Consulting & Birth Planning
You're pregnant. (Congratulations!) You have a million questions. Your doctor's visits just don't feel long enough to cover everything, or you have questions in between appointments.
You've got Google, well-meaning friends and family, and a list of books - but sometimes what you really need is one-on-one time with a trusted and experienced professional.
Private prenatal consulting is the perfect choice for parents wanting access to the knowledge and experience of a Doula during their pregnancy, but not necessarily have the in-person support at the birth. You can choose from virtual or in-person sessions, to fit your needs.
If you have questions like:
Where should I have my baby?
Should I have a birth doula?
What should I expect with a cesarean?
How will I know when my baby is hungry?
What are some tricks to calm my crying baby?
Or if you're curious about:
Epidurals and other pain medication.
Labor comfort measures.
How your partner can best support you.
Typical newborn procedures.
Creating a birth or postpartum plan.
Breastfeeding and pumping.
. . . then consulting with a doula is right for you!
In addition to the expertise of a trusted and reputable BMD Doula, every consulting session can include:
an assessment of your family's needs and goals
customized pregnancy, birth and postpartum plans, if desired
professional referrals applicable to your needs
exclusive downloads/handouts applicable to your needs
