If you're interested in our Childbirth Education classes, you may add those on to either coverage package for just $200!
This package will allow you to select the doula partners you would prefer to be available for your birth. The doulas you choose to work with will arrange to go through the two prenatal classes in the privacy of your home, and around your schedule. This time is designed to build your relationship with your doulas while you explore your choices in birth together. The doulas you have chosen will be available via text and phone throughout your pregnancy. The doulas you have chosen will then be on-call for your birth for the two weeks before and after your estimated due date.
Your doulas will work with you to decide at what point you would like one of them to join you in your labor. They will ensure that you have continuous support for up to two hours after the delivery of your baby to help you with your recovery, and to help establish your initial feeding. They will then arrange to visit you for a postpartum appointment in your home. At that time we will talk through your labor, we will make sure you are recovering well, and answer any questions about your self or your baby.In the event your selected doulas are both unable to be present for your labor, they will arrange for the doula on-call to support you until one of your selected doulas becomes available. Our Birth Coverage package is $1,200.
Caesarean Birth Coverage
This package is for clients who are planning a scheduled caesarean birth. Our C-section specialist, Kathryn DiPalma, will come alongside you to help you understand the mechanics and expectations of caesarean birth, and prepare for the unique experience of a caesarean birth. She will arrange to go through your prenatal meeting in the privacy of your home, and around your schedule. This time is designed to build your relationship with her while you explore your choices in birth together.
Kathryn will be available via text and phone throughout your pregnancy. She will join you at the hospital on the day of your birth to help you as you prepare for your caesarean, and stay with you through the duration of your birth, and two hours postpartum as you recover. She will help to implement skin-to-skin and baby's initial feeding during that time.
Kathryn will then arrange to visit you for a postpartum appointment in your home. At that time you will talk through your birth, make sure you are recovering well, and answer any questions about your self or your baby.
In the event Kathryn is unable to be present for your labor, she will arrange for one of our partners to support you in your birth or until she becomes available.
Our Caesarean Birth Coverage package is $600.
To reserve your spot in our calendar, we require a signed contract and a deposit of $400. The remaining balance is due by the 38th week of your pregnancy. If you are past your 34th week of pregnancy, or you would like to discuss labor coverage only, please contact us to discuss your options.
Childbirth Education Services
We believe that being educated about your body in labor, your choices in childbirth, and your options of coping techniques can help prepare you and your partner to move confidently toward your labor. The birth of your baby is a pivotal moment for your family, and we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make it as calm and as positive of an experience as possible. We will meet together for four consecutive weeks. Each of our partner doulas will teach one of the classes, and will be available to spend some time answering your questions. Although you can take each class independently, we highly recommend that you complete the series of four, if possible.
The four classes included in our prenatal package are:
Labor & Birth
This class will explore the mechanics of labor and birth. We will discover the many variations of normal birth, the incredible way your body works to bring your baby into the world, and what all of those wires, beeps, and medications are for.
Classes are $75 per couple for one class or $250 per couple for all four classes.
Each class is offered conveniently in your home and around your schedule.
In addition to our childbirth series, we offer an assortment of other services to help you prepare for this new stage.
We'd love to help you celebrate the incredible beauty of your expecting body by making a plaster cast of your belly. This time creates a wonderful momento of your pregnancy while giving you a relaxing, hands-on experience.
This option is $50.
