Let's get together and chat. This is our interview. Ask me questions, share your concerns, tell me a little about you. Let's get to know each other.
Once we sign a contract, I am available to you via text, phone, or email. If you have questions about any aspect of your pregnancy, I'm happy to share what I know.
2 Prenatal Visits
At the first visit, we will talk about your hopes and thoughts regarding your upcoming birth. We will make plans for you to have the best birth possible.
At the second visit, we will walk through some relaxation exercises and comfort measures. We will review your birth plan and make sure you are ready for baby time.
Give me a call when things start and we will decide when it's time for me to join you. I will get to you as quick as I can and will stay with you throughout your labor and for up to two hours after birth.
Postpartum Follow-Up Visit
What a blessing! Baby is here. We will have a visit to chat over your birth and celebrate your new little one.
I want you to feel supported throughout your pregnancy and beyond. If you are looking for other services in your community, I will be happy to help you find someone you can trust.
For the Joy Photography
As a Doula, I Do Not:
Perform any clinical tasks
I am not licensed to give any medical assistance or diagnose any condition. I will not perform any medical assessments or procedures.
Make decisions for you
I will help you get information to make informed decisions and remind you if you are departing from your plan, but my job is to empower you to make decisions for yourself and then support you in those decisions.
Speak to the staff on your behalf
I will discuss your concerns with you and offer suggestions and I will make sure you have the opportunity to voice any concerns, but you and your partner will speak for yourselves and make your own decisions.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
I have had many of my own birth experiences and each was different from the others. I want you to own your birth experience and I will be privileged to humbly accompany you through it.
