Our goal here at Doula Mae Birth Services is to set you and your partner up for a positive and AMAZING birth experience! Ideally Education and Doula support is best in person, however, sometimes virtual or distant support may be the best and only way to receive the support you desire. All virtual face-to-face support will be held via Zoom or Google Hangout/Duo.
FREE 35 minute Consultations
Consultations are available to anyone interested in learning more about any services Doula Mae offers. Take this time to discuss your questions, concerns, and options you have with certified Doula and Educator, Samantha Martin.
Common questions may include, Childbirth Education, transferring care, hiring a professional support person aka a doula, etc.
The Birth Boot Camp® curriculum is largely based on the Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative. It is designed to provide current evidence backed information about common pregnancy, birth, and postpartum topics. There are two options to ensure you are well prepared for an AMAZING birth and postpartum experience!
