Birth Doula

€1400 + 19%VAT

  • One complimentary consultation - Getting to know your doula at first can be really helpful to see if we are a great fit for one another. 

  • Three prenatal visits (1.5 hours each) -  During these visits we take time to get to know each other and learn how we can best support you. We'll work together to build your preferences for birth and address questions about interventions, hospital/home birth/birth center protocol, and the physiology of labor and birth as we go. We demonstrate and practice comfort measures and positions for labor with you (and your partner), and discuss how we'll work as a team both at home and at your birth place.

  • Email, text, phone support - From the time we sign our agreement to our postpartum visit, we are available to answer questions and give support via email, text or phone calls.

  • Continuous labor support - From 38 - 42 weeks, we are on call for your labor. Jes will join you when you need and offer:

    • Emotional support and reassurance

    • Hands on support through massage, counter pressure, and hot/cold therapy
