If you are considering hiring me as your birth doula:
Please allow yourself ample time to make the decision. I ask for your commitment in writing, via signing my contract, at least thirty (30) days out from your guess date (due date). This is for both our benefits. I need to prepare myself to be fully present at your birth and logistically in coordinating my calendar with personal plans and other clients and arranging a back-up doula. It allows us time to bring our relationship to the next level in a calm manner, and a natural pace so we’re fully comfortable when Baby comes. It allows time for me to meet your husband or partner. It allows me time to familiarize myself with your pregnancy, your wishes for your birth, and where you plan to deliver if I have not yet attended a birth there. You have a lot to do to prepare for Baby’s arrival. A doula is supposed to ease that process. Don’t let finding a doula stress you by making it a last-minute task. Pick up the phone, Mama, and book your doula!
