Basic Birth Package

Basic Birth Package


My job as a birth doula is to be a support for you emotionally and physically during your prenatal, postpartum, and birthing periods. So many transitions at this time in life can leave parents feeling overwhelmed, even with loving family and friends around. For those who do not have their family close by, or don't want loved ones to alter their personal visions for birth, a doula is a knowledgeable and neutral support who can help balance dynamics, while making sure the mother/birthing person is getting what they want and need. Before the birth, I can help educate you with evidence-based information so that you can make informed decisions without the burden of research being added to your new-parent to-do list, and we will use that information to create a birth plan.

During labour, I will:

  • Use comfort measures we agree upon such as massage and relaxation techniques, breathing guidance, position support, verbal encouragement and a caring hand.
  • Provide support to family members present by listening compassionately, affording them breaks to eat and rest, and encouraging their support of the birthing partner.
  • Help you measure and time your contractions, and educate you about when to contact your primary caregiver.
  • Communicate the birth plan to your caregivers when you are unable to, so that your wishes are respected every step of the way.
  • Respond to your needs with undivided attention.

This basic birth package includes: 

  • 2 Prenatal Visits
  • One month on-call for your birth
  • 1 Postpartum visit
