Virtual Doula Support
Virtual services differ from traditional in that all of our communication happens over live video streaming, phone or text. While I will not be there in person, you still get the benefit of having one on one emotional support, on demand education, my experience and wisdom to walk you through what you are experiencing.
After you hire me, I am here for support throughout your pregnancy, every step of the way. I am available via phone, email, and text to answer any questions or concerns you might have during this exciting time. This includes providing education, information to help you plan and prepare for birth and your baby, monthly pregnancy related emails, and recommendations for trusted community resources. You can stop all the Google searches! This makes the journey so much more enjoyable.
During this virtual prenatal meeting we will talk about your options for labor and birth, explore your preferences and goals, discuss your needs and desires for labor support, and I will help you create a birth plan that reflects your vision for your birthing-day.
