YAY!! Great News! You’re pregnant!!

 

Expanding your family and welcoming your baby is such a joyful celebration! However, it can be a tad scary; there are unknowns and often

un-expectancies. You will probably have lots of questions during your pregnancy. Birthways Doula Care is here to walk with you throughout your journey. We are here to answer questions; listen to your concerns and help you develop the best plan as you welcome your baby home.

 

As a labor doula, we will be at your side during your labor; however, we will never overstep our boundaries and take the place of your support person. We will help to make your birthing space feel very calm and positive. We will recognize the signs as labor progresses and may suggest position changes and/or movements. We are here to help keep your birth plan on track and help you to feel empowered. You (and your birthing partner) will feel confident, heard and respected during your birth process.

 

We’d love to photograph your newest moments, if you desire. We will stay with you until baby has his/her first feeding, or approximately 2 hours after birth. After you bring baby home, we will schedule a postpartum visit to help with family transitions, feedings and overall mommy & baby care.
