Birth Doula Services

At Pacific Doula Services, we provide Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula Services. You may request services of just one or a combination of both. On this page, we will introduce you to our Birth Doula Services.

Our Birth Doula Services include..

"Prenatal Meetings" - 1-3 visits, depending on your needs and when we meet before the birth. Due to the nature of births, it may not be possible to meet during your prenatal period. In any case, your doula will do best to support you during your labor. You are also able to contact your doula by phone.
"Labor Support" - Your doula will be on-call 24 hours for you birth. Labor support begins when you call her and notify her of your progress. We will stay in touch by phone and your doula will join you when appropriate usually at your home or another agreed upon meeting place, such as the hospital. She will stay and support you all the way until your baby is born and everything is settled.
"Immediate Postpartum Support" –Your doula will stay with you for about 1-3hrs after birth until everything is settled, including breastfeeding support.
"Postpartum Support" -1 postpartum visit during the first week at your home, including breastfeeding support and newborn care. Up to 2 more postpartum visits depending on your needs.

Your doula will be ‘on call’ 24/7 from two weeks before your estimated due date until the birth day.

As a Birth Doula, your doula will provide physical, emotional, informational, and spiritual support throughout your labor and birth experience.

Depending on your needs, your doula will do her best to:

  • Support you emotionally, physically, and spiritually throughout your experience.
  • Provide information such as labor pain coping, optimal fetal positioning, and baby care prenatally and beyond. Being well-informed empowers you and allows you to make informed decisions. Your doula will support the decision once it is made and will not make the decision for you.
  • Join you at the early stage of labor (unless impossible due to the nature of the birth or not being notified) so you will be supported and stay in the comfortable environment of your home before transporting to your birth place where your care provider will meet you.
  • Create a positive and safe environment where you and your partner are supported.
  • Support partners through labor so they can be a part of it as much as they wish and hope to be. A doula does not replace or take over the partner’s place but enhances and supports it.
  • A doula is a part of team, including you, your partner, and care providers. A doula does not replace or take over anybody else's role. She is solely a support person and does not provide health care such as vaginal exams.
  • Provide breastfeeding information and support.
  • Provide referrals for further support and expert knowledge.
  • Support the mother and partner during immediate recovery from birth physically and emotionally.
  • Provide support and information for other family members, such as grandparents as well.
