Birth Doula Services
“Let choice whisper in your ear and love murmur in your heart.
Be ready. Here comes life.”
– Maya Angelou
Our doula services are separate from and complimentary to our childbirth education classes, providing options for mothers and their partners to obtain real-time informational, practical and emotional support during their birthing and postpartum experiences.
A Doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
Research shows that women who use birth doulas have more enjoyable birth experiences and are less likely to use pain medicine, need Pitocin to induce labor, or have a cesarean.
M.A.M.A. supports all birth choices and is educated and trained to help expecting mothers and families have their dream birth experiences. We meet with families before, during and after labor. Before labor, we provide information on birthing options and assist with the creation of birth plans. During labor, we help execute birth plans while providing continuous emotional support, reassurance, and coaching for birth partners as they provide physical comfort to the laboring woman. After labor, we connect with families to ensure their transition to parenthood is off to a good start.
We recommend clients book our services between 23-26 weeks. Our rate is $1,600 and services include:
✔ Three (3) prenatal visits to discuss your birth plan, comfort measures and partner preparation.
✔ Continuous labor support
✔ One (1) postpartum visit
✔ Unlimited consultation from date of hire through your postpartum visit, to be scheduled within 40 days following birth
