This pregnancy and birth is a once in a lifetime event, you will never be pregnant with this baby again...make the most of it! Did you know that much of your birth experience can be shaped by preparation and information? Check out the services offered!
Prenatal Education Package:
Knowledge is power! By equipping and informing yourself, you will gain confidence and peace. Because I believe in this so much, I have pursued my childbirth educator training to offer classes for you! Please consider investing in a class, I am happy to help you find a fit! I strongly suggest you take the Prep 4 Birth 3 week childbirth education series. It is very detailed, personal, equipping and hands on!
Following the Prep 4 Birth class, if you choose to then hire me as your doula, or if you secure my doula services and then register for the class, the $89 will be credited towards the final cost.
I have a beautiful barn studio available for the classes!
New Life Doula Package:
RECOMMENDED OPTION: Attending the Prep 4 Birth class. With this option, you secure a dedicated doula, as well as a thorough childbirth class. The price of the class will then be credited to your total cost for services. The Prep 4 Birth series (totaling more than 9hrs of fun, interactive activities and group instruction) is well worth the time and investment! There are other wonderful childbirth education options in our area, I am happy to give you that information. Your preparation and understanding of birth enables me to serve you best!
