Birth Doula Services

Supporting Families in the San Francisco Bay Area

My Services

24/7 On Call Support- 2 weeks before estimated due date until the birth of your baby. When it is your birth time I do not go out of town or do anything that would make me unavailable when you need me. I patiently wait for your baby to decide when it is time.

Active Labor Support- Starting at your home or the hospital. I then transfer with you to the hospital, providing hands on support until 1-2 hours after the birth.

Photographs- of your birth experience if desired. When I am not needed in other ways, I’m happy to take photos or videos before, during, and/or after the birth.

Postpartum Support

1 Postpartum Follow up- appointment which includes

  • Breastfeeding support 

  • Postpartum Referrals 

  • Opportunity to discuss your birth or any questions you may have.

 

Unlimited phone/text/email support- Up until 6 weeks post birth. There is so much to navigate post birth as well and I am here to help you transition into parenthood.

Investment: $1950 (Includes Prenatal, Birth and Postpartum Support)​

Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum can be very overwhelming, as a Doula I have the tools to help you each step of the way.

Inner Strength Birth Doula Services include:

Prenatal Support

Resources- Which books to read? Which classes to take? I provide a welcome resource document that gives you a wealth of resources in the Bay Area to help you better prepare for the birth you desire.

 

Two Prenatal Appointments

  • ​First prenatal- we will discuss your birth preferences and complete a birth preferences checklist that goes over many of the potential choices and decisions you could encounter during birth. 

  • Second prenatal- we will learn and practice comfort measures, teaching your partner how to best support you during your birth, enabling you both to have a better birth experience.

Unlimited phone/text/email support- Pregnancy and Birth is a very new experience. I am available to provide support, guidance, and answer questions throughout your pregnancy.

Free Monthly Group Meetings- on topics such as Babywearing, Comfort Measures during Labor, Newborn Care, and Optimal Fetal Positioning​​

Reviews

What are clients saying about me?

Bonnie M.

"Even after my birth, Meleah maintained in contact and provided a ton of support as I was navigating issues with breastfeeding.  Again, her genuine care for me and my baby and her desire to help us through our challenges was very evident.  There are so many wonderful things I could say about Meleah, but the bottom line is that she is truly gifted at what she does and I truly could not have asked for more in a doula!"
