I will not attend a planned unassisted birth.
My fees include 2 visits before the birth to go over comfort measures and any concerns. This also allows me to get to know you better and how to best serve you. I'm also available 24/7 for any questions or concerns. I will be on call from 37 weeks until delivery. I will then compete 1 postpartum visit. I also will help with creating your birth plan.

Leiann has attended births with me as a co-doula and as a backup doula. She is a wonderful doula and I fully recommend her. I've been attending births for over 18 yrs and think Leiann has that special non judgmental quality as well as a soothing personality that makes her a special doula. She will work to make your birth experience what you want. She has experience at hospitals, home births, and birth centers. She also has been encapsulating placents for quite a few years and has a lot of experience. If you're looking for a skilled and reliable doula, I recommend Leiann.
Leiann was my rock during my extremely fast homebirth. We were speaking via text when I told her I still thought I had plenty of time and my baby would be born later in the evening. She must have read the panic in my messages because she asked me two or three times if she should come to my house right then. I finally agreed and when she arrived I immediately calmed down. My midwife arrived shortly afterward and they both assured me it was normal for my contractions to slow down now that they were there and I was relaxed. Not two and a half hours later was I holding my baby.
She supported my body when I needed to sway and she brought me a cloth when I felt faint. When I got into the birth pool she massaged my back when I needed it and stopped when I didn't want to be touched. She reminded me to relax my face which helped open my body. Without her help I never would have made it through my birth. There is no way I would ever birth without her by my side again. I didn't realize how much I actually needed a doula until I was in the moment and she anticipated my needs even when I was too engrossed with labor to be able to voice them.
