Antepartum doulas generally perform the services of a postpartum doula when the pregnant person is on bed rest during pregnancy. At Birth Quest, we provide antepartum doula services a little differently. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) advises that bed rest is contraindicated in pregnancy, has no benefits and can cause harm. We provide antepartum doula services by providing the same emotional, physical and informational support we provide for our birth doula clients, but we do not attend the birth. Clients choose this package when they want support during pregnancy, but do not desire to have a doula at their birth. This includes three prenatal visits, customized organic herbal tea blends, access to our book and video library, unlimited phone/email/text support, referrals to community resources and one postpartum visit.
Antepartum Doula Package: $300
Antepartum doulas services may be provided by any Birth Quest doula.
