PLANNING YOUR FOURTH TRIMESTER & BEYOND
COMMUNITY CARE WORKSHOP
5-WEEKS
$20 INVESTMENT

Planning with Community in Community

 

This class is intended for the primary caretaker. Whether you are pregnant, or expecting a child through surrogacy, adoption or fostering - this class is for you.


We will meet virtually on Zoom once a week for this 5-week series that dives deep into your upcoming postpartum period, often called the fourth trimester, and especially the first forty days after the birth of your baby. 

The postpartum period is incredibly important and demanding, with most of the primary caretaker's time being devoted to baby, and self care needs.

We will talk about what self care means to you and what you need to function and stay healthy holistically (mind, body, spirit).

We will be creating your postpartum care plan, and identify where you will foresee needing help and calling your community into action to support you - now. 

1 in 4 women will experience a postpartum mood disorder. We will take time to do a risk assessment, and identify areas where we can help our future selves out by creating a plan and having resources ready to go ahead of time. 

Whether this is your first baby or third - you still need a plan!

We purposely max the class out at 6 caretakers to create a more intimate environment. As each peer in your group has their baby, we will come back together as a group and offer her one support call. Three months after the last baby in the group is born, we will reconvene once more and talk about and share our experiences. 

Our last class in the series will feature a guest speaker to share about reproductive rights and more. 

Our next series starts February 1st - Mondays, 6-7pm (MST)

Can't make the workshop work with your schedule but are still interested in a Postpartum Care Plan? We will work one-on-one with you to build your plan for $100.

We are here to be with you as you navigate the prenatal journey. This may involve attending your prenatal doctor or midwife visits and being available via phone/text/email for any questions that may come up. 


We would be honored to be apart of your birth team and be there along side you as you labor and bring your baby into the outside world. We work together to understand your birth and labor goals, and we will be your advocate with the medical staff and yourself. If you have a planned cesarean or an emergency, we will be there to be with you if your partner needs to be with the baby.

We love to take as many photos and videos as you would like and are comfortable with, to help forever document these amazing moments as baby makes their way into the world.

PAYING FOR SERVICES

Every newborn caretaker who wishes to have a doula shall have one

Babies are expensive! It seems like one cost after another. Doulas are well worth the investment: Increased self esteem, lowered stress levels, someone to help with every day tasks that ARE daunting when you have a new baby. When a doula is involved, studies have shown vast benefits, including but not limited to, a smoother and more enjoyable labor and birth experience, and by 6 weeks postpartum, lower levels of depression.

Doulas are a covered expense using Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and/or Health Savings Accounts (HSA).


If you wish to pay for doula services using your FSA and/or HSA, you will need to get a letter from your doctor stating you need doula care for medically necessary reasons, in this case the treatment of the medical condition - pregnancy and childbirth. Bare with us here, just navigating the red tape!

You can also get reimbursed for doula services from your HSA and/or FSA account. First we'll invoice and you'll pay for our services. You'll then need to fill out a Letter of Medical Necessity form through your HSA/FSA portal - or you can search online for a template - your medical provider will need to sign the form confirming you have the medical condition of pregnancy. Lastly, file your doula invoice and Letter of Medical Necessity form through your HSA/FSA and get reimbursed!

It's a bit cumbersome, but totally worth the effort to take advantage of your HSA and/or FSA in this capacity. Feel free to reach out if you have questions, as we're happy to help you through the steps. 

Another option is having a doula fund that your baby shower attendees, coworkers, friends and/or family can contribute to. Doula crowd funding! We are are here for it! Gift certificates are also available. 

If you choose to do both prenatal and postpartum services with us, we will discount your total package 10%.

If you choose to take our 5-week postpartum planning virtual workshop, we will deduct the cost of the workshop if you end up booking a prenatal or postnatal doula package with us. 

Scholarships available to people who identify as non-white, low income and/or people experiencing financial hardship.

Please reach out so we may understand your needs and quote the right package for you.
