Jessica Potter, CLD, CCCE
As your doula, my services begin during pregnancy, when we get together during our prenatal meetings to discuss the vision you have for your birth and the choices that are important to you. I remain available via phone and email to assist you with questions, referrals, encouragement and support. You also will have access to my library of books on topics like pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and the postpartum period.
When your baby's birth day arrives, I am there for labor support whenever you feel you need an extra hand, whether that be at your home or your place of birth. I remain with you throughout your labor and delivery, offering encouragement, advocacy, positioning, comfort techniques and breastfeeding support. I keep detailed notes of your birthing experience and will provide those to you in the first few days postpartum. Upon my departure, I leave you with a new mommy and baby care package to help ease your way into the first week of having baby home.
For your delivery, I will also have lined up a back-up doula, just in case of those unexpected life hiccups or for very long labors so that your support will be continuous no matter the situation.
Following your delivery, I arrange a postpartum visit with you where we go over your birth experience and discuss your postpartum healing and adjusting. I am available for breastfeeding support, and will help encourage the parenting team and support people in your life as you embark on this new journey!
10% of all my fees go to Compassion International to help support mothers and newborns with prenatal care and qualified birth attendants.
