How is “Oh $#!@, I need a doula!”™ different than our Doula Duos™ offering?
This is the last minute, you waited (almost) too long doula service. To qualify for this you will need to be 37+ weeks pregnant.
With this offering, we choose the doula for you and you get one doula, not two. The doula who attends your birth will be one of our professional team and she will likely also attend Doula Duos™ births as well as “Oh $#!@, I need a doula!”™ births. We will choose her based on scheduling availability. We cannot guarantee we will have someone for you, but we will do our best.
If time permits, a face-to-face meeting with your doula is preferred and encouraged. However, we can’t guarantee a face-to-face meeting with your doula prior to the start of labor if you call us very close to your due date. You will have had a chance to speak to her over the phone or via Skype at least once, if not a number of times before your birth. This ensures you and your “Oh $#!@, I need a doula!”™ are on the same page and she knows how to best support you and your partner during labor and birth.
*Please do not call us to schedule this service if you are already in labor. We do need at least a few days notice.
