This package is created for those that simply want labor and birth support. Prenatal and postpartum one-on-one time is not included and this means that education is limited and the overall quality of care is not as comprehensive or personable. Please make sure you are getting comprehensive childbirth education and you have a good support plan in place for the postpartum period if you choose this package.

This package is available for those that decide to wait until the end of third trimester to hire a doula or for those that are in labor and decide they need doula support after all. This service is subject to availability and the services provided can vary slightly depending on each situation (i.e. There may not be enough time to meet prenatally, but postpartum support is more extensive).
