Bereavement Support & Resources

I’m a certified bereavement doula under Stillbirthday Academy®. I offer pro bono support to families going through miscarriage all the way through neonatal death, this includes full birth doula support. I do attend births last minute. I attend on-call births, inductions, D&C’s, home and hospital miscarriages and c-sections. This page is dedicated to loss families as a place to find support and resources.

For support, please contact me at: yourstrulydoula@gmail.com / 214-713-0099

If you are needing doula support quickly, please call me. If it is not a situation that needs immediate attendance, please send me an email. I check my emails frequently and it will give me a chance to read through your situation and have a better idea of how to help you before we talk on the phone. Depending on the urgency of the situation, the prenatal portion of my doula support can vary, but below is a list of everything it could include.

Full doula support includes the following:

– An in-person consultation

– A prenatal visit in your home

– Your birth

– A postpartum visit in your home

– On-call period of 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your expected delivery date if you’re being induced or due date

– Emails, calls, texts and help with resources as needed
