Your parenting philosophy is our parenting philosophy. Third Coast Birth & Baby postpartum doulas ease the transition to welcoming a baby home for the entire family. Our agency provides a full range of postpartum support twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Breast or bottle, one baby or multiples, co-sleeping or crib, you’ll take confidence in knowing our doulas are knowledgeable and skilled in all aspects of your baby’s adjustment outside the womb and your physical and emotional transition during the postpartum period.

We provide compassionate, unwavering support from hospital to home, day and night, for your recovery from childbirth and your baby’s adjustment to life outside the womb.

Placenta Encapsulation

Here at Third Coast Birth & Baby, we’re pleased to offer you the most comprehensive range of options about how you will choose to ingest your placenta as well as where preparation of the placenta will take place.  We have high standards for safety and professionalism and have perfected and streamlined the art and science of placenta encapsulation.

When you book placenta encapsulation with Third Coast Birth & Baby, you’ll receive a kit in the mail that includes a cooler and storage bags for your placenta, detailed storage and handling instructions, and guidelines about when and how you should contact us that labor has begun or your baby is born.  That’s right–we provide everything except the ice you’ll need to keep it cold!
