“With Birth Partners, it’s not just about the day of the birth"
Now offering "All But the Birth" doula services! Inspired by our clients!
Because so much of our work with our birth doula clients is prenatal, and due to coronavirus restrictions at some birthplaces, we’ve had multiple requests for the high quality support we offer our clients up to - but not including - support during the birth itself.
"All But the Birth" doula service may be the perfect option for clients who prefer more privacy, or who feel that, with the exceptional foundation we provide them during the prenatal time and labor at home, they will have the tools they need during birth.
Your "All But the Birth" doula is expertly paired to your needs, and includes:
One in-home prenatal visit to discuss your birth preferences and help write your birth plan
Resources & information regarding options, providers, education, reading materials, pediatric care, etc.
In home visit
Unlimited texting support throughout your pregnancy
Benefit of Birth Partners’ reputation & experience with most every doctor, midwives, staff and birth locations
Identification of comfort measures
Assistance writing birth plan (if desired)
After the Birth:
One in-home postpartum visit to address any questions or concerns you may be having
