Richmond VA Doula: New things have arrived!

All Things Doula has decided to to branch out and expand our horizon starting October 1st!  Apart from us already offering Birth Doula services and postpartum servicese we are now offering a new class.  This class is called All Things Pregnancy and Baby! Its listed under the “What I do” tab on our website. This class will cover the basics of pregnancy, labor, delivery, postpartum along with resources and handouts on various topics pertaining to childbirth. This is done in a one-on-one setting with me and a single couple. Please contact me for date/time availability, as well as cost. This class is currently being offered at a discounted rate to help get the word out that we are expanding! Please spread the word about All Things Doula and the class we offer now, as well as future classes to come.

I decided to start branching out into teaching some childbirth prep classes because I enjoy what I do. I am passionate about preparing moms and dads for the normals of delivery, as well as the preparation for whatever kind of delivery you want! Each class with an individual couple will receive a class tailored for their needs and wants for their delivery. 11076291 950406228333614 1360642313892744789 n Richmond VA Doula: New things have arrived!

A new testimony from an All Things Doula birth! Enjoy

When we found out i was pregnant with our 2nd child I knew I wanted to try for a VBAC. I also knew that having a knowledgeable doula on my side would help me achieve my goal. When I was pregnant with my first I had heard about doulas but I didn’t totally understand their purpose. But this time I had a mission to find a great one. I wasn’t even sure where to start though. I posted in a local mom facebook group looking for recommendations or experiences and that’s when Sarah contacted me. What Sarah doesn’t know is that I had tried contacting another doula previous to Sarah contacting me but call it fate or divine intervention, that doula didn’t work out. Sarah and I met and instantly clicked. She seemed like she had a lot of experience. She had knowledge about the hospital I had planned on giving birth at, which I felt was important. And she seemed like an all around great, non-judgmental person. I was able to find an amazing prenatal care doctor. Unfortunately, she does not do births. But I knew with the support of my prenatal care doctor and the right (amazing) doula, it didn’t matter who caught my baby. As long as I had the right support system. And I did! Even though my little man came a few weeks early, Sarah was able to be there by our side for the whole ride. Having Sarah with us during this amazing, and fearful time was so helpful. She helped explain procedures and she had knowledge about the staff that worked with us. To top it off, she captured some beautiful pictures of a beautiful moment. I would highly recommend Sarah to everyone!! And if we ever get pregnant again we would definitely higher Sarah again!
