Mama and Baby Doula

Supporting Families through Pregnancy, childbirth, and Postpartum

I feel honored to be chosen to be your doula, and that it is a privilege to attend each special birth. I attend home, birth center, and hospital births to help welcome your beautiful baby into the world. No matter how you birth your baby, I will give you the caring, non judgmental attentive support you deserve. Anyone can benefit from having a birth or postpartum doula for support. Contact me to set up a complimentary meet & greet, learn how I can support you bring your own baby or babies into this beautiful world, and help provide support into the postpartum phase as well

 

My Story

Thank you so much for visiting my website. My name is Shaina, and I hope to help you understand what a doula does, and how it can be a beneficial service for you. As a Doula, I am passionate and privileged to help make these experiences as positive as possible. I have been a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) since 2010. I've loved infants since I was two-years-old, and I'm passionate about helping families bring them into the world and care for them. I am proud to be working diligently on my birth doula certifications with Big Belly Services, PALS, and will do my postpartum certification with NAPS. I’ve also completed a DONA approved TENS unit training, and I’m very excited to be able to offer that pain coping technique to my clients. I’ll be taking a breastfeeding course for doulas on 11/7/19 to be able to further assist my clients with breastfeeding needs. I love spending time with my family, being outdoors especially at the beach, reading, watching movies, and traveling. My personality is calm, compassionate, easy-going, fun, gentle, thoughtful, loving, and kind. I offer my services in the greater Seattle area from downtown Seattle North to Arlington, and the Eastside.

 

Services Offered

Every family is unique, so I offer a variety of doula services personalized for each birthing experience. Regardless of what you choose, we will dive into your beliefs and expectations around labor, birth, and the postpartum phase. Together, we will explore your physical and emotional strengths and limitations to ensure you’re prepared.

Birthing Guidance

Once you notify me that you’ve gone into labor and want me there with you, I will meet you at your chosen birthing place. I will stay with you through the labor, birth, and a couple hours after baby arrives. You will get extra personal support and encouragement throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. I will help with comfort and pain relief, including a TENS unit as an option, answer questions about the labor phases, and help guide you to make educated/informative decisions throughout your labor and birth. I’ll help you follow your birth plan as closely as possible. I'm happy to take photos of this special time. As a Doula, I promise to offer attentive non judgmental support to you and your family before, during, and after birth the way you want to be supported.

Postpartum Support

I take the time to get to know you, your concerns and your needs. I’m always available to contact throughout your journey into parenthood, and will honor your experience, and help it be as positive as possible. Once baby arrives, I’m able to provide you with postpartum services in your home. We will schedule the days and times you’d like me to be there with you. You’ll receive support in learning about newborn behavior & sleep patterns, newborn care, help with bonding between the baby and all family members including older siblings, breastfeeding/lactation support and/or bottle feeding, older sibling support, comfort measures for the healing mom, education on baby gear & equipment,  discuss feelings and promote positive emotional support to reduce postpartum mood disorders, nurture baby while mama takes a much needed nap, shower, or rests, provide resources, meal prep, light house work, accompany you to appointments, and errands. I’m here to support you & your growing family the way you’d like.

Prenatal Visits

After beginning our relationship with a complimentary meet and greet, and you hire me as your doula, I am fully committed to support you and your growing family. I am available by phone, email, and text through your pregnancy as well as after giving birth. I’m happy to meet for  coffee/tea, lunch, or a walk in the park. I will provide you with emotional, physical, informational support, and help guide you to find answers to your questions. I will do 1-2 detailed in person visits with you so we can dive into your birth preferences, strengths & fears. I can work with you on a custom birth plan that fits your preferred style and desires. We will discuss labor/birth positions, comfort & pain relieving measures, and tools you may like to try during labor. I’ll provide resources when needed. We can compare baby gear & equipment so you can decide what will be a best fit for you and your needs, and discuss your postpartum plan.
