I am more than happy to meet with you. Consultation fee of $50 will go towards your services. Consultations are designed to discuss your concerns, fears, expectations and desires. If those services can be provided to you then we will schedule an interview. Interviews are designed to see if we are a good fit. I think it is very important to choose a Doula that you feel very comfortable with to invite to your birthing experience. During the interview, which last about 1 hour, we can talk more in-depth about my services and how they can work for you.
Triple B- Birth Support & Prenatal Package
*services start as early as the day you find out you’re pregnant!
When working with Bump.Baby.Bliss., you’ll receive support for your childbirth preferences. I coach you during pregnancy, labor, and briefly postpartum by providing you with resources to birthing classes, teaching you birthing techniques, teaching your partner massages, breastfeeding initial support, and more!
Birth Support & Prenatal Package includes:
Certified Doula services include:
- Two(2) prenatal (if needed) visits, including one with my backup doula if desired. Home visitation or a central location. Prenatal meetings are designed to a) discuss your birth plan, b) to discuss your preferred comfort measures, newborn procedures, labor positions, relaxation tips, and what to expect when labor begins. All of these techniques create relaxation and build confidence during your birthing time.
- Backup doula in an event that I have an emergency.
- 24 hour on-call, starting 4 weeks prior to your due date, ending the day of birth.

- Continued support 1 hour following delivery to help establishing breastfeeding if needed.

I will compensate appropriately in the event if there is an EMERGENCY on my behalf and cannot attend the birth or tested positive for Covid19. 3) Water Births are currently not allowed in local NC hospitals. 4) Mask wearing will be required during all face to face visits and at hospital. Mask and face shield will be worn by Certified Birth Doula.
