We work as a team to provide custom tailored prenatal support! Our collaborative approach creates time and space to answer questions, celebrating each milestone, participating in the prenatal meeting/s you schedule, allowing you to get to know each one of us, and then encouraging you in the on-call period leading up to your birth.
Each doula alternates taking one week of call time for our families as they near the birth of their babies. We work on a rotating weekly schedule to keep our energy vibrant. If our designated on-call doula is already at a birth when you go into labor or need us by your side, we always have the remaining two doulas who are able to jump into action.
The doula lucky enough to support you at your birth also visits you at your postpartum check-in after you come home.
We only confirm consultation appointments when we are sure we have availability for your due date. We value your time and energy greatly, and we always let families know if we are close to filling a birth month.
We host blocks of 45-minute interviews at our studio twice a month—that way you can meet all three of us at the same time (so long as one of us isn’t at a birth, of course)!
If that isn’t convenient enough for you, we can also schedule phone or web consultations, too. These are limited by our schedule, but we always want to make sure you get a chance to connect.
We work as a team to create a blanket of support for you, alternating the skills and character of each doula to nurture you along the period of support you desire.
Complete our intake form in the contact section of our website with as much detail as possible—the more details of what you’re looking for, especially in terms of timing, the better!
We offer in-person consultations for those planning postpartum support in advance.
We connect with families who reach out to us after their baby is born via phone or web consultations. We love answering questions, describing our support style and seeing if you feel comfortable moving forward from that point on.
