Preparation and Support for Your Birth

Here for you

every step of the way.

Virtual Services

CONNECTION AND SUPPORT THROUGH TECHNOLOGY

For those who are giving birth in a setting where doulas are not permitted because of COVID-19 precautions, prefer to limit contact, or live outside East Central Alabama, I am now offering a fully online support package for birth preparation and virtual labor support. Our emphasis will be on taking extra time for preparation during pregnancy so that you and your partner are thoroughly ready for birth.

In Person Support

ONLINE PRENATAL MEETINGS, IN PERSON FOR BIRTH

This option is for those in or near East Central Alabama whose birth setting allows for the presence of a doula.  While the world is practicing "social distancing" to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus, all prenatal meetings will be done online.  Then on the day of labor I will join you for in-person support.

Hybrid Support

ONLINE MEETINGS, IN-HOME EARLY LABOR SUPPORT, VIRTUAL SUPPORT IN HOSPITAL

For those who are giving birth in a setting where doulas are not permitted because of COVID-19  but want the maximum support possible, I am now offering a hybrid online and in-person package. You will receive top-notch preparation through online meetings and classes. I will join you at home when you are in labor, and then give virtual support when you get to the hospital. Available for those living in or near East Central Alabama.

Need an Online Childbirth Class?

The Birth Village Class, the childbirth prep series I co-teach with Sarah Doyle, the Joyful Doula, has transitioned to an all online format for "social distancing" purposes. Learn from two experienced doulas who know the local birth scene. Even if you decide not to hire a doula, you can be better prepared for birth by taking the Birth Village Class.

The Birth Village Class is now included in all of my doula packages.
