I will meet you for two prenatal visits. The first is to gather information, and discuss your concerns and preferences for the birth. We will work together to formulate a birth plan, if one hasn’t been written yet, or discuss the birth plan that has been written. I will offer resources to assist with any of your concerns.
The second meeting should be held during the last month of your pregnancy. We will go over comfort measures that I can provide and ways your partner can assist you in early labor. I will answer any questions and go over procedures for contacting me once you are in early labor.
I will be available on-call (24 hours, 7 days a week) for two weeks prior to your due date. Please contact me at the early onset of your labor in order for me to have time to reach you at your home or the hospital/birth center. If labor starts prior to 38 weeks, I will still be available. In the event that I cannot attend your birth due to some unforeseen circumstances, a backup doula will be provided that I will compensate directly.
I will provide unlimited phone, text and e-mail support throughout pregnancy and early labor. I will also provide access to my lending library of books to support your learning.
