Brave Birth Doulas offer many services to support you and your growing family. They offer up to three prenatal appointments focused on preparing for labor and finetuning any details tailored to your unique needs. Doulas help you with your birth plan and choose your birth preferences. They are not only there for your physical, emotional, and informational support, but they are there for the entire family however they are needed. Once you hit the 37 mark, the doulas are available 24/7 for on-call support before labor. They will stay with you throughout the entire labor and after to help with latching and breastfeeding. 

A few weeks after your little one arrives, they will visit you and your family to check in as you ease into parenthood and provide up to 6 weeks of virtual support. For all moms, you also will get complete access to the new parent group. Here, you can chat with other moms about planning, pregnancy, and any other parenting concerns.

Payments & Add-Ons

Each doula works on a sliding scale and offers flexible payment plans, as they charge based on your specific needs and their level of expertise. Some insurances offer reimbursement, so be sure to check before you render any services. Brave Birth Doulas offers add-ons, including a childbirth education class that helps you prepare specifically for labor. 

They also offer an add-on called First Night Home, where a doula will come home with you for 8 hours the night you come home from the hospital to support you and your family with whatever you need. They offer placenta encapsulation and prenatal in-home massages as add-ons if that interests you.
