Compassionate Birth Doula Care for Austin Families
My Birth Mission
More than anything I want to empower my clients to have the birth experience they desire. My mission is not my own, it is yours. This is the birth of your baby and I support you in a loving and nonjudgmental way. Working together, we can negotiate the twists and turns on your path to parenthood. No one can know exactly what will happen during the birth of their baby, but you don’t have to go it alone -- I am here to help. I promise to give you the tools to advocate for the birth choices that you decide are right for your family. By holding space for you all, I will walk with you on your journey and open my heart to provide you the best care I can.
It's crazy to think that at one time I had debated whether we needed a Doula in addition to the Bradley training we were planning to take, because now I can't imagine Brenda not being a part of our birth story. -Doka, mama to Clark
Birth Doula Package
Two Prenatal Visits - These visits focus on discussing birth preferences, fears and concerns and history. I will answer questions and advise the client of options available for labor and birth.
One Care Provider Visit - I will accompany clients to one visit with their care provider.
On-going Virtual Support - I am available for email and telephone consultation. I guide you as questions come up your pregnancy and birth and provide you with referrals to other professionals as needed.
Continuous Labor Support - When the time is right, I join you to support you throughout the labor, birth and immediate postpartum period.
Two Postpartum Visits - One visit will be during the first week after the birth to assist with breastfeeding and postpartum adjustment. One visit will be four to six weeks postpartum to process the birth experience.
