Birth doulas create a positive and empowering birthing experience by offering evidence-based information, emotional support, and physical support to you and your support person before, during, and after childbirth.
We meet with you twice during pregnancy to discover your goals and desires, help you develop birth preferences, learn about potential medical interventions, and determine the type of support that will best meet your needs.
We are on call for you 24/7 from 37- 42 weeks and are never more than a phone call away.
Our doulas will support you at the hospital, in the tub, in the operating room, or at home… wherever you choose to give birth.
We will then visit you at your home twice to support you and your family. During these visits we can do some newborn education, and debrief about your birth experience.
Packages start at $2500. Schedule a consultation today to learn more about how we can support you in labor.
We chose Aijanae to be our doula for the birth of our first child, and I couldn't be happier with that decision. From the moment we met her, Aijanae put me at ease; she was knowledgeable, calm and friendly. In our pre-birth appointments, she helped us out both practical concerns (i.e. just what exactly do you need to pack in your hospital bags?) as well as checking in with us emotionally.
I ended up being induced 9 days after our baby's due date, a decision which made me feel a bit anxious. Aijanae was there every step of the way, helping me feel relaxed and making sure I was on board with the various medical decisions that needed to be made. Once labor really got going, I was SO glad Aijanae was there with us. I felt like she was on my same wavelength and I was able to focus on her words and advice. Even as contractions got more intense, I wasn't ever worried because I knew she was there supporting me. I eventually made the decision to get an epidural, and Aijanae helped facilitate that process as well.
Aijanae was also a big support for my husband, which was important to us. He wanted to play an active role in the labor and delivery but wasn't entirely sure how. Having Aijanae there allowed him to focus more on me and my needs. I was also grateful that Aijanae routinely checked in with him, making sure he was getting water, food and rest breaks.
Aijanae has been a big help during my postpartum recovery as well. I provided her with our insurance information, and she was able to recommend pelvic floor physical therapists who accept that insurance. So much nicer than having to search an insurance company's website!
All in all, we loved our experience with Aijanae. I'd recommend her to any couple getting ready to welcome a new child.
