“What if I have a C Section Birth?” I support the Birthing Person in however Birth occurs. Birthing is individual; One size doesn’t fit all. Either Scheduled or unplanned, Sometimes Babies require extra help to safely enter the world. Upon the approval of the Hospital Staff, I will be there for you. I stay close to Mom in the Operating Room and we recite a calm and peaceful Birth Affirmation to welcome your Baby. As Baby emerges, I ask everyone in the Room to softly sing “Happy Birthday” to your baby. Hearing that first cry with everyone singing, is so beautiful. If you have desired Birth Photography, I will take all the photos and video I can. I stay until Mom is stable, has ate a hearty meal and Baby has nursed well. All Doula Services mentioned above (1-7) will still occur. Doula fees do not increase (or decrease) based on Birth Outcomes or Labor/Birth Duration.

“Our Midwife recommended Jessica and she was right: Her experience, presence and knowledge was the perfect addition to our birth. Jessica brought calm and peace to the both of us. We feel so blessed to have been connected to Jess and have her help us through our second birth; in honoring our cultural birth traditions, I’m so grateful for that. My birth was everything I wanted and more.” -Sa’Rah
