What is a Birth Doula?
A birth doula is a trained, professional, non-medical childbirth assistant. Doulas provide nurturing support to growing families, in the form of emotional and physical support, as well as evidence-based information. Doulas also help parents advocate for themselves in the birth setting and facilitate communication and support between the birthing person, partner(s), and care team.
How will Pillow Talk of Birth support your birth?
Unlimited email and text support.
From the time of hire until 6 weeks postpartum, you can email or text us and expect a response within 24-48 hours (usually sooner). Do you have a question or concern? Shoot us a text or email.
Each birth doula package includes:
(1) Childbirth Ed. Class
(1) Prenatal Class
(1) Postpartum home visit
(Our visits will enable you to feel fully informed, prepared, and supported for your birth and postpartum experience. This time will allow us to build a trusting relationship. Each visit lasts 2.5 to 3 hours).
Labor and birth support (this includes 24/7 on-call availability from 37 weeks until the baby is born. During this time, you can call when you go into labor at any time of the day or night and we will respond immediately).
Birth notes and photography
(There are lots of details, funny or sweet moments, and milestones that tend to get lost in that rosy post-birth mental haze. For this reason, we will take notes for you to help you remember the timeline of events from your baby’s birthday. We can also take photos for you during or after the birth, so you can capture the moments that matter most)
Access to a carefully curated library of evidence-based information exclusively for our clients. Our library includes articles from some of our favorite birthy resources like Penny Simkin and Evidence-Based Birth. We also include lists of helpful community resources, insights, and words of wisdom.
