THE STORY:

Our little man will be here in just a few short months! As his birth approaches, we have spent a lot of time talking about our plans and expectations for our labor and delivery and the experience that we would like to have surrounding this life changing event. Of course, we want everything to go smoothly but we also have some other hopes for our experience as well. We are hoping to have little or no medical interventions, unless needed for the safety of Mommy or Baby.  We have committed to doing our part in helping this happen. We have taken many classes (and still have many more to go) on how to help progress labor without intervention and one thing that keeps being suggested is having a doula. A Doula is a woman who is trained in assisting another woman before, during and after childbirth. This definition is very basic, and each doula and their services are based on the needs of each individual client. They offer everything from labor massage, breastfeeding support, and errand running after the baby is born, to cooking meals and helping prepare the nursery.  Plus, let's be honest here, JD and I have no clue what we are doing, so any support from a trained professional will be welcomed :) Because of the amazing services and flexibility of a doula, their services are not cheap. They typically run anywhere from $600-$1250, depending on the services offered. We have found a doula that we love, and her services are $850. Side note- she owns a 4D ultrasound business, so we would get a 4D ultrasound included in this package, which would be fun :) we have been so fortunate to have many friends and family give us gifts and supplies to ready us for the arrival of little Lincoln, but his arrival will only happen once, and we want it to be the amazing and memorable experience that we have pictured in our minds. If you feel like you would like to support us in this way, rather than sending a gift, please feel free to contribute through this site. If you have any other questions about what a doula does, or about our birth plan, just ask! We love talking about it :) We love you all very much, and we are so grateful to have such wonderful friends and family to share this experience with.
