Labor Doula

New parentsBabies are born every day, but you don’t give birth every day. Our labor doulas understand the significance of this time for you and your family, and know that this particular birth will only happen to you once. We are here to give you the support you desire for this once in a lifetime experience.

Foothills Family Doulas is able to provide the most comprehensive doula care around, thanks to the beauty of our partner model. From the moment your contract is signed, a doula is always on call for you. This is only the beginning of the luxury care that you deserve.

As part of our labor package, both of your skilled and intuitive doulas will meet with you for two prenatal visits. Consider this your birth brainstorm. We will learn the ins and outs of your wishes: your ideal birth. We will cover frequently asked questions, provide examples of different labor supportive techniques and positions, and even remind you of what to bring along to the hospital.

We love to hear from you. Whenever you have questions, give us a call or shoot us a text. We pride ourselves on our quick response time, as we know that you deserve immediate attention. Whether it’s a picture of the new things happening to your body, or a sudden moment of needed affirmation, we welcome your contact. We are here to provide you with information about what is normal and outside of the scope of normal. Once your labor begins, one of your doulas will be at your beck and call. We will be available for phone and text support through early labor. And as your physical and emotional needs begin to increase, you will call us to come meet you where you are: whether at home, hospital, or birth center. From this moment on, you will receive the best mental, physical and emotional support available.
We are here to mother you, the mother. Your doula will give you the individual attention that you crave, and will provide unbiased, non-judgmental support.

Your birth partner will love us, too! Your doula will support your partner’s effort to support you. We will work together as a team to provide comfort and affirmation. Your doula will guide your partner through all of the tricks of labor—showing just where to apply pressure and just how to care for you best—bringing the powerful love and comfort that only your partner can give you. Once your precious bundle arrives, your doula will help facilitate the beautiful bond that occurs after birth. Whether you would like breastfeeding support, or just someone to text all of the relatives, your doula is here to make sure you enjoy those delicious golden moments after your new baby has arrived.

Within the next 2 weeks, both doulas will come together to your home for a postpartum visit. We will discuss your birthing experience, answer any questions that you may have, and even run a load of laundry if you’d like!

Just because your baby is born does not mean your support must end. Check out our postpartum doula packages!
