Labor and Delivery Support


I ask that you contact me at the onset of labor and we will evaluate what is going on.

  • We will decide when it is best for me to come and to meet you, at home, or at the hospital.
  • I provide continuous support for you and your husband/support person during labor and delivery. 
  • In the case of a C-section I will support your husband/support person and baby until you are out of surgery.  
  • After the baby is born I will remain with you until breastfeeding is established and you are comfortable with me leaving, usually this is 1 to 3 hours.

 Prenatal Appointments

 

Prenatal appointments include 1 to 2 meeting with you before baby arrives.

  • We will discuss scope of service for a doula.
  • We will discuss and develop a plan on how to handle pain management.
  • You will practice labor and birth positions.
  • As a labor doula  we will discuss how we can best work with your midwife or doctor.
  • Personal breastfeeding support is included in my doula services in Rapid City and the Black Hills area.
