Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your baby!  The way a woman feels when she gives birth has a lasting effect on her and her baby.  A family will remember the day their baby was born for the rest of their lives.  The goal at Gulf Coast Doula is to support families so they look back on that memory feeling they were prepared, encouraged, empowered, and fully supported.

Childbirth Preparation

2hr $75   4 hr $150

Individual consults are available separately for the couples who would like to prepare for childbirth but may not need continuous labor support.  During these consults, Gulf Coast Doula will help prepare you for labor, assist you in writing a birth plan, and teach coping and relaxation techniques.  They will tailor a session based on your individual goals and needs to help you prepare for your birth. If you are unable to attend a Childbirth Education course, this a great option for you. If you have previously taken a course or have experienced labor before and simply need a refresher, this is a great option for you as well.  Students leave class with quality resources to refer to during pregnancy and beyond..
