Virtual Doula Support

During this pandemic we are still here to make sure you and your family get the support that is needed while making sure everyone stays healthy and follows the CDC recommendations.


Virtual Doula Support is nothing new to us at Balanced Bellies, we have been providing this for 7 years as some of our clients will move and will still want to work with the same Doula they did during their first pregnancy and PostPartum period.
Hourly consults are also perfect for past clients to address unique challenges that may arise in the months or years following the successful implementation of a sleep plan. Common issues include switching to one nap, moving to a new home, introducing solids, or the introduction of a new sibling.

Some doulas with Balanced Bellies are continuing to provide in-person support on a limited basis. Limiting in-person support is a precaution that protects families, doulas, and our wider community. When you are connected with your matched doulas, you can speak to them specifically about the safety measures they are taking and whether they are available to provide support at home, at your birthing location, or both.
