My name is Virginia!
I provide Doula Services, Childbirth Classes, and Breastfeeding Support to families in Northeast and Central Pennsylvania. I serve clients within 1 1/2 hours from my home in Berwick. I travel to doula clients in Williamsport, Wilkes Barre, Jersey Shore, Lewisburg, Selinsgrove, Bloomsburg, Scranton. Milton, Honesdale, Hazleton, Drums, Nescopeck, Back Mountain area and more!
Now offering virtual live Lamaze Healthy Birthing classes. Breastfeeding support, prenatal meetings, and labor support can be in person or virtual. (currently area hospitals have excluded doulas from supporting clients in hospital. I encourage you to contact your care providers and request this be changed. DONA International has this letter to share with care providers and hospital administrators expressing the importance of in person labor support). I am staying home and taking all precautions to keep myself healthy and able to serve my clients.
As a doula, I serve women and their partners by providing support during pregnancy, labor, birth, and beyond! I support you wherever you choose to give birth – hospital, birth center or home. When you go into labor, I arrive when you need me and stay until after the baby is born and everyone is fed and resting – no matter how long that takes!
In order to help you and your partner prepare for birth, I offer Lamaze Healthy Birthing classes. You will have lots of tools in your toolkit when the classes are done! Taking a group class is also a great opportunity to meet other expectant couples; I also offer private classes for your convenience.
Sometimes women have issues or concerns about breastfeeding. I see moms privately in their home for a postpartum breastfeeding consult. It is so much better to have someone come to you than to have to return to the hospital or office to see someone!
Not sure if you live within my service area? Have questions? Contact me and let’s talk! I offer a free in-person meeting so we can meet and talk about my services and any questions you may have.
