Skyler is a DONA trained birth doula here in the Treasure Valley & is actively pursuing certification! Skyler was born & raised in the state of California where she worked with mental health & substance abuse clients as she continued her education in Psychology, in hopes of becoming a therapist one day. Life took her a different route, and found herself to be a proud resident of Idaho, and a wonderful addition to the doula community! Skyler has a true desire for serving others, especially expecting parents. She is kind hearted, passionate & ready to support you in any way she can!
Hey there, I am so glad you’re here! My name is Skyler, I am a DONA trained Birth Doula & the proud owner of Simply Serenity Birth!
Serving others is the true desire of my heart. When I was introduced to the role of a birth doula, in just a few short months, I became a doula myself! Supporting expecting families quickly became my passion. I love all things pregnancy, birth & beyond. I believe childbirth is a miracle & the most precious moments in life! It is an honor to be a part of such an Intimate space & time. In return for your trust, I promise my presence and ultimate support. Whether you choose a home birth, hospital birth, birth center, medicated, unmedicated, spiritually or non-spiritually led birth (the list goes on)… I will support YOU & all of YOUR choices. I am confident that my support will allow you & your partner to achieve a satisfying birth experience that is empowering & full of joy!
I’d love to bring the sunshine to your birth! ☼
DONA workshop July 2018
Birth Fee: ($800)
At this time, you will be able to ask all of your questions & get to know me! The goal of this initial consultation is for you to make sure I am a good fit for you & your partner! So yes, ask all of your important questions & be selective, that’s okay! It is important to have a connection & feel safe with your doula. This consultation can be done in person at a local coffee shop or even via video call, entirely up to you!
During this visit we will start to build our connection! Ideally, both mamma & partner will be present for this visit, and we will go over laboring positions, ways you can use your home for laboring, ways your partner & I can best support you, the basic stages of labor & birth, go over all your options, alternatives, risks & benefits, we then will go over all of your birth desires, fears & concerns & create your ideal birth plan. Essentially we gear you up with everything you will need to achieve a satisfying birth experience (and so much more!)
I will be on call at your 37 week mark, readily available for your birth! At your birth I will create a very safe, calming environment for you & your partner to bring your bundle of joy into this world, confidently & comfortably! I will provide hands-on support, physically, emotionally and maybe even spiritually. I will come equipped with many resources & tools for laboring and delivery. My goal is to orchestrate the best support system with all persons attending your birth, in order for you to achieve a birth that is peaceful & empowering! (and so much more!)
During this visit we will debrief! We will talk through your birth experience, everything you loved and maybe things you did not. If you are needing breastfeeding support, a nap, a shower, or even a shoulder to cry on, I will be there for all your needs at this time! I also will provide postpartum resources and referrals for you in case of need. (and so much more!)
Child Care Visits:
This service allows for a break, simply a break! I will provide extensive support to you & your partner (prenatally or postpartum) by spending time with your child/children as your doula. I will come to your home equipped with fun activities and a creative mind to keep your child/children entertained and maybe even fed, while you either spend special bonding time with your newly born child or even alone time for you and your partner as a couple (etc). This service can be added to any package at an hourly rate of $45 and is included in the ULTIMATE package.
(I have 7+ years of child care experience & CPR certified)
