How will you know what I want for my birth?

I meet with clients one to two times before birth. During these meetings, we discuss your preferences, practice positions and comfort measures and devise a birth preference document, if you wish. You can choose to bring this to your doctor or use just between us. The most important thing in working with a doula is that you are compatible and communicate comfortably.

 

What happens when I go into labor?

Call or text me when you think "this might be it". I will be available by phone to help you decide if/when to head to the hospital or birth center or head to your home or to address any concerns or questions you may have. I recommend laboring at home for as long as possible, but I know that this is not always possible, nor does everyone prefer this. I am open to creating the type of safe, personal experience YOU desire. I am available to assist you while you labor at home before you head to the hospital or birthing center, or will meet you at your birthing location; whichever is more comfortable for you. I am open to deliveries in homes with a midwife present; birthing centers; or hospitals.

 

What if I have questions or concerns before the birth?

Text, call, or email me. I consider that a part of my job. If I do not answer, leave a message and I will get back to you right away.

 

Will you always be available?

I know how important it is to have the doula you have chosen with you when you go into labor. Because of that, I limit the number of clients I will assist each month. However, labor is unpredictable and does not always cooperate with the best laid plans. Because of this, I have back up doulas with similar philosophies.

 

What do you offer and what are your fees?

I offer doula services alone or package deals listed under services. Sliding scales are available. Please ask if this is something that you need. Scholarships are sometimes available through Doulas of Greater Kansas City.
