ANTEPARTUM SUPPORT DOULA



Simply, an Antepartum Doula supports families who are dealing with pregnancy complications or high-risk pregnancies, who may or may not be on bed rest but are facing limitations. I focus on all the little things that you're probably telling yourself that you should do: grocery shopping, meal prepping, laundry, housekeeping. All those little activities add up, especially when your doctor has recommended that you take it easy and focus on growing your sweet little bundle(s). 

 

THERE ARE MANY COMPLICATIONS IN PREGNANCY THAT MAY LEAD TO BED REST, INCLUDING :

    • Hyperemesis Gravidarum 

    • Gestational Diabetes

    • Preeclampsia

    • Incompetent Cervix

    • Unexplained Bleeding

    • Hypertension 

    • Multiples (Twins+)

    • Placenta abruption, previa or accreta

    • Premature rupture of membranes

    • Low amniotic fluid

    • Anxiety

    • Exhaustion

When I'm supporting you, I'm also supporting your whole family. I quietly step in, offering detailed attention to your needs. I can assist with housekeeping, child tending, meal prepping, nursery organization, as well as assisting with research and understanding the current evidence-based recommendations. My main focus is that you feel supported and empowered and that you get the rest your healthcare provider has recommended.

I listen to you: your concerns, your fears, how you're feeling. Along with recognizing those feelings, I can also offer outside resources, coping techniques, resources for boredom, as well as techniques to help you relax.
