Doula/Student Midwife

Offered by: MistressGrace93

Located in: Livingston, Montana



Skill/Service Details: Through holistic methods and education, I strive to help achieve balance and peace for each mama through the entire birthing process. I believe Birth is a sacred and blessed rite that each woman deserves to fully experience however and wherever she choose. I am committed to providing the education and support necessary to make your birth the most fulfilling experience possible!

Birth Services

As your doula, I strive to be available as often as possible prior to your labor/birth. During your labor and birth, I will be with you without any interruption. I will remain with you for a short time after the birth of your baby to help adjust and initiate breastfeeding. After I depart, you are free to call at any time if you have any questions or concerns or just need to talk. I will come to your home around 3 days postpartum for a follow-up meeting to discuss your labor and birth, how everyone is adjusting and any other concerns you or your partner may have.

Also Included:

· Minimum of 2 prenatal visits (more if needed)
· Attend a prenatal appointment with your midwife or doctor (if desired)
· Unlimited phone/email support
· Provide you with factual information regarding your labor/birth choices
· Support and advocation for the decisions you and your partner make
· Suggest positions and comfort methods to help the progress of labor
· Provide physical and emotional support and encouragement to you and partner
· Help you follow as closely as possible your birth plan
· Assist you with initial breastfeeding (if desired)
· Visit you at your home 3 days postpartum
· Continue to provide unlimited phone/email correspondence
· Visit you in your home 7 days postpartum (if desired)
· Personalized prenatal yoga plan to keep you fit during pregnancy

Upon determining your labor has started, I will decide with you when and where you would like me to meet you. If delivering in a hospital, I will be there the entire time through your labor/birth. If delivering at home, I will be there when you are ready for me to be. I will help you decide when would be a good time for my arrival. If medical intervention is presented, I will assist you in obtaining the correct information needed so you and your partner can make an informed decision on how to proceed.

Postpartum Services

As a postpartum doula, I come to family's home after the birth of your baby to help facilitate the adjustment period. I offer to do various household tasks and offer support to the whole family with primary focus on the new mother. I am there to encourage and educate the family on taking care of a newborn, assistance with breastfeeding (if desired) and the overall help with transitioning into a new family unit. Here are ways that I offer support:

· Assistance with breastfeeding
· Assistance with infant care including bathing and changing the baby
· Assistance with umbilical cord care
· Laundry
· Meal preparation
· Light housework
· Running errands
· Attending Dr. Appointments and Outings
· Fielding visitors
· Assistance with older siblings
· Assistance with co-sleeping
· Assistance with baby wearing
· Listening with an experienced and compassionate ear

Yoga Services

As part of my birth services, I include a customized yoga plan for you to incorporate into your daily routine if desired. I am also available for additional private session for $35 per hour to aid your yoga practice while pregnant or to help get back in shape postpartum.

Rates: Pregnancy/Birth, Sometimes you might think that a doula's fee is over priced, and their services over-rated, but this is untrue. Please keep in mind, that some mothers labors are very long . I not only keep in touch with you through out your pregnancy, but I am on call for you 2 weeks before and after your due date. I am serving you with the best possible care since I am available to you 24/7. I am there to ensure that you are protected, served, loved and able to have the best birth you can possibly have so you and your baby can have a good start. For me, birth is not a job, or a paycheck- it's my calling!, My services start at $500 per birth. The first half is due at the time of signing the service agreement. The second half is due at the first postpartum visit., Please do not let my fees deter you from contacting me! Payment plans are always an option, as is a sliding scale fee based on your individual circumstances. , Postpartum, Having extra support at home during the first couple of months after welcoming your little one into the world is priceless!!! This time is just as life changing as the birth of your child and is often referred to as the 4th Trimester of pregnancy. Whether the extra support is needed to ensure adequate sleep, help with recover from a caesarean birth, assist with older siblings or just for reassurance with your first baby, a postpartum doula is there do do exactly what YOU need., When researching postpartum doulas you will find various fees as well as services provided. I tailor my services to each individual family and discuss this at the review and signing of the service agreement. My hourly rate varies from $15-$25/hour depending on individual needs.
