Labor Support Doula Care
We are happy to offer highly personalized labor support doula services to the Austin area mamas and families! When working with our practice you will select your own primary doula and backup doula team who you will then come to know throughout your pregnancy. We believe in developing a sacred trust and bond between you and your doula and look forward to connecting you with the doula of your dreams!
Having a doula present at your birth can benefit you, your partner, and your baby in numerous ways including a shorter and more satisfying labor experience, decreased rates of interventions and cesarean sections, and more success with breastfeeding! With our highly personalized approach we are sure you will be in good hands with one of our doulas.
Our package of labor support doula services includes the following:
- Continuous Phone/email support from the date of hire
- On-call services from 37 weeks until the time you give birth
- Two prenatal visits, in your home, to discuss your hopes and expectations of your birthing experience and to help you create your own narrative for the birth experience of your choice
- Continuous informational, emotional, and physical support from the time your labor begins until your baby is born. We highly encourage women to labor at home for as long as they’re comfortable and your doula team will be there to support you during this time!
- Ongoing support for the first few hours after your baby is born to assist with the initial transition to parenting and breastfeeding
- One to two postpartum visits during which the doula will come to your home to offer referrals, if needed, within a few days of your return home to the first two weeks postpartum
- Yoga Yoga passes for one free prenatal yoga class of your choice
- Each of our doulas receives ongoing mentoring from our Directors and regular continuing education! You will also have access to the expertise of our Directors should you ever need.
