VIRTUAL DOULA SUPPORT
The Virtual Doula Package is for parents looking for an experienced Doula but may not need in person support. I will be there to guide you, support, nurture, inform and answer any questions you may have. Virtual support is perfect for having all the benefits of a Birth & Postpartum Doula without needing in-person support.
As a Virtual Doula, I will provide education, comfort techniques, affirmations, and reassuring support throughout your pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. You will be supported in a similar way as a traditional in-person doula, except services will be conducted virtually.
As a Virtual Doula I will likely meet for your prenatal consultations via video chat, and will still be available to answer any questions via phone, text, or email. For your birth, I will likely use a video meeting platform and provide you with comfort measures and labouring techniques that you previously rehearsed and discussed.
You will get me - a Birth & Ayurvedic Postpartum doula, Yoga Instructor, Thai Massage Therapist, Bengkung Belly Binding Practitioner, and Herbalist student - at your service for the duration of our contract. You can be anywhere in the world and have my attention and support, so long as you have an internet connection.
