"Our birth experiences as women shape us and it is something we carry deep in our hearts for most of our lives. To have a child's mother loved, safe and nurtured while she is giving birth is the greatest gift you can give to an unborn child."
- Erica Falk
At San Mateo Doula, we are evolving our model of care to be able to continue serving you with the best individualized care
To help better serve our families San Mateo Doula is re-structuring our prenatal visits to offer 3 zoom / google hangout sessions hosted by Erica Falk, along with one post-partum / newborn care and sleep consultation hosted by Ashley Richards.
Post-partum check-ins and support via, text, phone, video or email are offered for the first 4 weeks after delivery will also be hosted by Erica.
Three prenatals include: 2 focusing on your childbirth education, birth preferences, phases of labor, positioning, coping techniques, and much more & 1 partner specific session.
This third session is focused on coaching the partner how to best support the birthing woman during labor and to address any individualized questions or concerns. We specifically want to extend our support to the partner during the birth process.
Erica and Ashley are working as a team, as each other’s primary backups and are offering IN PERSON LABOR SUPPORT at your home, following you to the hospital and continuing to support you through the labor and delivery as current hospital polices allow.
If in person support isn’t allowed we are available for support via phone and video during labor. FaceBook Portal, Zoom and Google Hangouts can all be utilized for this. Erica and Ashley have successfully helped several clients through labor with remote video conferencing. This allows us to communicate with the providers and help the birthing families to make informed, evidence based decisions including positioning support, providing individualized information, visual aids to help facilitate progress, all while educating and supporting the family during the process of birth.
Now more than ever, we want to give you birthing peace of mind.
