Welcome and congratulations on the upcoming birth of your baby! My name is Haylee and I'm so excited to support you on your birth journey.
I was born and raised in Idaho and have lived in Boise for the last 9 years. My experiences birthing my own three children has cemented my passion for helping families make informed choices and have a positive birth experience.
I love working with expectant mothers and their families to help them navigate the birth and labor process. I look at each new birth as a unique experience and in return I provide mothers with the encouragement and motivation they need.

Consultation: Schedule your free consultation so we can get to now each other better! This is your time to ask any questions about doula support and how it looks like in practice.
Booking: Once you decide you'd like to hire me we will send you your digital contract and invoice. Simply pay the down payment to reserve your spot and we will go ahead and schedule our first prenatal visit.
Prenatal Meeting #1: Within the comfort of your own home, we will discuss your birth preferences and answer any questions. This is a good time to clarify how you're really feeling about labor and birth and what your birth vision is. This meeting occurs around week 30-32 of your pregnancy
Prenatal Meeting #2: At around 36 weeks we will meet again at your home for a Birth Rehearsal where we will practice comfort measures and birth positions. I will walk you and your partner through the birth process and make sure your partner feels confident in supporting you! If you are a hypnobirthing client, we will practice all of the wonderful techniques that you have been learning.
Birth: From the time you call, you have unlimited access to doula support until you're settled in after delivery (around 2 hours post-delivery). I will join you at home or your place of birth and help you have the birth of your dreams.
Postpartum Visit: Within the first two weeks, I will come to your home to check in on your wellbeing. Ask any questions about infant feeding, sleeping schedules, or just take the time to debrief your birth and discuss this new world of motherhood.
