Secure, Dependable Support
Choosing the doula who will be at your side at the most transformative time in your life is an important decision! Phoenix Family Birth highly values building trusting relationships; for this reason, we provide you with two doulas so that you have a well-rounded team to meet your needs.
Phoenix Family Birth Doulas Are So Much More Than Labor Coaches
You can be certain that your Phoenix Family Birth doula will be attentive to your needs and provide continuity of care—an essential component of doula support. We go on-call for you immediately upon hire and are available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until your baby arrives.
We will meet with you for up to two prenatal visits during your pregnancy to get to know your plans and wishes, and to get to know you. You may have questions that arise between visits. Take comfort in knowing you can call, text, and email us as often as you like. Our doulas are required to remain up-to-date with continuing education, and we will be happy to provide evidence-based information and resources to help you make decisions that are right for your individual family.
When you are ready for us to join you in labor, we will come to your home to support you and we will help you assess when it’s the “right” time to go. From the moment you call, we will be fully present to meet all of your needs. We work alongside you, instinctively providing educational, physical, and emotional support tailored to you, until you are comfortably snuggled up with your bundle of joy.
Then, we’ll give you the time and space you need to bond as a family, but we’re still just a phone call away if you need us.
As birth is a unique experience whether it’s your first or your fifth or beyond, we will visit you again during your postpartum recovery to answer any questions you may have about your delivery, and to help you adjust to your new role as parents. We believe in nurturing you while you nurture your baby. At these visits, we will discuss breastfeeding, sleep, and self-care, too, in addition to helping your home run smoothly so you don't have to worry about a thing!
The investment you make in your doula is an investment in your birth, your baby, and your family.
How Does a Doula Team Work?
Your doula team will meet you for a complimentary consultation to get to know one another. They both attend your prenatal visits to answer your questions, help you write your customized birth plan, and become very familiar with your physical and emotional needs in birth.
Your team shares a call schedule, given to you at the first prenatal. One of the doulas from your team will attend your birth to provide continuous support, and will also meet with you again for a postnatal visit. If for any reason your primary doula is not able to attend (illness, emergency, or at a birth), the secondary doula comes to you. This ensures that you don't have to worry about not having your doula in labor, because your doula team ensures built-in backup! Within the first two weeks after your baby is born, your doula partner will come to your home to provide three complimentary hours of postpartum care. Why? Because we value you and believe in well-rounded doula support into the fourth trimester.
