"From the moment you become a client, your well-matched, experienced doula team goes on-call for you, providing unbiased, continual support and reassurance until after your birth. While no two doula-client relationships are the same, all Birth Doula Packages include invitations to our monthly Community Prenatal Meetings, a private, in-home meeting with your primary doula team, unlimited phone and email support, unlimited in-person support during labor and immediate postpartum support following birth. Because your primary doulas are backed by the consistency of the agency model, there are no unknown back-up doulas. This means there are no unfamiliar faces in the moments when you need support the most, and the sense of community established in pregnancy is maintained throughout your birth and beyond."
I love this photo because it truly represents the dedication these women have. Remember that ice storm last month? Emerald Doulas sure do - because they braved the weather to serve their families and offer unconditional support, no matter the cold. Babies come when they're ready, even if schools are closed, and Emerald Doulas was right there for their clients, ready and willing to help welcome a new life into the blustery world.

All of this makes Emerald Doulas so incredibly important and unique.

Another service Emerald Doulas provides is one that would have been so wonderful for my family. They are offering free weight checks with their Lactation Consultant for parents concerned about weight gain. Free! Meaning no co-pays! Interested parents just have to call and make sure someone is here to let them in.
now is the time to get to know Emerald Doulas.
