Birth Consultant vs Birth Doula

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

You're in desperate need of someone to help you navigate the ups and downs of pregnancy, preparing for birth, and handling the postpartum transition. Yet, you're a private person who just KNOWS that you would feel hung up and self-conscious with extra people in the room during labor and birth. ⁠

Many people WANT the hands-on, in-person labor support that a doula can offer. Partners like not being the only person available to help mom and moms like having a professional who will stay with them through shift changes, answer questions and bring a calm presence to the room no matter how the birth plays out. ⁠

However, there are also plenty of people who want their birth experience to be as private as possible and even a doula feels like too much. I get that, I do. ⁠

That's why we have started offering a new birth consultant service. This service includes all of the same prenatal appointments as our regular doula package- allowing you to ask questions, get a refresher on the birth process, walk through birth planning, practice comfort techniques and more. It also includes on-call phone, text and email support during your pregnancy, labor, and birth as well as two postpartum follow-up visits to help make sure that you are equipped with the support and resources that you need to have an enjoyable postpartum transition. ⁠ ⁠ Everything but the in-person labor support.⁠ ⁠ If you're interested, visit our website today for more info. ⁠
