In nearly every culture throughout history, women have been cared for and surrounded by other women during childbirth. A doula provides emotional, physical, and informational support to the woman and her partner during labor, birth and with their newborn.
I am a homebirth midwife based in the Belfast, Maine area. I provide doula care to families living in the midcoast area, including the communities of Rockland, Augusta, Bangor, Ellsworth and Belfast.
Doula Care Includes
- Consultation visit
- Prenatal planning visit
- Phone/email consultations as needed
- Continuous labor support through 1-2 hours postpartum
- Initial breastfeeding support
- Additional postpartum/ breastfeeding support as needed
A series of 8 natural childbirth classes can be added for a discounted rate. Doula clients are strongly encouraged to attend Laura's childbirth classes.
