Holistic Birth Package
the cost of this package is $950
2 Prenatal Appointments
During these home visits, I carefully listen to family’s emotional, interpersonal, and health histories to determine how I can best serve as their doula. I offer :
Education about the birthing process
Evidence based care recommendations
Movement strategies for pregnancy and labor
Movement and positional techniques to optimize fetal positioning and pelvic space during labor
Mindfulness strategies for childbirth and early parenting
Discussion of common interventions in the hospital setting and ways to avoid them
Self-advocacy tools to optimize care
Strategies to prepare for the postpartum period
Prenatal visits last 2-3 hours. I cherish the opportunity to get to know every family deeply before their birthing time arrives. I am also available for phone or email support during your pregnancy.
24 Hours On Call Support From 37-42 Weeks
I am available 24/7 to answer questions, provide emotional resiliency, and offer support through early labor until it is time for me to join you at your home or birth location.
Continuous Labor Support
Once a client is in labor and requests my physical presence, I offer continuous labor support to them and their birth partner(s) until baby is born. As your doula, I will guide you and your loved ones through the journey that is childbirth. My support includes advocacy, movement suggestions, hands on support, caring and fierce affirmations, and the deep knowing that birth is a normal and natural process. I stay with you for several hours after your birth to clean your birth space and ensure that your transition to recovery and parenthood is peaceful and gentle.
1 Postpartum Visit
Our postpartum visit is a powerful time to bring our doula/client relationship full circle. During this visit I offer:
Healing Ayurvedic soup to help nourish you in the early days of new parenthood
Space to remember and reflect on your birth
I work closely with Philadelphia’s most trusted lactation consultants, pelvic floor specialists, chiropractors, and mental health professionals and make personal recommendations based on each family’s individual needs.
Postpartum Doula Support can be arranged for a separate fee. Ask me if you are interested in arranging for postpartum doula support after your birth.
Post-op Doula Support for Gender Affirming Surgeries Following the model of postpartum doula care, I offer physical and emotional support, meal preparation, wound and drain care, and light house cleaning for individuals recovering from gender affirmation surgery. Contact me directly for daytime and overnight rates.
