My services include:
A no-obligation meeting to chat and see if we will work well together as a team.
Two prenatal meetings - the first between 28-30 weeks and the second around 36 weeks. During this time we will discuss your birth preferences, expectations and fears, pain relief, comfort measures, stages of labour and hospital procedures; as well as anything else you may wish to discuss regarding your pregnancy and upcoming birth.
Email/phone support throughout your pregnancy.
24/7 on call starting at 38 weeks until the birth of your baby. Once you are in labour I will join you whenever you feel you need my support and will meet you either at your home, hospital or birth centre. I will stay with you until one to two hours after the birth of your baby and will help you in the initial postpartum period, including helping to establish breastfeeding if desired. I have two doulas who are available to provide me with back up in the unlikely event that I am unable to attend your birth, and will inform you if that situation arises.
One postpartum meeting 5-10 days after the birth of your baby, however this is completely dependent upon each family's needs and can occur earlier or later if necessary. During this time we will recap your birth experience, discuss any postpartum needs you might have, and I will help you find any necessary postpartum resources. I will also offer basic breastfeeding support and I provide a written birth story if desired which I will bring to the postpartum visit.
I support home, birth centre and hospital births and take clients in Calgary, Airdrie and Chestermere.
My fee for services is $900.00
