Birth Doula Support Services
My3Doulas offers a custom doula program of continuous physical, emotional and informational support to mothers and families before, during and long after the childbirth process.
With proven experience, credentials and satisfied referrals, we are experts in the physiological and emotional aspects of childbirth. Our objective is to foster a positive and memorable experience for mom, baby, dad, and any participating support members.
Fundamentally, our responsibility is to facilitate communication between mom, her partner, and medical staff. With applicable experience and insight, we can explain in simple terms what is happening during the birthing process and empower the woman to make informed decisions based on her unique birthing plan. A team of two doulas, we are responsive 24/7 thoughout the greater Sacramento area.
Amy DeAscentis and Ruth Lundsten are our primary birth doulas. Birth doula services include one to two prenatal appointments, help creating your birth plan, unrestricted phone support, continuous hands-on support during labor and birth through first latch at breast, birth story, and a postpartum visit, scheduled according to your needs. Contact Amy or Ruth with further questions.
Postpartum Doula Services
Janet Carroll, our primary postpartum doula and baby nurse, is now serving both Northern and Southern California. She offers postpartum care and support on an "as agreed" basis, ranging from three to twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week.
