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:
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.
Monthly Group Meetings- on topics such as Babywearing, Comfort Measures during Labor, Newborn Care, and Optimal Fetal Positioning
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.
1 Postpartum Follow up- appointment which includes
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.
