Birthing therapy is a collaborative process between birth therapist and client(s). Women are accompanied in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. Emotional support, physical comfort will be provided; and as needed, communication with the staff to make sure that you have the information needed to make informed decisions as they arise in labor.
The birth therapist provides reassurance and perspective to the woman and her husband and/or family, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning and other techniques for comfort.
It consists of: two one-hour prenatal meetings; one postpartum meeting; customized birth plan; unlimited phone calls, texts, and email support; on-call assistance from 35 weeks, without blackout dates; back-up birthing therapist support; labor and birth support (from home, if requested) with customized integrative herbal services (i.e. aromatherapy, herbal compress, herbal teas, bath and body products, African wrapper, etc.); and one herbal mommy+baby care kit.
