Collapsible content

What technology do I need for virtual sessions?

For virtual sessions, you will need a reliable internet connection and a device such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a webcam and microphone. We will use video conferencing platforms like Zoom or whatsApp to connect and communicate.

How does communication work during labor?

During our prenatal sessions, we will establish a communication plan based on your preferences. This may include regular video calls, phone calls, or messaging through a secure platform. We will stay connected to provide continuous support, guidance, and reassurance throughout your labor.

Can I have a virtual doula if I'm planning a hospital birth?

Absolutely! Virtual doula services are suitable for all birth settings, including hospital births. Even if I can't physically be present in the delivery room, I will provide virtual support, guidance, and advocacy to help you navigate your hospital birth experience with confidence.

Are virtual doula services as effective as in-person support?

Virtual doula services have been shown to be highly effective in providing support and guidance during pregnancy and birth. While in-person support offers physical presence, virtual doula services offer the advantage of flexibility, accessibility, and continuous communication. Through video calls, messaging, and virtual sessions, I will provide the same level of care, knowledge, and emotional support as an in-person doula.

Can I add additional sessions or consultations to the virtual doula package if needed?

Yes, additional sessions or consultations can be added to the virtual doula package based on your needs. We can discuss your specific requirements and customize the package to ensure it aligns with your preferences and provides the support you desire.
