Prenatal & Birth Doula
I am here to assist in whatever capacity you need me. I can help you clarify and envision your ideal birth plan, answer any pregnancy or labor questions you may have along the way, and teach you and your partner ways to make early labor contractions as comfortable as possible. As your labor contractions begin, I can be there with you the entire time using hands on massage techniques, as well as movement, and breath and sound instruction to help you through the incredible rite of passage that is childbirth.
I am also entirely available to stay with you after the baby arrives until you feel comfortable and secure with your new family. A few days following the birth, I’ll come check on you and your newborn baby, and discuss postpartum support options in the months that follow.
Postpartum Doula Services
As a postpartum doula, I am available to come to your home for a few hours at a time and help with whatever you need. Sometimes that might mean running errands, light cleaning or preparing food,or delivering meals, while at other times it may involve helping to care for your newborn so Mom can rest. I can offer postnatal massage and gentle or restorative yoga instruction. Postpartum support varies widely and is difficult to anticipate until your baby actually arrives, so we can figure out what’s best together when the time comes.
Mom by LJ postpartum visits are usually a minimum of 4 hours each, and come in packages of 20, 40 and 100 hours.
