The Doula Package:
The following services are included in my doula package:
Meetings before birth:
We meet at your home and talk about physiological birth and your expectations on labour. How do you wish to give birth? Are there any fears? What are the Swedish hospital routines? We talk about pain management and relaxation tools and together we try out some of the things me and/or the partner might use as comfort measures during labour and pregnancy. We meet around two-three times, a bit depending on your needs and wishes.
We meet once more in your home for a relaxing massage session, with the purpose of boosting oxytocin as well as relieving pain and/or discomfort in late pregnancy.
On call service and back up doula:
I am on call 10 days before the due date until the baby is born (unless otherwise agreed). This means that I am prepared to cancel all my other activities, day and night, in order to attend the birth. I cooperate with other doulas, there is always a second doula engaged for each couple. The back up doula usually attends one of the meetings.
I usually offer one extra meeting sometime during week 41 (or a bit earlier) if an induction is planned within the next days. I then offer labour inducing acupressure, relaxation with the purpose of getting the oxytocin flowing and exercises for optimizing the baby's position. We talk about the upcoming induction, and you have an opportunity to ask any extra questions and we can catch up a bit.
Support during labour:
Presence and support from the point of you needing me (we meet up at home or at the hospital), until the baby is born.
The meeting postpartum is a time for reflection and remembering. It is also a time for tying everything together and saying goodbye. When needed, I also give advice on and help with breastfeeding and life with small babies.
Price: 13 000 SEK including VAT. I accept individual payment solutions.
Before you book, we meet for an introductory chat free of charge. We talk about birthing with the support of a doula and you get an impression of me and my work. Thereafter you may take your time to decide whether you want to continue or not.
