Complete Description of Heaven&Birth care:

Our consultation is an opportunity for you to ask questions, discover our temperaments and philosophy of birth, and share your hopes and concerns, your priorities and your vision. You may request a consultation on our Contact page. We meet with families in three locations: Manassas (3rd Friday) and Fairfax (4th Friday), as well as Chantilly (first Saturday).

Once hired, we are immediately available via phone, text, and email, and will always answer as quickly as possible. Our clients receive complete access to a thoughtful collection of articles, podcasts, videos, links, and tips we have created. Our group text system allows us to communicate effectively throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We also invite you to attend our prenatal meetings, which are held once a month at Reston Women’s Center in Reston, VA. These gatherings are an opportunity to discuss birth preferences, learn all of our best comfort measures, figure out the logistics of working with a doula through a birth, and hear birth stories. Attendees also receive folders containing an incredible amount of resources and insights. This kind of horizontal learning and community building is a wonderful way to build confidence in your ability to anticipate the birth of your child with joy. We do ask that our clients attend any comprehensive childbirth class, as well.

Doula Date Nights are another chance to spend time with us. Every client has the option to attend prenatal meetings and Doula Date Nights as often as they find necessary to feel comfortable, informed, and knowledgeable.

Our on-call period begins at full term, as we guide and encourage, and decide together when it is time for your doula to join you. Your doula will support you (unless you ask for privacy) through the birth of your precious baby, and afterwards until you ready for quiet time as a new family. We are always glad to take pictures and video, at your request. As experienced doulas, we can offer the option of the hands and heart, perspective and care of another well-trained, enthusiastic “shadow” doula, at no additional charge.

Our postpartum care includes listening to your birth experience, and assisting with any resources you may need in the postpartum period, as you settle into a new rhythm of life. Welcome, baby!

Optional additional services available upon request:

Heaven&Birth offers pro bono assistance for the Gabriel Project and Embracing Grace. If you are experiencing a crisis pregnancy or your baby has entered perinatal hospice, we are here to serve you.
