Emotional, Physical and Educational Support... but what does that really mean?
When you contract with me you get 24/7 care from the time you sign until after baby is born. Yep, that means every time you want to Google or Pinterest a question or a concern you have, you can call or text me instead! I'm your personal Pregnancy and Birth Encyclopedia! No more endless skimming to find what you're looking for.
We will have one or two pre-natal visits giving me a chance to learn about who you are as a person, who your birthing team will be and how I will support you best. Here we will go over your hopes and goals for your birth, your style of communication, how you truly are under stress or when you're in pain and so much more. These pre-natal visits are really an invaluable time that help prepare you for your upcoming labor and delivery!
This goes beyond just your educational needs though and applies emotionally, too. I'm there for you every step of the way. As contractions are starting and you're feeling all of the feels, I'm there to comfort you in a way that's most meaningful to you. When you're pushing and you feel like you have nothing left, I'm reminding you that you can do this.
My support is physical as needed, as well. Sometimes you need a professional hip-squeeze or a sheet-wrap to relieve pelvic pressure during labor! You need someone who knows your hopes and dreams for your birth and will do everything they can to support them.
