Milwaukee's judgment free-zone
It's wonderful you're considering doula support. Let's connect about all things birth, mothering, pregnancy, and postpartum.
As your doula, I support you physically, emotionally, and with current info. on area birth options. Our prenatal meetings are tailored to your situation.
We may go over:
-body-mind-spirit health for pregnancy
-authority figures and how they affect you in this sacred time
-stages of labor
-standard hospital interventions
-Spinning Babies, other doula "tricks."
-create a birth and a postpartum plan.
I am with you for labor, birth (no time-limit), and 1-2 hours after your baby is born for breast-feeding help and/or moral support.
Birthkeeper for home-birth: I am the Woman present in your home during your birth process as your baby swims Water to Earth. I ground, love, nourish, and nurture you as you release yourself and your baby to your inner wisdom. I may be one room away, and if and when you call me, I come to you. I stay for a few hours after birth as you hold and feed your baby for the first time.
Postpartum doula: Historically, people would settle in for 40 days with their newborns and do nothing but self-care and baby-care. As a postpartum doula I bridge this tradition to you. I see some clients a year after birth for day-care or reflective listening and some I see two times in the first week to keep it calm or to establish breast-feeding.
Birth: over 100 births attended, VBAC, "natural," planned epidural, csection, premature, long labor, short labor, induction, high risk, and more.
Postpartum: over 30 families served for breast-feeding support, emotional help, grounding, baby-help, chores, sibling help, errands, and more.
People: Any lifestyle, people with anxiety, prior trauma including birth trauma, single, big/small families, partner present/not present, any faith, belief system, and more.
Yours truly, Milwaukee doula Martha
