What's included

Birth planning & preparation: Get advice and make informed decisions to help you and your partner plan for the birth experience you want. Just as importantly, feel prepared for whatever comes your way if things don’t go exactly as planned on delivery day.

Labor & delivery support: You'll have continuous support throughout labor progression with a focus on movement and positioning. Your doula will be there to help you vocalize your preferences and ensure you and your partner have the encouragement and guidance you need for this life changing moment.

Postnatal at-home visit: Your doula will check in to see how you’re settling in, make sure you’re recovering well, and share tried and true advice on baby and infant care.

Clinical research has quantified the benefits of continuous labor support from doulas

Postpartum doula care

Give yourself time to rest, recover, and bond with your new baby. Our postpartum doulas are experts in their field, but just as importantly they love supporting newborns and their families. Choose from daytime or overnight care, so you have extra hands for when you need to sleep, take a break to shower, or need guidance on everything from breastfeeding to your parenting style.

What's included

Infant care: Learn how to do the snuggest swaddling, bathe those newborn rolls, and layer onesies for the weather—plus, get support with your eat-wake-sleep routine, infant CPR, and more.

Daytime or overnight support: Make time for self care, and rest more peacefully knowing your doula has the experience to care for your newborn. Get tips on making sure your physical and emotional recovery is on track, too.

Light household management: Get help with chores such as preparing bottles or organizing your nursery—and even with light errands and meal prep (think coffee and oatmeal) to help you stay on top of your daily tasks.
