The Get You Started Package is designed for families who would like a little bit of support postpartum and are looking for a more affordable option than our other, larger packages. It includes: 1 hospital visit, 1 overnight, 1 follow up AND unlimited text/phone/video support from the pre-birth meeting until 1 week postpartum.
Free Consultation to meet with Laurie Ann and Dani and determine if we are a good fit for each other. Your deposit of $200 is due at the time of booking and signing the contract to secure your spot on our calendar.
Pre-birth meeting, about one month prior to the due date, with the parents to discuss birth goals, parenting philosophy and specific expectations for doula services. We will also discuss our top recommended baby, postpartum, and feeding products to ensure you are best prepared for the birth of your baby. At this meeting your remaining package balance $550 is due.
Hospital Visit within 24 hours of the birth. This is a great opportunity for Laurie Ann or Dani to assist you in feeding techniques as well as answer any other questions and concerns you may have while in the hospital. The sooner it is, the better to learn these important techniques in caring for your baby.
Overnight Visit (10pm-6am) to provide you and your family rest for your best recovery. During an overnight visit, Laurie Ann will provide care for your baby through the night so the rest of the family can rest as much as possible. If you are breastfeeding, Laurie Ann will support you with feedings throughout the night.
Follow Up Home Visit to support the establishment of best feeding and baby soothing techniques. This is a great opportunity to give baby's first bath, learn how to use equipment, and work towards any of your goals with a little extra support. We oftentimes encourage mom and dad to take a rest, take a shower, or even go grab a coffee together just to have some time alone.
