ALL prenatal visits will consist of us discussing a number of things.
First, we will go over your birth plan, prepare & inform ourselves on the birth plan, possible interventions, etc.
Secondly, we will go over comfort measures, things we can do to assist delivery, exercises, pelvic floor techniques, feeding, postpartum, etc. I will answer all questions, discuss fears, goals, etc

Postpartum visits will last between 1-2 hours long, and are expected from 1-8 days postpartum
All postpartum shifts start the same, we sill sit down, & talk about how you are recovering, how your process has looked like so far, and what you feel you may need from me, as your doula.
From there, I will build a plan with you, and work on that during every shift. We may update or alter that plan as things change.
As your postpartum doula , I am willing to do whatever I feel would benefit you.
Depending on which package was purchased, I will either meet you at the birthing place when it is time, or I will come to you and assist you through early labor until we decide it is time to go to the birthing place
