LABOR AND BIRTH DOULAS
Our doulas are multi-skilled birth experts with years of experience in Maternal-Infant Health. Our approach is to educate pregnant individuals and couples about the importance of informed consent, Maternal-Infant Mortality Rates, and their rights as birthing individuals. Families receive education and information from one of our experienced doulas through an Evidence-Based Curriculum, including mental, physical, and emotional support. Our doulas are experts at supporting black pregnant individuals and couples, BIPOC, LBGTQ, and IVF/Surrogates. We understand how nerve-wracking and exciting parenthood can be for you and your family. Allow our doula-family to support you throughout your pregnancy and birthing journey!
Our Lactation Consultants are the EXPERTS of breastfeeding and milk production. Enjoy compassionate and professional Lactation and Breastfeeding support before, during, and after birth. We strive to address the black breastfeeding disparities within our communities, offer guidance and reassurance, and help birthing people who desire a long healthy breastfeeding journey.
The "Fourth Trimester Experts" are an essential part of the team. They are knowledgable on how to provide non-judgmental support, teach evidence-based information related to postpartum recovery and transition, and recognize the early signs and symptoms of postpartum depression, baby blues, and postpartum preeclampsia. Our experienced postpartum doulas offer support immediately after birth through the baby's first year.
DMV Birth Doulas, LLC has partnered with DMV Doula Institute to provide informative, evidence-based childbirth education classes. Our childbirth education classes are geared towards understanding the laboring process, recognizing the onsets of labor, how to have a successful natural birth, how to have a successful medicated birth, preparing for birth at home, at a hospital, or birth center and and understanding the risks, benefits, and alternatives of every common pregnancy diagnosis and medical intervention. Sessions take place once a month, virtual/LIVE and In-person. Childbirth Education is offered inside all birth doula packages and is available for A La Carte.
`` Everything happened so fast but I’m happy I prepared through yoga , working out and hiring Nikita (my doula) for the transition. I really think a doula is 100% necessary after my birthing experience. I really wanted an unmedicated birth and she taught me early on how laboring at home could assist with that .
We hired Nikita as our birth and postpartum doula. She did our three prenatal sessions, (and even added an addition session to ensure I was prepared while away on vacation), got my spouse and family engaged with knowledge and vital information necessary to prepare for labor and birth. She was available via call if I had any questions or concerns throughout my pregnancy, labor, and birth. She was great! She ensured I had the tools and support for childbirth. Thanks Nikita!
We have had an amazing experience with Nikita thus far. It was very easy connecting with her for a consultation and once we decided we wanted to have her be a part of our team she had been nothing but attentive and helpful. In addition, the price of her services are very reasonable. We look forward to the next couple of weeks as we prepare as a team for the arrival of our child!
