UPDATE (August 2020): I have begun my journey as a registered nurse and will be working in a mother-baby unit in a local hospital. I am not taking new doula clients at this time, but may teach private childbirth classes on a limited basis.
“She was the calming, steadfast, reassurance we all needed throughout the labor and delivery process and beyond!”~Kelsey Z.
As your doula, I’ll be with you every step of the way…
Before the Birth:
Unlimited phone, text, and e-mail support throughout your pregnancy.
One or two prenatal visits, where we will discuss your birth plan and comfort measures, as well as rehearse good positions for labor.
Accompanying you to a doctor’s visit or hospital tour, if you wish.
Having me on call 24/7 from 38 weeks until your baby is born.
Please note that my doula services complement, but are not a substitute for my comprehensive childbirth class.
I was blessed to support my daughter during both of her births.
During Labor, Birth, and the Immediate Postpartum Period:
Early labor support as needed. In most cases, it’s best for me to come to your home and help you labor at home as long as possible, to reduce your time in the hospital.
Continual, uninterrupted support at your chosen birthplace throughout labor and birth.
Help with breastfeeding and immediate postpartum support.
I can take pictures during labor and after the birth.
“Olivia has a genuine concern for new mothers and is dedicated to helping them have the best birth experience possible.” ~ Julie B.
After the birth:
One or two postpartum visits, to help with breastfeeding, provide desired resources, and discuss your birth experience.
Detailed birth notes for you to have as a keepsake.
Interested in learning more about my experience as a doula and as a mother?
I offer a no-obligation meeting where you and your partner can learn about me and my services. While I serve families throughout the region, the heart of my practice is in the North Dallas area, including McKinney, Allen, and Plano.
