Fertility Doula Services

"Doula-ing"....
The act of  educating, respecting, caring, empowering, listening, embracing, loving, advocating for, and assisting a woman prenatally, during labor, childbirth, and after.
She is not a healthcare provider.... She is a mother-figure of the most ancient kind.
Her life experience empowers you.  She is a reassuring presence  who will always listen to you and support you in your chosen path.  She will remind you of those choices, and the reasons you made them, when you doubt or are anxious & afraid.  She sees you;  the real you.  Her understanding of your journey supports your self-confidence.  She eases your pain with a touch, a word, a look.
She is a friend.  

She is a Doula.

a letter to you...

Dear Desiring Parents,

This season of your life is hard, no doubt about it.
A well-planned fertility & support team is one of the essential tools for you to use to have the most success & satisfaction during this tough time in your life.  I am grateful that you’re considering making me a part of that team!
You may have questions about fertility doula care and my philosophy on fertility & birth.   
Please feel free to ask me any questions during or after our initial interview.   

I have been down the infertility road myself.
My husband and I struggled for four years trying to conceive, before we finally had
our first miracle baby.  We tried naturally, we took all the supplements, did all of the things.
We then tried 4 IUI's, none of which were successful.  Negative test after negative test.
Trust me, I was full of hopelessness, despair, and complete depression & anxiety all the time.
My husband even had surgery to try to help his sperm count & quality to be improved... no change.
So, after a time of waiting, prayer, healing, reflection (and saving money),
we decided to go ahead and pursue our last option to conceive children of our own..... IVF.
Thanks to my amazing team of doctors, that was successful and we now have
two precious IVF miracle boys.

My goal is to help women and their partners through this tough journey of infertility.
While I can't guarantee success, or perform the procedures for you.  I can come to you with love & support,
holistic natural information that can help aid your treatments in being more successful, prayers for you & your partner, a shoulder to lean on in difficult times, and someone to celebrate in your early successes before you're ready to share with the world!  I can be emotional, educational, physical, and any other kind of support you need.
My goal is to help you guys come away from the experience
feeling proud of your story no matter how it unfolds.

BIRTH CENTER BIRTHs

Birth is often viewed as messy and unattractive.
But really, birth is miraculous, raw, vulnerable, and amazingly beautiful. You are about to embark on
one of the most empowering, transformative moments of your life. 
So why not capture these emotional events that tell your story?
And create memories you can share with your kids for a lifetime to come?

It's a day you've waited for over 9 months to experience, and I want to help you remember every beautiful detail of it.
Similar to your wedding day...This day can be such a blur by the end. 
Especially for you as you are enduring each contraction & uncomfortable moment. Because of these moments,
it can cause the good and special moments to blur as well. I am there to catch all of these little details,
to keep these memories alive.
This way, you also aren't having to burden your partner or family to document these things....
They can stay living in the moment.

What Doula Services
Include:

I serve my clients in two ways:  as a Fertility Doula, and a Birth Doula.



  • Evidence-based information on tracking & charting their fertility.
  • Holistic resources that help along their fertility journey.
  • Using a Mind-Body approach to aid in conception with reduced stress.
  • Working with both partners to ensure they maximize their fertility window
    & treatment process.
  • Helping the client to navigate their options for medications & reproductive treatment cycles.
  • A shoulder to lean on in times of anxiety, confusion, stress, joy, sorrow, & all of the highs
and lows along their journey.
  • Even physical support during their fertility appointments, or through a pregnancy loss.
  • Full-scope pregnancy loss support.
  • As many in-person visits as needed to fully support the fertility journey, and open
communication via email, text, and phone calls as needed/desired.


YOU NEVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS ALONE!

As a Fertility Doula, my clients receive:

I like to meet in-person with every client that is interested in booking with me for Doula Services, either for Fertility or Birth (or both).
This helps with the both of us getting comfortable with one another, and lets us know if we mesh well personality-wise.
Each doula is different.  We are unique in our own ways.
I have a great love & passion for fertility, birth, & babies that started when I was young...& was nurtured in my own fertility journey & throughout my nursing career too.
Your Fertility Journey, and your baby's Birth are such intimate times, that I like to make sure you are comfortable with me
from the very start.


Booking:

During our initial meeting, if meeting for Fertility Doula services,
we will discuss your fertility journey thus far,
get to know one another, & I'll listen to your goals/plans/and needs.
We will then go over what my services entail,
have time for you guys to get to know me and my personal 
history of infertility & that journey for my family,
and then answering any questions you may have.

To make your initial consultation go smoothly,
I recommend that you:
- ASK QUESTIONS
- DO YOUR RESEARCH
- KNOW YOUR DESIRES
- KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS
- KNOW YOUR BIRTH PLAN

Why Hire a Doula?

Doulas are there for you to:
-   Provide information including prenatal/postpartum education & resources,
-   Answer questions about fertility, treatments, labor & birth,
-   Emotionally support you...including encouragement  & a shoulder to cry on when needed,
- Give relaxation techniques & emotional relief measures,
-   Be physical support if needed during your fertility appointments/treatments,
-   Foster positive communication with your doctors/nurses,
-   Support you in informed decision-making,
-   Provide natural fertility support information & education

Once you decide you want to hire me to be a part of your team,
you will need to decide which Doula package you want
to purchase.   I will then send you a Contract to sign
electronically, and an Invoice for your Retainer Fee/Booking
deposit to pay securely online.
Once these two things are completed, I will officially be
booked for your chosen services.

Once booked, we will set up any in-person appointments
you may need with me. 
You will also start receiving periodic texts & emails
from me to check in, along with educational tips/info...
These emails will address things you may be experiencing,
 tips and advice for your stage of fertility/treatments you may be
going through, fertility boosting supplements,
important reminders and notes for you, contact info, etc.
These will be essential for you, and our communication,
so please be sure to read these once you receive them.   
And if you do not see these emails in your inbox,
 check your spam folder, and notify me.

The Process:

For Fertility Doula services, I am available starting whenever you need my consultation time to start. 
For example, if you purchase my basic 4 week package,
this 4 weeks will typically begin shortly before you are
about to undergo a fertility treatment cycle.   
However, if you have hired me to aid in natural conception,
or if you'd like my services to begin
earlier in the treatment process,
my time can begin whenever YOU need me.
