FAQ

A doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical, and informational support to new and expectant parents before, during, and after birth and early postpartum.

Your doula will be a voice of encouragement and a source of relief, providing tools for pain management, relaxation, comfort techniques, reflexology, affirmations, and so much more to help you have less stress and a more satisfying birth experience.

Our team of trained and certified labor doulas are ready to support you in any location. We will meet you wherever you’d like to birth your baby. We have team members that are experienced in home births, hospital births and local birthing centers. Just let us know your preference and we will be ready to support you.

Sunnyside Up is staffed with doulas, lactation counselors and mental health therapists. We understand the importance of having midwifery care and have partnered with local midwives. Contact us if you would like assistance in getting midwifery support.

Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy, our goal is to have 2 parental meetings to discuss your needs and expectations during labor, address any concerns you may have about your pregnancy, provide resources and create a birth plan allowing you to share your birth preferences with your medical team.

Your doula will stay with you for up to two hours after birth to assist with breastfeeding and assisting you with getting as comfortable as possible after birth. We offer a comprehensive 12-week postpartum program called Be Well at Home that will give you access to a postpartum doula, a lactation specialist if you choose to breastfeed, and a mental health therapist to help navigate postpartum emotions.
