What Can Womb of Creation Doulas Do For You?
Al la Carte Prep Sessions
Are you interested in support solely in making a birth plan? Are you second-time parents looking for a refresher? No worries! Womb of Creation offers this one time birth prep consultation in your home to help lay the groundwork for your upcoming birth. This isn’t a typical birth plan. Instead we’ll cover what to expect from your particular hospital, what to pack in your hospital bags, when you should go to the hospital, what the birth day (or night) will look like, and what to expect chronologically during labor and birth. We’ll also go over induction methods, non-medicated and pain management options, vaginal birth, cesarean birth, and ways your partner can offer support during the different stages of labor.

Fourth Trimester Prep
You’ve had a baby! Now what?! Our experience as moms and doulas has taught us preparing for the Fourth Trimester is essential for physical recovery and emotional health. Planning on caring for a baby you haven’t met yet can overpower your thoughts. Have no fear…we’re here to give you a simple and tangible approach to life with a new baby!
Womb of Creation offers this one-time Welcome to 4th Trimester Planning Consultation, similar to the Birth Prep Consultation. This option gives you an insider’s point of view- from what to expect during the moments right after delivery, to the days, weeks and months that follow. This prep session takes place before birth, and in the comfort of your own home.
This session will explore what what you can expect immediately after giving birth, recovery, and postpartum. We’ll walk through recovery from vaginal and cesarean birth and offer simple ways to prep your home ahead of time to make the transition easier on everyone. We also touch on perinatal mood disorders- what’s typical and when/how to seek help- and what your partner can anticipate during every postpartum stage. After this informative session, you’ll feel confident and prepared to bring home your baby.

Partner Support Prep
The number one thing I hear from clients is that they want to feel close to their partners in labor. A person giving birth wants to feel confident, empowered, heard, and cared for. Especially by their partners. That connection starts during pregnancy. During this session, you will learn some tips, techniques and actionable skills to help you take care of your partner and yourself during labor and birth. *Includes access to SupportingHer online class.
