The Arizona Doula Experience
During our prenatal visits, we’ll discuss your hopes, concerns, and expectations regarding your birth. I’ll walk you and your partner through identifying your individual desires and needs for your unique experience. I’ll share with you the tools and techniques that will help to make informed decisions for yourself and for your baby. I’ll guide you in assembling your birth preference plan and we’ll practice hands-on comfort techniques that can assist you in labor. These meetings will fully prepare you for when to call me, how my on-call time works and what my support will look like on your big day.
I want to replace Google for your burning questions and concerns that are keeping you up at night. I’m your go-to person for information, feelings you want to process out loud and times you just need a little bit of nonjudgmental support in a world full of other people’s opinions. We can chat after your doctor’s visits and catch up when anything changes course. I can help you find additional support if you need it or share with you my expanding collection of trusted referrals and resources. Your fears will be eased and your peace restored with me just a phone call away.
Once you’re ready for me to join you in labor, I will meet you at home or at your birthplace. You will have my continuous physical and emotional support through comfort measures, gentle guidance and encouragement for the duration of your labor and birth. I’ll be a steady presence, knowledgeable about your wishes, what works for you for comfort and what you’re hoping to have happen from our private prenatal/education visits. I’ll work collaboratively with your chosen provider, nurses, and partner to round out your birth team.
