Mama T's Birth Cover!
Being that not everyone is the same we all have different values, beliefs and financial abilities I thought it was important to offer a few variations in my packaging for you , I like to think of it as levels of preparation & love.
Mama T's All In!
Personalised Payment Plans Available Upon Request
Upon enquiry I will schedule an obligation free phone consult to have a brief discussion on your needs and expectations of a Birth Doula if you are happy to proceed we will follow this up with an obligation free meeting. ( Please allow approximately 30mins for this phone consultation. )
An obligation free face to face intro meeting to briefly get to know each other and for you to ask questions on how I can provide support for yourself and your birthing partner. Allow 1hr.
Once booking is confirmed and payment arrangements are met we will meet again twice before your birthing month. The first meeting will take place at 36wks, you will need to allow approximately 2 plus hours for this visit, not only is it a fantastic way of getting to know each other better it's also a fabulous Ice Breaker for birthing partners who are unsure of my presence on your special day. This is also the meeting we will put pen to paper regarding your birthing plan/wishes, go over birthing positions and or pain management choices, any concerns or fears you may have and also a fantastic opportunity for some light birth education if needed.
At 38wks we will meet again just us to go over anything and everything you can think of leading up to your birth. This meeting is usually attended only by the mama giving her the opportunity to discuss openly whatever is on her mind and to further bond with me as your Birthing Doula. Please allow 2 plus hours.
During these meetings we will cover everything from hospital policy/guidelines to postnatal care options and everything in between ensuring all involved are on the same page in readiness for the big day.
From 38wks I will be ON-CALL via text, phone or email to support you 24/7 and until baby arrives. PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME EARLIER ( PRIOR TO 38wks ) IF YOU RUPTURE YOUR MEMBRANES OR ARE ACTIVELY LABOURING.
For the birth I will "Hold The Space" for you and your partner allowing you to concentrate on each other, during this time I will help gently guide you through your birthing experience. I will stay with you throughout the entirety of your labour and until baby is birthed only leaving when you feel comfortable for me to do so.
I will check in on you within 24hrs of your birth whether this be at home or at the hospital, this is a brief visit allowing you to ask questions or voice any concerns and to celebrate any triumphs you feel you need/wish to. We will also briefly go over anything from nappies to breastfeeding (if you feel up to it). I like to come to this visit bearing gifts a little something from me to you to help you get started on the fourth trimester.
Two weeks post birth we will have arranged a visit at your convenience ( approximately 1-2hrs ) to fully debrief your birth and discuss anything requiring attention. It's super important that in the first 2wks you are able to concentrate purely on yourself and your baby, this bonding period is the best time for new mama's to adjust to all the changes that occur postpartum and if breastfeeding allows mama to keep visitors to a minimum so to interrupt baby and breast time as little as possible. Affectionately called postpartum hibernation.
This package also has a 6wk visit often mama's enjoy this visit at a café or a park giving them a perfect reason to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air. This visit is simply a catch up and can be as long or short as you wish, I also don't mind a good hug with you & bub ( only if you don't mind too much ) as this will be the end of our journey together.
