Doula Support & Other Services:
I am passionate about providing safe, respectful, client-centered care for families who desire a home birth. I attend home births in Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Scio, Brownsville, Salem and the surrounding areas. I am able to bill many types of insurance. As my home birth client, your package includes:
Experience the Birth with Liz advantage:
I am experienced in attending waterbirths and am happy to support you as you labor and birth in the water. I have a birth pool available (free) for client use.
Some mothers need to birth in a hospital setting and don't want to miss out on midwifery care. For these mothers, collaborative care meets both needs. My clients can have midwifery care throughout their pregnancies and a planned hospital birth with their midwife there for support, followed by comprehensive postpartum/newborn care and breastfeeding support.
I enjoy supporting families who may need to birth in a hospital setting or have chosen the hospital as their birth place and desire a natural birth.
When you hire me as your doula, you benefit from my experience and training as both a doula and a midwife. My midwifery training informs the suggestions I give, whether it's fetal positioning, maternal comfort, or helping labor progress. I am also able to provide you with information on tests and procedures during both pregnancy and labor.
I have attended births at Lebanon Community Hospital, Albany Samaritan General Hospital, Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Salem Hospital, Sacred Heart Medical Center, Stayton and Silverton Hospital; I am happy to support you at any area hospital.
Birth Doula Package - $750
My birth doula service package includes:
As your Postpartum Doula, I do whatever you need so that you are able to best enjoy and care for your new baby. My role changes from day to day, as the needs of your family change. I offer both daytime and nighttime support with infant care, emotional and informational support, babywearing education, breastfeeding support, sibling care, light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, home organization, errand runs and safety education. My goal is to promote your bonding with your new baby while helping to create a sense of balance during the new family's recovery.
I began offering placenta encapsulation services to clients in 2011 and have seen amazing results. Moms report improvements in mood, feeling calmer and more centered, increased milk supply, and boosted energy levels.
I offer placenta encapsulation services to everyone, regardless of birth location. If you birth at a hospital, I will give you instructions on taking your placenta home with you. There is an additional charge for pickup if you are over 30 minutes from my home.
