Doulamee FAQ's

A doula is a non-medical care provider who supports you, your partner, your baby, and other support team members during the prenatal, labor and postnatal stages of your journey. A doula provides evidence-based resources to you and your partner, helps navigate your “game plan,” communicates your birth preferences with your birth team, and advocates for a positive birthing experience for you and your family.

How does the B.A.B.E. class differ from a hospital birthing class?
Great question! The B.A.B.E. class is a fully inclusive childbirth education class. Doulamee believes in positive birth experiences, whatever that may be for each family. Doulamee offers four different series variations, including a virtual option, making it a convenient and comfortable learning experience for everybody. B.A.B.E. does not strictly focus on “unmedicated or medicated birth” but provides a range of options and information so each family can discover their own preferences. 

How do you plan to work with my partner?
My goal is to work alongside your partner to support them equally in the prenatal, labor, and postnatal stages.

Doulamee Support packages are designed to honor this special and transformative time in your life, and also in your relationship as new parents.
