Birth doulas are permitted to attend births at Rhode Island hospitals.
I am also offering virtual doula support to accommodate social distancing recommendations.
Please reach out to discuss your needs and how I may be able to support your birth experience.
As a certified, professional Birth Doula in Providence, RI, I offer personalized prenatal, labor, and birth support.
My objective is to empower parents in a positive birth experience that contributes to a holistic, healthy start. I will give you and your family the support and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your pregnancy and labor process.
To learn more about me and my services please get in touch.
BIRTH DOULA SERVICES
In our prenatal meetings, we will explore your priorities for your birth. I will present evidence-based information regarding the risks and benefits of common interventions and procedures during childbirth. We will discuss how we can best work together to achieve your ideal birth experience. Until the time of your birth, I will remain in touch, available to you by phone and/or e-mail.
During labor, I provide emotional and physical support. I can facilitate communication with medical staff to ensure you have the information you need to make informed decisions. I can provide perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for your comfort.
After your birth, I will remain with you and your family until you are settled. I can provide breastfeeding support within my scope. We will meet at least once in the weeks after your birth to discuss your birth experience and assess any emotional or physical health needs. I will provide a nutritious meal and remain available to you for any future questions or referrals.
I believe all families deserve access to a doula and offer my services on a sliding scale, based on family income.
I welcome discussion of payment plans, trades and barters.
