Learn tools and techniques to prepare you for birth.
I’m often asked “Do I need to take a birth class if I hire you as my doula?”
My answer? Yes!
During our time together, my goal is to build a trusting relationship with you and your partner. I’ll get to know you both, learn about your birth plan and preferences, and what kind of support you want (or don’t want).
In those visits, we’ll talk about signs of labor, what to expect, when to call me, when I’ll arrive, and my role in helping you get settled at your birth place. And I’ll help provide guidance and answer your questions along the way.
When having conversations about the labor progress, position changes, comfort measures or decision-making...my clients who have taken a class are more prepared for these discussions and make adjustments.
I can set you up with the basics that you need to know. But, although I wish I could, I can’t provide you with ALL the information you need to prepare for birth during our limited time together.
That’s why I include access to my childbirth classes in my birth doula support packages. You’ll gain the necessary tools and skills you need to feel confident and prepared for the birth of your baby.
And that way our time together can be focused on developing our relationship and setting you up for a calm, smooth birth experience.
