The Nest Lakeland Doulas - support for pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.

Find out what we  doula!

The Nest Doulas provide non-clinical educational, emotional, and physical support to women and their families during pregnancy, labor, and in the postpartum period.   In this role, we share unbiased, evidence-based information and recommendations to aid women in making informed decisions about their care and that of their baby.   We are a resource and a source of support, helping our clients to feel confident as they make the best choices for them and their family.

Birth Doula Services     $900

A birth doula provides support to a woman during her pregnancy and birth experience.  This doula helps a mother and her partner navigate the unpredictability of labor, and also offers a variety of natural pain relief methods for the mother’s comfort.  The service includes two prenatal visits to help the family develop a personalized birth plan, the doula’s presence throughout active labor and birth, and one postpartum visit after the birth to provide additional support for both mother and baby.

Postpartum Doula Services     $20 per hour

A postpartum doula assists with the mother’s recovery after the birth and supports the new parents with caring for their newborn in the first three months of life.  This service includes caring for the mother’s physical and emotional needs in the immediate postpartum period, which is truly the first line of defense against postpartum depression.  The doula also assists with the family’s transition to life with a newborn – caring for the baby while mom rests, helping to establish proper feeding methods and routines, and offering help wherever needed with the goal of bringing the family to a state of comfortable independence.

Birth Planning Consult     $50-150

Every birth is unique, and no matter where you are choosing to birth - in a hospital, a birth center, or at home - there are a variety of options you can choose from to make your birth experience special and specific to your own individual needs.  In our private consults, one of our doulas will share evidence-based information that will help you decide what choices are most important to you, what interventions you would like to avoid, what alternatives you are comfortable with, how you might like to proceed if your plans change during the birth, and what options you might want to do more research on before making a final decision - and we'll have the resources to help you with that as well!

Schedule a 2-hour Consult with one of our doulas ($50), which includes follow-up birth plan review via email, or a Comprehensive Consult ($150), which includes (2) in-person meetings and (1 ) follow-up review via email or in-person, depending on your needs.  For more information, click HERE or contact our Doula Program Director.
