Each member of Doulas Etc. offers support as a birth doula. You can get a feel for our personalities and experience on our About Page and set up a coffee date to ask questions in person. Picking the right doula really comes down to comfort and fit, deciding who you would be most comfortable with during such an intimate time. Know that we all serve our clients in a similar way. After your consult we meet for two prenatal visits to discuss your options for birth, outline your research in a birth plan and practice comfort measures. Your doula is then on-call for you by 38 weeks until baby arrives and will join you in active labor to provide continuous support for you and your partner. We will stay with you during the "golden hour" and help you establish breastfeeding then schedule a postpartum house visit to process your birth experience!
Birth Photography and Video
Welcoming your child into the world can be a wonderful experience. Surrounded by mystery, emotion, love, eagerness and bliss; afterwards it can be difficult to remember the details. Jessica offers birth photography as an add-on service to doula clients or can focus solely on capturing your experience and creating a birth video of your birth!
