Antepartum- Before childbirth, commonly known as the prenatal period.
Not everyone has the privilege of having a low risk and joyful pregnancy experience. To hold space for expectant parents experiencing complications such Hyperemesis Gravidarum, Preeclampsia, Hypertension, multiple babies, Placenta Previa, Gestational Diabetes, an incompetent cervix, bed rest, or anxiety we provide compassionate care during pregnancy as well. Antepartum Doula support is a lot like that of a Postpartum Doula, but baby is not earthside yet. Our practice believes everyone deserves a carefree pregnancy even if that means being met at a different place for support.
