Doula Support

A doula is a non-medical support person who provides continuous one-on-one care during labor, birth, and postpartum. Doula support is very individualized. 

Doula's can help with prepping and planning for labor, birth, and postpartum so that you feel informed, prepared, safe, and in charge of your birth/postpartum choices - to help you have an empowering and satisfying experience.

Birth doula's provide emotional and physical support throughout labor and birth while supporting your preferences. Doula's are risk-free and highly effective in improving birth outcomes (read evidence here).

Postpartum doula's provide judgement-free support & companionship along with physical, emotional, and informational support to parents so that they feel informed, safe, empowered, and in charge of their choices during their transitional postpartum journey.

All doula support services include a Meet & Greet and access to our resources and recommendations.

Doula support should be attainable for all. Our services can be altered to fit your specific needs. 

We follow CDC and Washoe County guidelines for Covid-19.

*Although we can't accept insurance, we can offer payment plans and sliding scales -- just ask!

meet & Greet

  • We'll grab some coffee/tea and chat about you, your pregnancy, and your ideal birth! In-person or virtually.

  • If you are looking to book doula support - we must do a meet & greet first. Doula support is a very up-close and personal gig, and not every doula is right for every person.

  • Our top priority is to set you up with the best care, and in order to do that we need to test our connection first and foremost.

  • After getting to know each other a bit, we will discuss your needs from a doula and decide if we fit well. If we do, we can talk about booking your doula support.

  • We are beyond honored that you are even considering one of us on your birth team, we cannot wait to meet you.
    Investment: $0 + 1 hour
