Why a Team
Before officially combining our practice, we worked together closely
for over two years as independent doulas, analyzing both what worked
well (and what didn't work so well) with the solo practice business model.
Doula work is highly relational and extremely rewarding. It is high-trust
work both with our clients and with our partners. A 24/7 on-call life style
and long births is also relentlessly demanding and unpredictable and not
surprisingly doulas have a high burn out rate. We love our work and we
want to be able to continuing doing it for years to come. We think you
deserve professional labor support from a doula that has the reserves
and energy, physically and emotionally, to support the demands of your
labor. We will provide the doula that is best able to do that without
compromising the connection you want or the energy you need and deserve.
With our mother-daughter team:
- You will develop a close working relationship and warm connection with both of us.
- You will have the benefit of the breadth of experience of two doulas, for consult throughout your pregnancy, labor and early postpartum.
- You will receive continuous labor support from the most energetically equipped doula. Meaning we will send the freshest doula and we will also seamlessly transition labor support, in the case of a very long birth, to ensure you are receiving the best support.
The team model offers a safe guard for you and supports sustainability for us. As a complementary and highly integrated, mother-daughter team of only two, we believe we can offer you better service than we did as independents, without sacrificing the ideal of choosing a doula which you feel is a good fit for you personally.
