I'm on call! 

What this entails... I enter an "on-call" status for my birth doula clients starting two weeks before their due date until two weeks after. During this period, I remain within the local area and am available at any time, day or night. At any moment during this on-call duration, the expecting parent might call, informing me of their labor, and requesting my assistance.

What does this mean for you? If I receive a call from a birth doula client that coincides with your scheduled appointment, rest assured, I will notify you promptly. In such cases, we'll work together to reschedule your session to accommodate the needs of the laboring client. This adjustment might occur the day before, the day of, or even during your scheduled time.

I kindly request my birth doula clients to provide 1-2 hours notice whenever possible. However, the unpredictable nature of labor may require me to respond swiftly, sometimes leaving immediately to offer support.

Acknowledging that I uphold a 24-hour cancellation policy for my clients, during the on-call period, this serves as your extended notice. It's a heads-up that, due to the dynamic nature of birth, there's a possibility of last-minute changes to your appointment. While it doesn't guarantee a cancellation, it's a precautionary measure to keep you informed.

Your understanding during this time is greatly appreciated! If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to reach out.
