LivModer Pregnancy Doula

(does not include support during birth)

LivModer Pregnancy/Prenatal Doula support help you enjoy your pregnancy and prepare for birth and postpartum.

Although I believe the extra support offered by a doula during birth can be invaluable, I certainly don’t believe that you must have a doula present in order to have the birth you desire. However, I do believe that knowing your rights and all your options and exploring your personal beliefs and motivations, increases your ability to work out want you want and why. This in turn enables you to prepare for your birth physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I believe this greatly increases your chances of having a positive birthing experience, and a smoother transition into motherhood. 

 

Research show that having continuous support during birth improves outcomes for both mother and baby. By supporting the person (co-parent, or other), who you have chosen to be present at your birth, as well as giving them information, insights and practical tools - this doula service enables them to support you in the best way possible. 

The Pregnancy Doula service is available from the very beginning of pregnancy, or whenever you feel the need. However, the earlier we connect the more you will get out of this support, which includes:

  • Ongoing contact over email and phone.

  • 2 in person meetings (6 hours in total), where we unpack the meaning of birth for you, I share information and resources and you have a chance to vent feelings and thoughts and ask questions. The content of these meetings are based on your individual needs.

  • A private Birth Preparation Course in the comfort of your home. Read more.

  • Support with making a Birth- and a Postpartum Plan which clearly states your needs, wishes and demands. 

  • 1 LivModer Pregnancy Massage (2-hour) and 2 Osteopathy treatments.

  • LivModer Mother Blessing Ceremony. Read more.

  • 6 Weekly home visits (3-4 hours each, including treatment). The focus during the home visits are on you and your family's individual needs and wishes. It may for example include supporting you to process your birth story, help with breastfeeding, baby-care (including baby massage), practical help (such as light house work and cooking) etc. However, your exact needs may not become apparent until after the birth, so there is a lot of flexibility in how this time can be used, to ensure that it is of most benefit to you.
