I love supporting women through their pregnancies and births. As a doula I get to witness the most amazing miracle that is birth, and I am so happy and honoured to be present and able to help women during this time. To this work I bring my heart, my ears and my hands to see you, to hear you and to hold you.
As your doula I provide:
My birth doula support fee is $1500
This includes everything listed to the left. Should you choose to birth at home I will also provide you with a home birth kit. Should you be planning for a water birth I will provide you with everything you need to have a waterbirth at home. This is all included, along with the setup and takedown of the pool.
Sliding scale available for single mothers and families in financial difficulties. Contact me for more information.
How I might help you stay comfortable
By giving you a massage, doing acupressure, various rebozo techniques, suggesting position changes, brushing your hair, queue the music (your playlist), reading you hypnobirth scripts, setting up the TENS unit on your back, taking care of ambiance & lighting, make sure you get some food and water in you, by letting your partner take a nap or break should they need it, holding the shower on your back, hip squeezes, by holding your hand, by giving you encouragement and/or reassurement, by being a calm presence in the room.
Tools of the Trade
To every birth I bring a rebozo, hot and cold packs, a TENS unit, massage oil, massage tools, deep birth knowledge, aromatherapy essential oils, homeopathy and herbal remedies, all of the HypnoBabies scripts and CDs, Ener-C vitamin & element drink, tricks up my sleeve, energy, stamina, new ideas, a state of awe and most importantly compassion.
