Mind - Body Doula Care
Currently Available for births in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens
Doula care is shown to reduce risk of c-section, shorten labor time, and increase overall satisfaction in the birth experience. As your doula, I work for you! I’m here to support you and/or your partner and to help you make informed decisions about your pregnancy and birth based on available evidence as well as your lived experience. My goal is to help you remember and stay connected to your power, to trust your body and to trust in birth.
It is my honor to support your decisions and preferences about your body, your baby, your birth.
Need help paying for doula care? Payment plans available, or add a doula fund to your baby registry.
As part of my commitment to reproductive justice, a percentage of all profits will be donated to Every Mother Counts, Doctors without Borders, Partners in Health, Cultural Survival, or an organization of your choice.
Birth Doula care
In order to best support families, I work in partnership with the amazing Amy Pyle Chow! Our partnership means that Amy and I support our clients as a team throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Our basic doula care package includes:
Two prenatal visits to discuss birth preferences & vision, explore childbirth prep & techniques for labor comfort and coping and create a postpartum plan (1 - 2 hrs each)
Text/email/phone support throughout pregnancy
24 hr. on-call support from 38 weeks to birth
Continuous labor support
One postpartum visit to process the birth experience, support newborn care and the transition home, answer any questions & discuss if other resources are necessary (lactation support, pelvic floor therapy, body work, counseling, etc). A nourishing meal and light cleaning always provided! (1-2 hrs each)
Option to add-on additional mind-body, childbirth education, or postpartum care if desired at a special rate.
Postpartum Doula Care
Two additional 4 hour postpartum visits (total 8 hours) are available to all of our birth doula clients. We get creative and design the visits around your current needs and prenatal discussions. If you are not a current birth doula client, please reach out regarding availability.
Examples of care in postpartum shifts include:
Newborn care and instruction (feeding, bathing, schedules, following cues, etc.) and basic lactation support
Household organization and light cleaning, including laundry
Running errands and food prep (weekly meal planning and prep available for an additional fee based on our availability)
Birth processing and partner check-in
Havening (healing modality that includes touch and talk)
Postnatal yoga, meditation or guided imagery
Caring for baby while you sleep, shower, take time for yourself in any way
Discussion of any necessary referrals and connections to other care
