THE DOULA PACKAGE:
The following services are included in my doula package:
Meetings before birth:
We meet at your home and talk about your wishes and thoughts. We talk about physiological birth and expectations on labour. How do you wish to give birth? Are there any fears? I explain the Confident Birth tools, and together we try some of the things me and/or the partner might use as comfort measures during labour and pregnancy. Normally, we meet at least twice.
We meet once more in your home for a relaxing massage session, with the purpose of boosting the oxytocin as well as relieving any pain and/or discomfort in late pregnancy.
On call service and back up doula:
Normally, I am on call from ten 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, one other doula is always back up for each client. The back up doula usually attend one of the meetings. The parents can feel confident of receiving good support during birth, in all cases.
Week 41+ meeting:
I usually offer one extra meeting sometime during week 41+, or if an induction is planned within the next days for some other reason (for instance if the membranes rupture without contractions). I then offer labour inducing acupressure, relaxation with the purpose of getting the oxytocin flowing and exercises for optimizing the baby's position.
Support during labour:
Presence and support from the point of you needing me (we meet up either at home or at the hospital), until the baby is born.
Together we go through the memories of birth. 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, baby carrying and life with small babies.
Price: 10 000 SEK including VAT. I accept individual payment solutions.
Before you book, we meet for an introductory chat without any costs, in order for us to get to know each other a little. 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...
