Pregnancy and Postpartum
I want you to feel confident and prepared for your birth. As your doula, I will be with you every step of the way through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I am committed to understanding your unique needs and concerns, and customize each service to fit your birthing preferences. Contact me today to learn more and schedule a complimentary consultation meeting.
As a Birth Doula, I give you the undivided, unbiased attention and professional support needed to ensure your journey is as safe and positive as possible. I will be available for you to contact me at any time. I will be committed to whatever you feel would benefit you, your baby, and your family. Whether you choose to deliver in a hospital, birth center or at home, I will be with you every step of the way. I will guide you through your labor, delivery and take some photographs during that “golden hour” after birth. I will also follow up with a postpartum visit during that first week after birth. Get in touch today to learn more about this service. Packages start at $800.
This service, designed for after labor, will provide the emotional, informational and physical support that you need at home after baby has arrived. Some services include but are not limited to lactation guidance, through the night companionship, meal prep, sibling care, light housekeeping, lifestyle photography session, etc. This service is billed at the hourly rate of $25/hour. Postpartum photography and newborn photography are separate.
The question often arises of who will take care of the younger children when mom and dad are headed to the hospital or when the midwife arrives for a home birth. No need to worry, I have got you covered. As a Sibling Doula I can help care for the needs of your children so that you can focus on the task at hand. I can perform light housekeeping and cook up nutritious meals. If we are at the birth center and you want your children present, I can help to explain to them in an age appropriate way what is happening and help to alleviate any fears or anxiety about what is going on with mommy. A sibling doula can enhance your birth plan and give you the peace of mind you need to concentrate and relax at your birth knowing your children are in good hands.

I've known about doulas for quite some time, but previously had never felt the need to have one assist me through my first 2 births - I thought my medical team and husband would be more than enough support. I was curious to see if having a doula at my third birth would make any difference. A part of me was a little worried that I wouldn't need her there at all and that there wouldn't be anything for her to do. I had epidurals during my first 2 deliveries and fully anticipated that I would have another epidural with my third. Meeting with Anna, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were actually several ways she could help during a planned medicated birth.
Because I planned to labor for as long as possible at home, Anna came to my house and supported me there during early labor. I was in no hurry to get to the hospital, considering that my previous labors had lasted 25 hours and 14 hours, but a few hours after my contractions started Anna encouraged me to make the choice to make the trip to the hospital. I'm so glad I listened to her! My baby was born within 2 hours of arriving at the hospital and within 45 minutes of entering the labor and delivery room, even though I was only dilated to 6cm at that point. The epidural I had planned on didn't happen because there simply wasn't time for it to happen. This was NOT the delivery my husband and I had expected! Throughout the experience Anna was a constant and calm presence. She did such a wonderful job of helping me relax through labor pains as well as helping my husband effectively help and participate with confidence. This was a pretty big deal because my husband has expressed many times that he has felt completely helpless during our other deliveries.
Her encouragement and assistance throughout labor made so much more of a difference than I ever could have imagined and I am so grateful that she was part of our very memorable birth experience! --Kimberlee S.
