A labor/birth doula is a non-medical support person with training and experience in childbirth. As your doulas, our job is to assist you in clarifying your birth choices; provide informational resources on any questions you may have; support you & your partner (if applicable) physically and emotionally with non-judgmental compassion from pregnancy through immediate postpartum.
At Summer Birth Services, our team model gives you access to two doulas for your pregnancy, labor, and birth. These doulas will meet with you prenatally to discuss your unique wishes and how they can best support you during your baby’s birth. They’ll work together to provide comprehensive and cohesive support for your family. When your birthing time arrives, you’ll have a calendar with which doula to call, and since you’ll know them both, there will be no surprises! We have designed two different packages to suit your needs, from basic to deluxe. If you desire something different, contact us about making a custom package.
