Full-Spectrum Pregnancy Support
What does "full-spectrum" mean? The term full-spectrum is used to describe care-taking work that focuses on any and all pregnancy outcomes. This term comes from a radical approach to doula / support work, with the awareness that our experiences and needs vary and that they are all deserving of space and support.
Possible pregnancy outcomes include, but are not limited to: birth, abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth, adoption, and surrogacy. The types of support that full spectrum doulas offer is emotional, physical, spiritual, and logistical support, to make the people involved in this pregnancy feel as educated, advocated for, and cared for. Care can be provided prenatally, before, during, and after procedures, postpartum, and in hospitals, birth centers, clinics, and homes.
There is no limit to the scope of care!
As your care-provider, I pull on my knowledge from experience and trainings. I can be present with you at any state of your pregnancy, offering support to you and your partner(s). As your care-taker, though, my main focus is on you and your needs.
My services vary in duration, type, and cost based on the type(s) of support that are needed for a pregnancy. Contact me for a consult and we can decide together what feels best!
* I am aware of the weight that the term "doula" holds for individuals, and it is a term that I am in the process of transitioning out of my lexicon. Feel free to refer to me as a pregnancy support person, or use any other term that feels safer and more inclusive for your history and lived experience.
