Your Birth, Your Baby, Your Way
*Free consultation in person or via Skype to determine your needs for birthing support
*Support during your pregnancy as you prepare for birth and parenting. We will utilize birth planning tools to discuss your preferences and needs. We will work together to create your unique birth plan, practice comfort measures, and work with your partner on supportive birth team dynamics.
*I am on-call 24/7 for your labor and birth from the moment you hire me until your baby is born. I limit my monthly calendar to a small number of births to ensure a quality relationship with each client. I work with an excellent team of professional and experienced doulas from Queen City Doulas for back-up so your birth is always covered.

*Immediate postpartum support to help with birth recovery, getting settled with your newborn and initiating breastfeeding and bonding
*Two postpartum home visits: during your first week home, and then between 4-6 weeks postpartum to help you transition peacefully into parenthood. We will debrief your birth experience, plan for continued postpartum wellness, and discuss any questions you have.
*Access to my library of pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, parenting resources
*Continued Text or email support for 6 weeks postpartum
*Aromatherapy specially designed to support your labor
*2nd prenatal visit as needed to answer questions and review birthing options, or attendance at one of your prenatal appointments with your care provider

I am always willing to work with clients on flexible payment plans, income-based sliding scale and tailoring packages to best suit your needs!
*A portion of my fee from any doula services goes directly to W.I.S.E. Community Doulas, a grassroots organization in Charlotte whose mission is to improve the maternal and infant health outcome and disparities of women of color, by fostering a community that advocates, educates, empowers and supports pregnant people, their growing families, and the professionals who work with them, during the childbirth continuum.
