Emotional and Comforting Support
Labor and birth support includes on call coverage from 38-41 weeks with twenty-four hour availability to text or call. During active labor, Robin provides assistance with comfort measures through massage, breathing exercises, and holding space for the birthing mother. Robin stays with the mother and child for one to two hours after birth to assist with getting settled, fed, and comfortable. As mother and child become acquainted with each other, Robin assists with breastfeeding initiation.
Packages for Labor & Birth Support services include two prenatal visits, labor and birth support, the first two hours after birth to settle in and learn to latch and begin breast feeding, and one postpartum visit in the home within two weeks of birth.
