Support During Pregnancy
There are so many unknowns as you enter into pregnancy, birth and parenthood. Working with a doula can help you feel more confident and better prepared as you go into this once-in-a-lifetime experience. From prenatal planning, to round the clock text, phone and email support, to birth support and beyond... options are available as part of a package, or a la carte.
You may have a supportive partner, family member, friend, etc.; however hiring a skilled and experienced doula to be part of your team is a wise move. Research is clear on this: women who use doulas to support their birth achieve better outcomes. Per a 2017 Cochrane review published by Bohren et al., doula supported women experienced a significant decrease in the use of Pitocin, risk of C-section, and dissatisfaction with the birth experience. Plus, their labors were shorter!
From breastfeeding issues, to soothing their fussy baby-- many new parents find they feel unprepared to address concerns that come up after baby comes home. Align offers in-home lactation support, round the clock text, phone and email support, placenta encapsulation services as well as professional helping hands you can trust when you need them most. Options available both as part of a birth doula package, or a la carte.
