Our matchmaker will answer all your questions and provide tailored matchmaking so you and your partner can narrow down the options and interview with doulas who are likely to be a good match.
Most people interview two or three of our doulas to discuss get a feel for each doula, discuss their services and style, and determine which connection feels like the best fit for your family.
A trusting relationship is the foundation of doula care. Prenatal visits are offered in-person and/or virtually and provide opportunities to discuss your hopes and goals and create a real connection.
Your doula is available via text, email, phone, and video as needed throughout your pregnancy and postpartum. It’s reassuring to know that when you reach out, your doula will be there for you.
Birth First clients get free and discounted access to our birth and newborn classes so that you and your partner can prepare for your childbirth journey and feel more confident!
Being on-call means that once you reach 37 weeks, your doula has her cell phone on at all times and she’ll answer her phone 24/7. It’s so reassuring to know that your doula is just a text or call away.
Our team of doulas provides a wide net of backup in the unlikely event that your doula happens to be ill when you go into labor. You and your partner are sure to have all the support you need!
If you want to labor in the comfort of your own home and avoid going to the hospital too soon, your doula’s presence can be especially reassuring and helpful in determining when to go in.
During labor, your doula provides hands-on comfort and progression techniques, mental and emotional encouragement, advocacy in the medical setting, breaks for your partner, and much more!
Your doula can help capture memorable moments of the day your baby was born by taking photos or videos to ensure your family has priceless images that can be cherished for a lifetime.
After the birth, your doula stays with you for 1-3 hours to assist with breastfeeding and recovery, encourage family bonding, and remind pediatric staff of your newborn choices.
Once you are home, your doula will provide postpartum visits (in-home or virtual) to process the birth, answer newborn questions, review your recovery, and discuss anything else on your mind and heart.
Your doula is available for six weeks after delivery for informational support by phone, email, or text to help answer any questions and provide excellent local resources that can help your family to thrive!
These non-judgemental groups are offered to pregnant people and new parents twice a week and are facilitated by birth doulas, postpartum doulas, and lactation consultants.
Birth First clients receive discounts on services offered by some of the best and most respected prenatal and postpartum practitioners in town, including postpartum doulas, massage, and much more!
“Continuous support from doulas during childbirth may be associated with:
• a decreased use of pain relief medication during labor
• a decreased incidence of C-sections
• a decrease in the length of labor
• a decrease in negative childbirth experiences.”
– Dr. Yvonne Butler Tobah, Mayo Clinic
