Birth + Postpartum Plans

Congratulations! Let's work together for your birth and postpartum needs!

Gabrielle's doula services are designed to have both your birth and postpartum needs in mind. Prenatal sessions will provide opportunities to explore how your birth decisions can influence your postpartum needs, and how your postpartum decisions can influence your birth vision. As your doula, my goal is to help you and your birth partner reduce stress and provide the birth and postpartum support you desire.

 

COVID-19 Resources

As a doula, I know how valuable 

timely, accurate, and

evidence-based information is for families to have as they expect the arrival of their new little one(s)!

For comprehensive information specifically prepared for birthing families about COVID-19 and your birth options,

please visit the

Evidence Based Birth (EBB) website

as a supportive resource:

You will have access to a:

Free Birth Class via YouTube

Sample Informed Consent Form for Refusal to Separate Birthing Parent from Infant

And much more!

Virtual Support

During this season, I am happy to offer

virtual doula support via video conference options. Support includes at least four prenatal and two postpartum sessions.

In our sessions, we will:

  • Define your Birth Vision 

  • Complete a Birth and Postpartum Plan

  • Prepare you for the stages of labor and how to work with your labor process

  • Determine your specific needs concerning transfer to your chosen birth in light of new COVID-19 procedures

  • Practice Comfort Measures (yes! online!) to ensure you have helpful comfort techniques during labor

We can also discuss your needs and interest for in-person doula support prior to hospital transfer.

Total: 500.00

*Cost a concern? Scholarships are available.

Financial Considerations

There are Options to Afford Doula Care! 

Gabrielle is dedicated to trying to support women and families in meaningful ways, and is happy to discuss your financial considerations and questions. Gabrielle can work with clients to establish payment plans and can talk with you about your specific needs.

 

Scholarship For Expecting Black Families

 

Gabrielle offers a gift-in-kind scholarship opportunity to African American mothers and families to encourage accessibility to doula support and care. As our nation continues to recognize racially disparate health outcomes for black maternal and infant care, Gabrielle wants to see black women and their family feel empowered in the birth space and encouraged that their Vision, Values, Village, and Voice matter.
