What I Do

What I do:

Prenatal:

  • Meet with you 2-3 times in order to become familiar with you and the father/partner
  • Assist you in formulating your birth preferences
  • Answer any question by phone or e-mail and supply you with evidence based information and resources
  • Be on call 24/7 two weeks before and after your due date

During Labor:

  • Provide continuous emotional support
  • Provide non-medical comfort measures such as massage, counter pressure, hot/cold and suggesting position changes
  • Facilitate communication with your caregivers
  • Take pictures/video, if desired

Postpartum:

  • Assist the mother with breastfeeding, if desired
  • Provide continued support by phone and direct you to additional resources if needed.
  • Meet with you approximately two weeks postpartum to review the birth and answer any questions you may have
