Emotional, informational, physical, and spiritual support for the moment you become a parent *
At either your home or place of your choice, we meet to see if we are a good fit. We will chat about what you are looking for in a doula, I will answer any questions you have, and will run down the logistics of hiring me.
I encourage people to take some time after we meet to chat about whether or not we would work well together. Once we decide to work together I will be in touch to set up our first prenatal meeting.
In your last trimester we will meet two to three times in your home to establish and build a relationship. During this time we will talk about your birth dreams and hopes, go over your plans and desires, I will answer questions you may have and help you gather any resources you may need, we will talk about comfort measures, and we will go over any postpartum plans you may have or help you need in creating this plan.
During our first prenatal visit, I will collect the first half of my payment and we will go over my Birth Doula relationship agreement.
I go “on-call” for you two weeks before your due date, which means I am available for you by phone or text whenever you need support and am also readily available when you go into labor.
Once you decide you’d like me at your labor, I will provide continuous support throughout labor and birth and up to three hours postpartum.
During this time I offer emotional and physical support. Also facilitating conversations between you and your medical providers.
I will visit you within the first three days postpartum and then again within the first six weeks. I am also available over the phone and text at this time. These visits are for me to support the transition into having the little one at home. At our final postpartum we will review the birth together.
"Angharad is a great listener; a wonderful help during those difficult times during labor, and she always asked me what I wanted. She was one of my biggest supporters. Labor/Birth was easier with her around."
