My Services

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.

Monthly Group Meetingson 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.
