Doula Amber

How To Be Your Own Doula-

Can’t afford a doula but want the empowerment of birth coaching!? Want to ROCK your birth within the intimacy of just you and your partner?! Here’s my full “4-Session Doula Plan” that I guide my Doula clients through, laid out step by step with resource links, coping tools & techniques, and homework to educate & empower! I believe this information should be FREE for everyone!


Prenatal Birth Coaching – Birth Doula Package

This option is for those who would like access to private in-person training through my “4-Session Doula Plan,” but who would ultimately would prefer the actual birth experience to stay between just them and their birth partner. Each session is two-hours in length and I can come to you for daytime or evening sessions depending on what works best for your schedule. One invaluable perk of my in-person training is the hands-on demonstration through each of the coping tools & techniques as well as access to my personal collection of tools (sanitized & prepped) & therapeutic grade essential oils for use in your birth. This rental alone is over a $400 value. I also offer every pregnant mama (because you deserve it!) a “Congrats Mama Survival Basket” FREE upon every Interview! The basket includes a Warren’s Post Bone Broth (made locally by another amazing mama friend and her husband!), Ginger Chews to help with nausea, a Clary Sage essential oil roller to promote balanced pregnancy hormones, and dark chocolate for the indulgence and the antioxidants 🙌🏼

Includes initial interview w/ “Congrats Mama Survival Basket”
