Services

Free Consultation 

Contact Ramey Birth Doula Services to schedule a time to meet. You can "interview" our team  and I will check to see if we are available for your "due date." A contract will be provided for you to read over and sign. All fees are discussed and payment arrangements are made that day. This can also be done online, if you wish.

 

We require a non- refundable deposit to hold your space in the calendar for your due date.  We have a limit to the amount of clients we can take on per month. This is due, in part, to our 24/7 on call schedule and the unknown nature of baby's arrival.

Prenatal Visit

During these visits we will discuss your health history, your options for birth and comfort measures for labor.

 

I will come to you at home or a reasonable location agreed upon. Prenatal appts usually last one hour.

 

You can purchase more Prenatal visits at $50 a session. 

As a Doula, I  Do Not:

Perform any clinical tasks

Blood pressure monitoring, vaginal exams or "checks", fetal heart tones

or other labs are not in our scope and practice.

 

Make decisions for you 

We provide you with the information and help you prepare for

your birth. We will assist you in making a birth plan. What works

for one family might not work for another. YOU decide what

is best.

Give Medical Advice

My experience is a valuable part of your package. We can

discuss common practices of the hospital of choice. You and

your partner will learn to find your voices so that you can speak for yourselves. I can suggest position changes, provide comfort measures and other options that might be helpful during labor. Medical decisions are left to you, your partner and the staff. 

Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience

 

Postpartum follow-up visit 

The next contact I make after your baby's birthday is within

48 hours. This is by phone or in person, at home or in

the hospital. We then schedule a follow-up visit in the next few days or weeks where I will come to your home.

This visit can last up to two hours or as needed.

I am available to you by text, phone, or email during the first six weeks after baby is born.

We will discuss your birth and address any problems you might be having. We will talk babies, breasfteeding, diapers, postpartum depression, rest, newborn care, and other topics you might be interested in.

 

Additional PP packages can be purchased for more time for mom. Various blocks of time are scheduled to help mom recover her strength and settle into her new role (again) as mother.

Community Referrals

I keep names and contact info for many of the healthcare providers in this area. If you should need help with any referrals to agencies in nearby Richmond, VA, Chester, Hopewell, Colonial Heights, Peterburg or the military base at Ft. Lee, VA  I might be able to help you with that also. Just ask!
