PHONE DOULA SERVICES
I have had many experiences where my doula-ing work was done mostly over the phone but in situations that weren’t previously planned like a very fast labor. Many of those couples expressed that there was a great value on the guidance over the phone. That’s why I started offering this package.
With this package couples can contact me anytime during pregnancy and labor and over the phone I will guide the couple, mostly the partner, of what might be helpful at that point in labor. There will be feedback about the stage of labor and what to expect, suggestions of positions that will optimize the baby’s position as well as labor, exercises for the labor progression, couching with breathing, suggestions for massages and comfort techniques that can be helpful to be applied at the point in labor, ideas of how to exchange information and desires with the staff, etc.
This is a great package for people who feel prepared for labor and do not want to have an extra person involved but feel that there is a value in the guidance during labor from someone familiar with them and with the labor process, as well as the team they are birthing with. This is a great option for partners that fell that they can fullfil mostly of a doula roll but are looking for the extra confidence at the moment since it is such an emotional time.
This is only available for women/couples that have taken the childbirth preparation series class with me or that have been a past client.
