Doula Elizabeth Porter

"Look: no hands" demonstration of how to wear your baby.

Consultation Services

Pregnancy, Labor/Birth, Postpartum, Infant-care


Consulting is a great option for families who may not want the full commitment of a doula but would like one or two sessions to address questions and concerns. We can discuss birthing options, how to plan and facilitate  your support systems, explore pain coping strategies, how you'd like to negotiate the hospital environment, postpartum recovery, basic breastfeeding support and questions (I am not a lactation consultant), and newborn care and general parenting concerns and issues. I can also help you to evaluate your need for and find appropriate resources in your community.

I will come to your home for this service.

$100 p/h (2 hour minimum)

Elizabeth told us things that only a Doula would 1. Know, and 2. Know better. Believe me, we wouldn't have known a couple of things if it were not for Elizabeth's experience. I even brought up a few interactions I had with staff previous to my induction and Elizabeth was able to explain WHY they probably said what they said and how to deal with it emotionally.  -Rachel
