Birth and Postpartum Doula Support


At NYC Birth Village, we know that families thrive in their transition to parenthood with continuous support. We specialize in a holistic experience by focusing on birth and postpartum doula services combined. We work in doula teams to combine our expertise and give our families more well rounded care.


Prenatal Support

  • From the point of hire, both of us guide you through your pregnancy through email, phone, text as needed.

  • At around 34 weeks, our first prenatal meeting gives us the chance to understand your birth vision and develop your birth preferences.

  • At around 37 weeks, the second prenatal meeting lets us practice comfort techniques for labor and develop your postpartum plan.

Labor Support

  • The doula on call will provide support by phone in early labor and will come when needed to your home or hospital to provide labor support.

  • During labor we may suggest positions, massage, apply counter-pressure, hot and cold packs, encourage hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, breathing techniques, as well as provide encouragement and reassurance to mama and partner.

  • The doula will stay with you about 1-2 hrs post birth to help with the baby’s first latch and continue guidance till the first postpartum visit.

Postpartum Support

  • Depending on the extent of the support you book, during visits we will assist with vaginal/cesarean recovery, healthy meal prep, breastfeeding techniques, review the breast pump/bottle feeding, review soothing techniques, babywearing and baby’s first bath.

  • We’re available through phone/email/text support for reassurance and to answer all the questions that arise in between our visits.
