Birth and Postpartum Doula Services

Nurturing support for one of the biggest

moments of your life.

Hi there!

You must have heard of the benefits of hiring birth and postpartum doulas to support your experience, and are curious to learn more about how to work with one, what we offer, and how we can help you have a great experience.

You’ve come to the right place!

My team of doulas are personally trained and mentored by me, a veteran doula and doula trainer.

Keep scrolling to learn more about me and the dedicated doulas who work with me, and best of all, the ways we can support you!

Hi, I’m Zoë! I spearhead a fantastic

group doula practice.

As you may have learned elsewhere on my site, I’m Zoë Etkin, Memphis’s pregnancy, birth, and new parenthood expert. I’m here to help guide you through this incredible journey, and help you get all the support you need along the way. I train and mentor doulas in the Memphis area, and those doulas work together with me as a team/group practice. We work this way because it gives our clients a better experience, and it allows our doulas to avoid client-overload and burn out. It’s taken me nearly a decade to create this kind of doula practice, and I am so pleased with how we are serving Memphis as a close-knit group.

My team is made up of a diverse group of birth and postpartum doulas who all bring unique strengths and passions to their individual practices. I have had the pleasure of training and mentoring each one, so that their work with our clientele reflects the values and ethos of the work I have been doing for the past ten years.

Doula-Client Matchmaking

If you are here, you are most likely expecting, or have possibly just given birth.

You are here because you seek support, education, and guidance that extends and enhances the care you receive from your doctor, midwife, or pediatrician.

You are here because you know that birth and the postpartum period are profound human experiences that deserve reverence, love, joy, and nurturance.

You may also be here because you are looking for someone to advocate for you and your partner before, during, and after childbirth.

Whatever brings you here, welcome! We would be so honored to be a part of your story.

We want to learn all about you, what you are looking for from this experience, and how you believe a birth and/or postpartum doula could best serve you.

During our initial consult with me, I will get a sense of what your specific needs are, and then I will reach out to my team to see who is available and who I think will be the best fit for your family.

Then, we will get you in touch with the doula(s) so you can meet and decide if you’d like to move forward with us.

Birth Doula Services

During your birth, you and your partner deserve the loving, steady presence of a doula.

Your doula will be there to help you navigate the expected and unexpected aspects of birth, bring you comfort and encouragement, and utilize evidence based and embodied strategies to support a smooth and joyful birth experience.

Your doula will support whatever type of birth you desire or need, wherever you choose to bring your baby into the world.

You’ll also have me (and so will your doula!) to provide any needed information, comfort, or guidance prenatally, and virtually during the birth.

Your birth doula service package includes: 2 prenatal meetings so we can all get to know one another better, understand your birth preferences, explore options, and practice coping and comfort skills; birth plan preparation; advocacy during pregnancy, birth, and beyond; guidance on your birth options and rights; 24 hours on-call for your birth during your due window; labor and birth support at home, birth center, or hospital; vaginal, cesarean, and VBAC support; medicated or unmedicated birth support; simple photos of your birth if time allows; fetal positioning and natural labor progress strategies; partner skill building; one postpartum check-in visit; support from your primary doula and me!

We have two tiers of birth doula experience levels (which doulas are available to you will depend on the individual doulas’ availability for your estimated due date). If you prefer one of the two tiers over the other, we will do our best to accommodate:

Tier One

These are our newer, highly trained and skilled birth doulas
I will attend both prenatal meetings and the postpartum follow up visit with your doula

Tier Two

These are our birth doulas who have had quite a bit of experience
I will attend one prenatal and the postpartum follow up visit with your doula

Teams

Occasionally, due to a variety of circumstances or preferences, our birth doulas may work in a team, in which case you would have two of our doulas at your prenatals, sharing on-call time, etc. In this case, I will only provide virtual support since you’ll already have two awesome doulas.

See below for packages and pricing. Discounts available to those taking my childbirth education series and/or hiring me as your Postpartum Transformation Guide.

Postpartum Doula Services

After the birth of your baby, you want to feel held, nourished, cared for, and deeply understood.

The postpartum time unfolds as transformation, learning and unlearning, discovery, and profound love.

This precious time is what I am called to support, and I do so in a very unique and skilled way.

As your Postpartum Transformation Guide, I help facilitate your physical and emotional healing, offer education and resources where needed, and not only journey with you, but truly hold you in your process.

It is this focused bodywork, traditional postpartum care, infant care specialization, and emotional/spiritual coaching that is the cornerstone of my work; it is what I had been referring to as a postpartum doula+++, but am now proudly calling the Postpartum Transformation Guide. Please do read the linked page for a deeper explanation of this work.

If this sounds like it would enhance your postpartum experience, and you would also like more time getting care that includes: meal preparation with postpartum needs in mind; additional holistic, hands-on postpartum body care; in-home placenta preparation (if desired); emotional support and encouragement; newborn care and instruction; lactation and infant feeding support; partner education and support; sibling support; practical household care when needed; and more, then you will love adding on 1 or more day and/or night shifts with my postpartum doula team!

Postpartum Transformation Coaching Package
2-2.5 hour weekly sessions with me for the first 4 weeks postpartum

Day Shifts
Add on 1 or more day shifts to your package with one of my postpartum doula team members. Day shifts are 4 hours and can be scheduled morning, mid-day, or afternoon/evening. Day shifts focus on postpartum care, education, meal prep, and practical support.

Night Shifts
Add on 1 or more night shifts to your package with one of my postpartum doula team members. Night shifts are 8 hours and are generally available from 10pm-6am. Night shifts focus on maintaining a peaceful, restful environment for parents and baby, with less emphasis on education and practical household support.

With our postpartum care you will receive: me for four weeks as your Postpartum Transformation Guide, and, depending on how many postpartum doula shifts, and whether you book day shifts, night shifts, or more, one or more of our postpartum doula team members.

See below for packages and pricing.
