Group or private classes, in person or virtual, that cover everything from comfort measures to newborn basics, the science of childbirth to crash courses for partners.
Maybe you want to have fewer hospital interventions during labor and delivery. Or maybe you want someone to translate medical jargon into understandable terms. Or maybe you want your partner present, but know you’ll need more hands-on support and attention than one person can provide. Or maybe you want the calm energy and empowering wisdom of someone who’s watched dozens of babies make their debut into the world—and is committed to being by your side during the entirety of your baby’s birth. A birth doula can provide all of those things, and so much more.
Placenta eating (aka placentophagy) has been done for centuries, and many animals have a powerful, natural instinct to eat their placenta after giving birth. Many of our clients report that doing so can help with energy and stabilize moods. Over nearly 10 years, our team has perfected the process of placenta encapsulation, from clear instructions to the nurse for post-delivery packaging to sterilizing and preparing the capsules.
Our Unique Team Model
The last thing you need when you’re in labor is added worry about your care team. What if your doula is sick or out of town? What if she’s just finishing up another birth and hasn’t slept in days? What if two of her clients are in labor at exactly the same time?
At Third Coast Birth + Baby, we’ve put those fears to rest—for good. Instead of pairing parents with individual doulas (and assigning “back-ups” that they might never meet in person), we’ve created a unique team model. You’ll be paired with a trio of doulas, who are comfortable and experienced working together, who are well-versed in sharing information and brainstorming solutions, and who can step in seamlessly whatever time of day or night you need support.
That means we’re able to guarantee your doula will arrive rested and ready to support you, and she’ll be fully present for the journey ahead. Because this is a big moment ahead of you, and we’re here to make it easier.
