Things do look a bit different right now due to the virus, however Karen is still continuing to serve clients during this time. Some clients are choosing out of hospital births or going to hospitals where doulas continue to be regarded as an essential part of the birth team. For clients birthing at hospitals where doulas are not currently allowed, Karen can discuss how she can still help you achieve your birth goals and have a better birth even if she cannot be physically present with you in the hospital. Please contact Karen for details.
All of Karen's doula clients will receive breastfeeding support at the time of birth and at a follow-up postpartum visit if desired. This is included in the fee for doula services. For additional support, pricing depends on whether you come to Karen or she makes a home visit as well as travel distance, please contact Karen for details here. Urgent, weekend and night services are available for an additional fee. Karen is able to provide FREE breastfeeding support during Carolina Moms Unite monthly mom-to-mom support group meetings.
Carolina Moms Unite (free monthly moms meetings)
Contact Karen here to find out when the next meeting will be. *Currently on hold due to the virus until we are cleared for group meetings.* Carolina Moms Unite is a wonderful, encouraging and enjoyable group of moms and moms-to-be. Many moms join the monthly group meetings to ask questions, share wisdom and encourage one another on the hard and fruitful journey of motherhood. Anyone is welcome and you are encouraged to bring your friends. Babies and toddlers stay with their moms and older children may play in another room, supervised by Karen's 16 year old daughter. Meetings are free of charge and meet at Karen's home. Feel free to bring a snack to share if you'd like (not required). Some of the topics we discuss include: babywearing, breastfeeding, birth options, parenting different age groups, homeschooling and much more. Treat meetings like a buffet, take what you like and leave the rest behind. We honor each mother and respect that we all have differing opinions and are all doing the best we can to raise our children well.
