VIRTUAL DOULA SERVICES | WASHINGTON DC DOULA

Doulas are known for their hands-on support, however doulas are perhaps even more essential during times of stress such as the covid-19 pandemic. Do not deny yourself the support because of hospital restrictions! You deserve compassionate, dedicated coaching from a doula, even if it is through virtual doula services. Virtual doula services include:

  • Personalized prenatal meetings to help you prepare for your upcoming birth, lessen anxiety and get your questions answered
  • Help creating birthing preferences to share with your care team
  • Phone and text support throughout your last days (and hours) of pregnancy to help you recognize your birthing signs and offer strategies for comfort and progress
  • Continuous support once you are in your hospital or birthing center via video chat, speaker phone, etc.
  • Support during your postpartum time as you adjust and get to know your newborn
