long-distance doula services

What is a long-distance doula?

My services as “long-distance” doula are a solution for birthing people & families who may desire the education, emotional support, and assistance of a doula during pregnancy and birth, but don’t want to or can’t hire a doula to be physically present. Long-Distance Doula services may be the right choice for you if you lack access to a doula in your local community, you desire privacy during your labor & delivery but would still like guidance & support in organizing, learning, and preparing for birth, or maybe you would really like for me to be your doula, but I live too far away!

As your Long-Distance Doula, I will be happy to provide you with my attention & support to prepare you for your pregnancy & birth, including:

  • 2 prenatal visits & 2 postpartum sessions via Skype/FaceTime

  • Assistance writing birth plan & postpartum plan

  • Evidence-based education on topics such as pain management, interventions, breastfeeding & more

  • Constant text/email support throughout your pregnancy

  • Phone support during your birth (if desired)

  • Assistance finding local resources you may need to support you in having your best pregnancy & birth experience.

The cost for Long-Distance Doula services is $75.

If you’d like to learn more or book me as your doula, please feel welcome to reach out with an email to kelsi@doulakelsi.com. I’d love to chat with you!
