Services

At Bright Birth, we know and understand that different families have different needs for their births. Some families may need more in person birthing support, while others might benefit from a brainstorming session to get their plans in place. Below you’ll find our different package options that are tailored to unique needs. Choose which one works best for you! 

Have questions? Contact us at brightbirthdoula@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you and planning your own bright birth!

 


Birth Brainstorm ($75) – In this 2-3 hour session, we will meet in your home to discuss and develop your personalized birth plan. This might include discussing your fears and concerns, assessing how you manage pain or stress, fleshing out your birth goals, and providing you a safe space to ask questions. We can cover pain management techniques, practice positions, or even teach you how to use your new breast pump or other baby gear. After the session, we will send you a customized printable birth plan that you can share with your provider. 

 


Distance Doula Services ($100) – Do you live outside our service area, but you still want to benefit from the insight of birth professionals? Our Distance Doula package provides you with two hours of phone or video chat support, a customized printable birth plan, and unlimited phone/text support starting at 38 weeks of pregnancy and ending one week postpartum. This is a great option for families living in rural areas where doulas aren’t readily available or anyone on a tight budget who would still like doula support.

Basic Birth ($500)– Our basic birth package includes one prenatal visit at 36 weeks, continuous labor and birth support, and one postpartum visit within a week of delivery.

Mother Blessing or Blessingway Services ($200):

A Mother Blessing or Blessingway is an intimate gathering of the friends and loved ones of an expectant mother, in which the mother-to-be is celebrated and honored.

In Birthing From Within, Pam England explains,

A Mother Blessing acknowledges the mother’s new status, and also helps her say goodbye to the world she is leaving behind.

Mary Susan will assist with the planning and act as a guide through the Blessingway. Services include:

  • one planning session
  • customizable invitations
  • a selection of various rituals and activities to choose from including readings and prayers, friendship hand binding, creating a birth bracelet, floral foot bath, flower crown, and more
