BRAIDED BIRTH DOULA

 

DOULA


As a certified Doula since January of 2018, I feel honored to be able to share my knowledge with expecting mothers and fathers in the central Ohio area. I am passionate about birth, postpartum and motherhood in general. I love to hold space for my clients and come alongside their vision for their birth experience. Outside of birth, i love spending time with my husband and 3 beautiful children, camping and gardening.

SUPPORT SERVICES

How I Assist

Untitled

PRENATAL VISITS

I have designed prenatal visits to be easy, lighthearted and informative. Each meeting we chat about your pregnancy goals and plans. At these meetings we will:
•Create a detailed birth plan •Discuss different resources to help you both in pregnancy/labor• Plan for postpartum
I encourage spouses to be involved in these meetings if applicable, i love showing partners how to be supportive during labor and delivery. 

BIRTH SUPPORT

From 36 weeks to the onset of labor I’m on call and at your disposal. Once labor begins and you want my physical support i will be on my way and ready to utilize tools in my birth bag to help with physical discomfort during labor. I encourage partners to be involved and i help them with support techniques as well. I generally stay until about 1 hour after baby is born. I can help establish first latch too if you plan to breastfeed.

POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

Pregnancy discomforts and birth get so much attention when a new mother announces she’s expecting. What ISN’T talked about enough is postpartum! Your whole life changes with each and every baby. I love empowering moms to reach out for support after birth. My role as a postpartum doula is to ensure you get the best information and care possible. No matter when you need me, I will be there offering support. I’ve had moms use my PP service to do everything from: hold baby while she showers, clean her home for her,  do her dishes/laundry, entertain her older children while she bonds with baby and so much more.  I have training and experience in breastfeeding, if you desire help in that area as well. 

PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION

I offer placenta encapsulation to my clients as an additional service or an individual service. The process is simple, i pick up the placenta after birth and then clean, steam and dehydrate the placenta. Once dehydrated i add herbs and other beneficial elements and grind them into powder. I encapsulate the powder into capsules for mother to consume and return the pills to her within 48 hours. Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation:

  • Increased release of the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to normal size and encourages bonding with the infant

  • Increase in CRH, a stress-reducing hormone

  • A decrease in post-partum depression levels

  • Restoration of iron levels in the blood

  • Increase in milk production

Haley got me through my pregnancy and my horrible hospital experience. Any and all of my questions we answered and she really helped me know what to expect she gave me advice and information I never thought I would need. I will absolutely be having her again for the rest of my children and I will always tell people about the benefits that I experienced when I had her. 10/10 recommend! -Hannah H

Honestly, I’m not really sure where to start.. Because of Haley, I was able to have the labor/birth experience I desired. With it being my first, it’s easy to be fearful because you don’t know what to expect, but Haley helped me feel empowered the whole entire time. She was a HUGE advocate for me before, during, and after labor. Haley made sure that she spoke life into me when I was feeling doubt or worry at our earlier appointments. Also, throughout labor she was never absent. She was always speaking encouraging words over me and promoted many intimate moments between my husband and I during it. She also made sure they did not try to go against my wishes at the hospital, which I am very grateful for. Even after labor, she has checked in with me multiple times. Haley has so much wisdom when it comes to birth but most importantly she has the passion and compassion for others to experience an empowering birth just the way they want. So beyond grateful for her and my amazing supernatural birth experience! Without her, this wouldn’t have been possible.

I grew up with Haley and I always knew this is what she wanted to do. She was hands down the best doula for my first pregnancy. She helped me through my intense back labor, prayed over me and helped calm me down. She answered every question I had. She ended up encapsulating my placenta too and it was the best decision and I recommended it for everyone. She is definitely the best doula and I recommended her to everyone ❤️☺️ -Ashton L

Haley is amazing she wasn’t even my doula. With my last pregnancy I was miserable at the end she came to my house and taught me some stretches to help ease the pain and timed my contractions. We ended up having him that next morning super early. Thank you Haley we love you! ❤️ -Danielle M
