I’m excited to share that I will now be offering Birth Support Services to my Prenatal Yoga clients only. The best part – as a Doula Client, you will be entitled to UNLIMITED PRENATAL YOGA for the duration of your pregnancy!
Doula : a woman experienced in childbirth who provides advice, information, emotional support, and physical comfort to a mother (and her partner) before, during, and just after childbirth.
As a regular participant in Journey Yoga prenatal classes, we will begin to develop a rapport and build a relationship of trust. Thus, continuing our relationship into your birth experience makes perfect sense!
So, what does this look like? If you are interested in my Birth Support Services, we will schedule a meeting, outside of yoga, along with your partner. This is an opportunity to chat and see if you both feel this is a good fit and to check my availability around your Guess Date.
We will then meet again to discuss your birth in more detail and answer any questions. What is your vision for an optimal birth? A $250 deposit is required at this time.
We will meet once again, closer to your birth, to finalize your plan, discuss optimal positions, comfort measures, etc. This meeting may take place at the yoga studio where we can move and practice so your partner feels at ease with the comfort measures.
Several weeks before your Guess Date your final payment of $500 is due. I am now “On Call” for you and we will stay in contact via phone, text, or email in addition to checking in at yoga classes.
Once you go into labor, I will be at your side from when you feel you’re ready for support until 1-2 hours after delivery.
And finally, we will schedule a postpartum visit 1-2 weeks after delivery. This is just an opportunity to check-in, answer any questions about your birth, and show off your precious new love!
It is important to remember that a Birth Support person, or Doula, is not a medical professional. We provide emotional and physical support to laboring moms and their partners, to supplement the medical care being provided. We are also a great resource to connect you to other professionals who can provide support through pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.
