During the birth itself I will help by providing relaxation coaching, massage, support to both birther and partner, a calming presence and a stand-by encyclopedia of information in case changes to the plan occur. I will do everything I can to help you stick to your birth plan, but birth (and babies!) can be unpredictable, so I will be on hand to help you make informed decisions as circumstances arise.
Once baby is delivered I will stay around for 1-2 hours to make sure you are settled and set up for success right from the get-go. If your choice is to breastfeed then I will be on hand to help for that as well!
