Birth Support

support during birth for couples in Palm Beach CountyBirth is guaranteed to be one of the most significant rites of passage in your life.  What do you imagine for your childbirth experience?  How can I help make it the birth of your dreams?  When you’re ready to make it happen, who will be there to support you and your partner?  Let’s do this together.

Striving to meet the range of physical, mental, spiritual, and financial needs of all families, we customize your birth support to your unique labor, and offer two different packages with the option to add additional prenatal and postpartum meetings.


Traditional Birth Support Package (recommended):

  • 1 hour complimentary consult / interview
  • 1-2 additional prenatal meetings (total 4 hours)
  • Prenatal meetings are personalized to your particular interests.  You are welcome, but not limited, to use this time for any of the following:
    • crafting a birth plan
    • crafting a postpartum plan
    • practicing labor techniques
    • creating birth art
    • preparing your body for birth with a muscle balancing session
    • preparing your children for their roles during your labor, if they will be present
  • Guaranteed back-up doula in the rare event that one is required
  • 24/7 phone support for questions, encouragement, and suggestions as soon as labor begins
  • Continuous, physical presence during the entirety* of your labor, as soon as you decide you are ready for me to meet you at your location
  • Complimentary photography of your labor and delivery on your own personal camera
  • Notes and quotations from your labor and birth
  • Immediate postpartum support for up to two hours after the birth
  • In-home postpartum follow-up meeting, to debrief the birth experience and/or take a nap or shower while I take care of some household or baby care tasks
  • Phone support prenatally and postpartum
  • Exclusive rates on birth pool rentals and placenta encapsulation.


Doula for a Day / Birth Only Package (for the experienced or the already laboring mother):

  • Unlimited phone / FaceTime / Skype support prenatally and during labor
  • Continuous, physical presence for your entire* labor, as soon as you need me
  • Photography on your personal camera
  • Notes and quotations from your labor and birth
  • Up to two hours of in-person support immediately after the birth
  • Postpartum phone support for the first 6 weeks
  • Guaranteed back-up doula in the rare instance that one is required (only for those reserving this service in advance)

The “Doula for a Day” package was designed with repeat clients in mind, but others who are more experienced at giving birth or who have budget constraints may prefer this option.  This is also the package for you if you are making a last-minute decision to hire a doula and have already begun labor.  However, my availability (and that of my back-up doula) is only guaranteed for families that secure this service in advance.  If you are looking for a last-minute doula, first call me at 561-827-3263, ensuring that you leave a message if your call is not answered.  If your call is not returned in a timely manner, it may be due to my presence at another birth or postpartum job.  You are welcome, in such an event, to continue calling or texting, or to attempt hiring the doula on call from Miami’s Gathering Place (786-393-0312).

*In rare circumstances that I am at your birth for an extended period of time, a back-up doula may be called in to trade places with me and bring fresh energy to your birth space.  This is a decision we will make together and only when necessary.
