Sacred Holistic Birth Doula Package

Investment: $1700 ($2000 with Private, In-Home Childbirth Class)

In our modern, medical birth culture, we often treat birth as if it is a procedure that we require medical professionals to perform. In reality, birth is a normal biological event that the woman’s body goes through – you and your body know how to give birth to your baby! With holistic support, we will work together to keep you healthy, nourished, and confident so that you can give birth to your baby naturally and in health, using the wisdom of a more traditional approach to holistic birth care.

A Holistic Birth approach:

  • blends a more traditional approach to caring for your mind, body and emotions with whatever your approach to medical care and options may be.

  • Views birth as a natural biological process that typically unfolds best when undisturbed, and focuses on keeping you healthy in order to support that process

  • Uses nutrition and herbs to keep your body nourished and healthy

  • Incorporates referrals to other holistic health modalities as appropriate to create health in your body and mind

Your Holistic Birth support will include:

  • All services in the Sacred Birth Doula Package

  • Free, optional registration in an Empowered Birth and Beyond Childbirth Course

  • Monthly prenatal visits from the beginning of your pregnancy to prepare your body, mind, and partner (if applicable) for the healthiest, most natural birth possible

  • Unlimited phone and email support throughout your pregnancy and postpartum period

  • Assistance choosing appropriate medical care / attendants for your pregnancy and birth goals (if desired)

  • Nourishing tea for pregnancy included in the fee

  • Nutritional guidance for a healthy pregnancy

  • Continuous, on call support for your birth

  • Educational books for preparing for birth and life with a new baby

  • Extended breastfeeding support postpartum based on your needs

  • Referrals to holistic health practitioners specialized in the perinatal year (Holistic Nutritionist, Naturopathic Doctor, Lactation Consultant, Acupuncturists, Chiropractor, Massage Therapist as appropriate)

  • Option to add-on a private, at-home childbirth course for you and your partner (additional $300)

  • Two private, 1-hr prenatal or postnatal yoga sessions
