All support packages with Springs of Life Doula Services include the following:
- I offer every couple a complimentary consultation/interview at a public place of your choosing. This free consultation is a time to get to know each other and ask me any questions you'd like prior to hiring me as your Doula. There are no obligations to hire my services from this consultation.
- Each package includes continuous support via phone/email throughout your pregnancy. This means that upon signing a contract and paying your deposit, I will immediately be on call for you. This includes any questions you may have about anything ranging from nutrition/exercise to how to help ease morning sickness. I will also be on-call in the event to you happen to go into labor sooner than expected.
-2 prenatal visits (if you want more this will have to be discussed prior to the initial interview or if needed after the contract is signed and an extra $40 per hour will be charged and the contract altered to fit the extra visits) at your home or other place of your choosing, each visit will go for approximately 1 hour but may take longer and no extra fee will be charged if the visit goes overtime.
Here are some various things covered during your prenatal appointments. I will assist you and your partner with creating and discussion of birth plan/preferences. We will go through a variety of comfort and positioning techniques. I will show you how to properly use a birth ball. We will also cover optimal fetal positioning and suggested light exercises to perform during last 2-3 weeks of pregnancy. Your prenatal visits are designed to prepare you for your birthing day, so we can customize this time to fit your needs!
-Continuous support during your labor and birth at the Hospital or Birth Center of your choice, or during your Homebirth.
-Support after your baby is born during the immediate recovery period (typically 1-2 hours for a vaginal delivery and typically 4 hours for a cesarean delivery)
-2 postpartum visits starting on either the 2nd or 3rd day, or if you have an extended hospital stay the 3rd day after returning home from the hospital. This includes support for breastfeeding.
