Providing Exceptional Care
Empowering Families Birthing and Postpartum Experience
We recognize that the pregnancy, birth and postpartum period can be overwhelming, and we are committed to making the experience as positive and empowering as possible. By providing support and guidance during pregnancy, birth and the first stages of parenthood, we help mothers and families in welcoming their new babies into the world.
Services We Offer
By providing Birth Doulas, we give you the undivided, unbiased and professional support needed to ensure your journey is as safe and positive as possible. Your Doula will be available to contact anytime, and is committed to whatever you feel would benefit you, your baby, and your family most. Included in our birth services are two prenatal check ins, full support/advocacy during labor, help with feeding baby and one home postpartum visit. As our birth doula client you will have full access to our educational classes and our lending library.
Postpartum Doulas are crucial to every mom when they first come home from the hospital. We understand that life and family obligations doesn't discontinue after you leave the hospital so we would like to make this transition as easy as possible. Our postpartum doula has experience caring and educating mom's after delivery and helping them learn to adjust to a new normal while caring for themselves and their new baby. We are able to care for you and baby as well as helping with feedings, cooking, running errands and doing light housekeeping. We can also accompany you to doctor's visit and other outings. Our postpartum doula services are available in 4 hour increments and we also offer a variety of packages including our other services.
We offer the option of a Virtual Doula for families who have a distance barrier or may have a preference to having virtual services and wanting to keep this special time sacred for them only. Our Virtual Doula will provide all the care that our Birth and Postpartum Doula has to offer but contacts will be made via telephone, video chat or other avenues that parents are familiar with. This service will include prenatal check ins, help with creating a birth plan, education and support throughout pregnancy and postpartum along with full support and advocacy during labor. Our Virtual Doula will follow you for up to six weeks postpartum and this includes a special postpartum package delivered to your home. If driving distance allows, we will do a home visit after delivery.
Holistic Fertility Doula
Studies show that about 1 in 8 women have trouble conceiving and that is truly heartbreaking. Our Holistic Fertility Doula is certified in assisting families with non interventive ways in preparing their body for pregnancy. We will work along side your health care team as needed and make suggestions to help you get to your goal. This will include working with both mom and dad to create an optimum condition for conception.
Maternity, Birth, Newborn and Family Photography
We have amazing photographers who would love to capture the most important memories you will ever have. We have packages that include pregnancy, birth, newborn and family sessions. Photo sessions can be done in birthing facilities as well as in home or at location of your choice.
Nutrition is an important factor whether you are trying to conceive, already pregnant or just want to remain healthy. Our Health Coach specializes in nutrition and would love to help you meet your personal and health goals. Our staff can also help with meal plans while navigating around any health issues you may have during your consultations.
We want everyone to receive the same care and we understand that sometimes a language barrier can get in the way of a mother receiving optimum care. We have a few staff members who are fully Spanish speaking with a health care background and can interpret during your visits with Birthing Boldly or other health care appointments. Please feel free to ask us more about this service if it's needed outside of Birthing Boldly appointments.
With the influx of hormones during pregnancy and the sudden decrease after delivery it can have any woman feeling overwhelmed and experience a change in their mood. On top of normal life stresses this can be too much for some women. So we aim to make the transition as seamless as possible by offering therapy visits to families. We have board certified therapists who are open to working with women and families for therapy sessions. They have experience working with women through depression during pregnancy as well as postpartum depression, mood/anxiety disorders and more severe cases they may arise outside of childbearing.
We have a IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) available to help breastfeeding mothers. Lactation consultations can be done in the hospital, in your home or telehealth. Lactation visits include weight checks for your infant if desired or needed and an additional week of support during care plan implementation. We work through all issues involving breastfeeding such as tongue tie, high palate, latching, insufficient growth, relactation and breast/nipple pain. We have experience and qualified to help with minor and complicated issues including breastfeeding multiples.
