their postpartum mood, and contributes to blood-building (thus, milk supply).
