BIRTH SUPPORT 

 

Congratulations! You are on the journey of a lifetime. 

You've been waiting for this day for a long time; imagining your pregnant body and picturing what it will be like to meet your baby for the first time. You have spent months planning for their entrance into this world, anticipating what labor might be like, knowing the support of a doula will make all the difference for you and your partner. You know that you want assurance of a resourceful, calm, and continuous support that will walk with you through the unfolding of your birth experience. 

 

When you hire In Bloom, you are paired with two trained and experienced doulas. 

Our team approach to birth support means that you have the assured availability of your doula from the moment you hire us until your baby arrives. Each of your doulas will meet with you prenatally to help you and your partner prepare and plan for your birth. The support doesn't end here; we will each be available for two postpartum follow-up visits, and 6 weeks of continued availability to answer any questions that may come up following your birth. 

 

The doula on-call will join you in labor at the moment you choose, ready to use her head, hands, and heart.

The doula on-call is fully present for you through your birth,  providing you with comfort measures, guidance, pain management options, and the ability to bring calm to this challenging moment that has finally arrived. Your doula listens, watches, and attunes to the needs of you and your partner. She doesn't replace your partner, but rather compliments and strengthens his ability to support you. When he needs to care for himself during labor, he can rest assured that you will be cared for with unequivocal support. 

 

It's our passion to meet families exactly where they are, helping them achieve the birth that they desire.

We know that every woman has unique desires and plans for her birth. We believe in the value of continuous and unbiased doula support, and know the most important thing we can leave you with is the lasting memory of how you were made to feel in your birth;  heard, valued, nurtured, and supported. 

 

 

I truly cannot recommend (Jody and Andrea) enough. From the educational planning prenatal visits,to the care they each spent getting to know us, we really appreciated being comfortable with both of them before the birth of our little guy. Andrea was on call during the day of, and to say she went above and beyond is an understatement. She was with us for a very long period and was amazing support throughout. My husband and I are very grateful and feel the experience would have been very different if she were not present. Jody has been doing our post partum care ( help with sleeping, breastfeeding etc) and she has also been amazing!! She has a way with our little one, is very open and knowledgable, and is also an excellent cook!
