“Thank you again for sharing your knowledge about the options so that we could make decisions that work best for us. We are anticipating our birthday with even more excitement!” - Lizzie
Make it a Happy Birthday!
Your baby's birthday is the biggest event of your life and it can be a fulfilling, beautiful celebration. Creating a team of trusted individuals that support you in reaching your specific goals is key to your empowerment and well being. We are happy to become part of your dream team of dedicated professionals to help you achieve your desired type of delivery. Our client calendar is limited to 2-3 births per month per doula - schedule a FREE interview by telephone or video call.
When working with one of The Happiest Doulas, you'll receive support for your childbirth preferences. We encourage you to find your ideal path to welcome your baby into this world. We cheerlead you during pregnancy, labor and postpartum by providing information so you can make informed and empowered decisions that meet the needs and desires for your family. Our doulas make sure your voice is heard during childbirth and that your plan is read and followed by the hospital staff.
In the weeks that follow your baby's birthday, we can answer questions about postnatal and breastfeeding issues. We are your 2:00 in the morning (or afternoon) buddy that offers a friendly and sympathetic ear when the rest of the world is asleep or unavailable. No concern or question is silly or unimportant when you are worried and need assurance and we're more than happy to help!
If requested, we'd love to visit you during your postpartum period. We can meet for coffee to catch up, talk about your baby's birthday and take photos as keepsakes. Many clients regularly share with us their photos and videos, and stay in touch long term - we consider them part of our extended family.
Our hope is that our clients use us as a resource for pregnancy and beyond. Be sure to follow The Happiest Doula boards on Pinterest. Specifically, the Birth Doula / Labor Support Board includes many helpful articles posted by midwives, doulas, childbirth educators and lactation consultants from all over the country. Also, feel free to ask questions and join in our Facebook discussions. See you there!
