Support through Pregnancy, Birth, & Postpartum

In Person Birth Doula Services

 

​Doulas have always attended births to be in close physical and emotional support of a woman in labor. Due to the health crisis, however, regulations are temporarily in place to disallow anyone but your partner from attending a birth.

 

This means that Doulas are not being allowed to enter most hospitals. For these women, we are providing Virtual Doula Services, detailed below.

Doulas are still able to attend Homebirths, however. If you would like a Doula to attend your birth in person, with a mix of in person and phone support, reserve this service. Your Doula will use a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.

Virtual doula support is an adapted form of in-person pregnancy, birth, or postpartum support.

 

To fit to these unique times, remote support focuses even more on the family. This service is just as much for the seasoned parent as it is for a family that is welcoming their first child home.

 

We provide emotional and educational support through mediums such as Zoom, email, text, and phone calls. We serve families outside of Baltimore and Maryland, and have helped families across the country with the support they need through virtual doula services and groups.
