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, childbirth, and 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.

Currently, our doulas are only offering consults for birth and postpartum planning.  For referrals to certified birth doulas in our area to support you during your labor, please contact our office.  We are in the process of updating our birth and postpartum doula program; details about the new program will be announced in 2022.

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 a follow-up birth plan review via email, or schedule a Comprehensive Consult ($150), which includes (2) in-person meetings and (1 ) follow-up review via email or in-person, depending on your needs.  Click HERE for more information, or contact us to schedule.

Postpartum Planning Consult     $60

This 2-hour private consultation will help you plan for an easier adjustment to the postpartum period after your baby has arrived.  Anyone who will be supporting you during the days, weeks, and months following your birth is welcome to attend; this would be a great time for them to learn about your needs and expectations in regards to your recovery from the birth, caring for your newborn (and for your older children, if you have them), meal planning, daily and nightly schedules, and any other details that will help make this transition easier for everyone involved.

The cost for this consult includes our digital postpartum planner as well as a copy of the Mother & Baby Care guide that is used in our Fourth Trimester class.
