Birth and Postpartum Doula Support for Families in the Silicon Valley

Service Offerings

When you choose our team to support your family, you are getting so much more than just labor support.  You are ensuring that you will be supported during your labor by a team of doulas who are entirely committed and present for you and your birth. Having our team in your corner means you know who will be by your side, whether we’re with you for two hours or two days.

Our prenatal workshops are included at no cost to our birth clients. Our workshops are an excellent way to get to know other families, expand upon your knowledge of childbirth, and learn how you can optimize your birth experience. During our labor coping workshops we integrate brain training, mindfulness practices, and hands-on practice to help you develop effective coping skills to use during labor, birth, and beyond. No two workshops are alike and our clients leave feeling excited and confident about their upcoming birth.

Our in-home prenatal visit is a key component in your individualized care. During our prenatal consultation we will discuss what you might expect during the last few weeks of pregnancy and on your birthing day. We will also discuss your birth preferences and review your birth and postpartum plans so that we understand your vision for your birth experience. We also drop off our complimentary TENS rental unit and provide instruction for its use, in addition to discussing and practicing other comfort measures as appropriate. With the remaining time, we are available to answer questions and address your concerns. Additional in-home or virtual prenatal consultations are available to add-on to our birth package and can cover a wide variety of topics or support with processing previous birth experiences or fears about birth.

Our comprehensive package includes much more than labor support:

  • Prepare for a positive birth experience during fun, informative, and non-scary prenatal workshops on the 2nd and 3rd Saturday of each month in Los Gatos, CA.
  • Get peace of mind knowing where to go with all your questions about all the things. Our package includes phone, text, and email support during your pregnancy and throughout your fourth trimester.
  • Don’t waste your time with fear-mongering or pollyanna birth books and blogs. Cut through the noise with access to our curated recommendations and resources, many of which are available through our lending library of books, audios, and videos.
  • A private in-home prenatal consultation to explore your wishes and desires for your birth
  • Woven layers of support to ensure that you are supported no matter how long your labor lasts
  • A complimentary rental of one of our exclusive Labor Support Kits, including an ELLE Labor TENS Unit
  • An in-home visit to check in on you and your family after your baby is born

Our comprehensive package starts at $2250

Packages start at $500/days, $1200/nights. Contact us for a custom quote. 

 

We offer partial scholarships for our services – everyone who wants labor support should have access to it!  Please inquire if you feel like doula support is for you but you are unsure how to afford it.

Please let us know if you would like to donate towards our scholarship fund. Unfortunately at this time your donations will not be tax deductible. That being said, our doulas serve on the boards of local 501c3 organizations that support families in our community and we would be more than happy to help you make tax-deductible donations to our local non-profits working for families in our neighborhoods.
