it's your story

we’ll help you write it your way

Caring, compassionate doula support for birth and beyond.

Having a baby is one of the most memorable times of your life.
From the moment that home pregnancy test points to + …
To the first time you hear your little one’s heartbeat…
To that moment when you get to hold them in your arms…

Your entire experience of pregnancy to parenthood should be memorable, put you and your partner at ease and leave you feeling wrapped in comfort. That first moment of bringing your baby home can be a beautiful experience, but often it is filled with overwhelm and exhaustion. Instead of stress you should feel relief - knowing you have answers available right when you need them. That’s the ideal.

[Our doula] is amazing! She was our rock through labor and was a wonderful support during pregnancy. She is so knowledgeable, caring and calm. I could name a million more adjectives to describe how awesome she is!" -Tera, 1st time mom

our doulas provide

confident and supported births

 

Bringing your baby into the world doesn’t need to be stressful. You can have:

An expert in your corner so you can just be present in the moment.

Comfort and care during the entire labor process, even if it goes well into the night or following day. (It’s called labor for a reason, right?)

An advocate who will make sure your needs are being met, and your desires are being looked after. As highly skilled professionals we can help you navigate the hospital, and can help communicate with your team. Let us do the background work so you and your partner can be present in the moment.

An experienced doula that can help you adjust if things don’t go to plan or circumstances arise. Birth is beautiful, but it can be hard to plan. You won’t need to worry - we’ll be there with you every step of the way. We support you through those challenges, and encourage and guide you through the entire experience. Let us take care of the logistics so you can focus on your growing family.

An experience that will influence everything that comes after in a positive and helpful way.

OF COURSE IT ALL BEGINS BEFORE YOUR BABY ARRIVES.

Absolutely invaluable. I write this from the hospital room in a moment of peace between intense moments, after a long night of labor. Having [Our doula] from Birthing Stone here is one of the best decisions we made. From the perspective of the partner, and this being our first, it's so fantastic to have someone here the whole time who's been through the birthing experience and can help me support my partner as she labors. . . Knowing that there will always be someone here for my wife if someone has to step out is a major relief, and our doula from Birthing Stone is absolutely fantastic, and worth every penny." -Xan first time dad

postpartum care

means peace of mind for parents

Having postpartum doula support means you won’t miss a single minute of bonding and can focus on both welcoming your baby and recovering.

Our postpartum doulas make sure you are well taken care of physically and emotionally. Your doula will be the one person who is looking after your total well-being. Having a baby is a special and emotional time. It’s also a time when there’s a lot going on for both your health and the health of your baby.

Our clients count having postpartum help on their lists of must haves.

After baby arrives you can rely on us during those crucial first moments as a family.  

Education on all the details (feeding, sleep, care of an infant, bathing - and any other questions you have)

The ability to sleep while we’re there taking care of baby

Someone looking out for you - We advocate for you in the best way we can. That might mean helping you find the experts you need, providing education, or just someone to listen.

Family - You love your family. That’s a given. But, with the love of family often comes the drama (don’t worry, it’s everyone, not just you!) Someone’s feelings are hurt because you don’t follow their advice, or they try to do what they think is best for you - derailing your well-thought out plan. That’s where your postpartum doula can help. We are the drama free, opinion free (unless you want advice) solution. Let your family stay family, and we’ll handle your postpartum needs.

In home help that even extends overnight so you can relax and get the rest you need.

Help with all the little details so you get to experience the joy of parenthood (and forget about things like laundry or meal prepping in the beginning)

Help with sibling adjustment

Learning about your baby’s cues as well as newborn specific topics such as the crying curve and how that affects your baby’s sleep patterns.

Questions about baby wearing? Processing your birth story? We’re here for you every step of the way.

SLEEP IS NOT A LONG FORGOTTEN DREAM

Guess what? If your family doesn’t get enough sleep, no one is going to be at their best. Our postpartum doulas are naturally guiding your infant towards better sleep habits from day one, while giving your restorative sleep so that you can feel rested, relaxed and ready to be your best as a parent.

Sleep support while you recover and get settled:

  • Improved relationships with your partner and family when everyone is rested
  • A healthier, happier baby who is getting the proper sleep
  • In person and in home support (there are some things you just can’t learn online)
  • A healthy and happy sleep training method (This is NOT a strict method or a cry it out method. Instead, we customize the plan for your family’s needs)
  • Education for you and your family on the topics that matter most to you. We customize all training - this is not a one size fits all package.
  • Answers for any of your questions along the way

Tiffany was a dream come true...literally. We were struggling with a baby that struggled to sleep, couldn't put herself asleep to save her life and suffered from acid reflux. Tiffany was incredibly supportive. We had her come for 72 hours because we felt like we really needed it, and we did, but when she left our baby was putting herself to sleep, sleeping many more hours a day than ever before and was well on her way to sleeping through the night. That was over a month ago. Our baby only continued to become a better sleeper and Tiffany also made me feel as though she was there to support me when needed. She of course still has reflux, but is sleeping comfortably flat on her back and seldom ever fusses. I highly recommend hiring Tiffany!" -Abigail Hawkins

not one size fits all

our approach is different

Instead of a single doula (who is running around from birth to birth, possibly stressed and overworked) we work in teams so you are always supported. This means your doula is always present when she’s with you.

You choose a doula team that fits the style and dynamic you desire and they will be with you every step of the way.

All of our teams are 100% committed to the work they do. They also each have their own unique specialties and traits, which is why we never assume our teams are one size fits all. Who you ultimately work with is up to you. We support all birth plans and families.

Our doulas are NOT hobbyists - we take our work seriously, and are well-trained and care deeply about what we do. Birth is our business, but it’s also our passion. All of our doulas are experts.  

Whatever your plan, we’ll support it

Water birth? Check. Epidural? You’ve got it.  Home birth? We’ll be there. Prefer the hospital? We’re there too. Breastfeeding? Check. Bottle feeding? Check. Unsure which? We can help! Caring for a newborn? That’s our speciality. Getting your baby to sleep through the night? We can help!

Our clients choose us time and time again because they feel cared for in the hands of experts.

Doctors and midwives refer us because they know our professionalism and expertise means a more comfortable experience for their patients.

Working with Birthing Stone means: 

A team by your side who you can count on to guide you toward a more comfortable labor and delivery, so you can experience the pleasure of your first moments as a parent with less worry and stress.

A feeling of connection and support that has nothing to do with your particular birth plan and everything to do with your family feeling well taken care of and connected.

That unforgettable experience of bringing your baby home for the first time without the worry. This time of your life should feel exhilarating. It’s the one time you’ll bring them home for the first time. You deserve to be present in that moment.
