BY THE MEADOW BIRTH & LIFE SERVICES

Birth and Bereavement Doula

Serving the Sioux Falls, SD area. Virtual packages also available.

 

MY NAME IS ABBIE

I am a mother to three, but one couldn't stay

I have had a passion for birth work since I was in Massage Therapy school in 2012. I have three beautiful sons. My second son, Leighton, was born in 2017. Sadly, he was not able to stay here on Earth with us. Because of his little life, I am only more passionate about helping women and families who have had to say goodbye too soon (in any trimester), find healing through their grief. In December of 2021, I became a certified birth and bereavement doula. I am here to support you through your birth, in any trimester.

"Leighton" means "town by the meadow"

WHAT I OFFER

Please contact me for packages and rates. Our first consultation will always be free. I offer both in person and virtual support. It is my belief that all women deserve the support of a doula. No matter what, I will meet you where you are with kindness and love.

PRENATAL GUIDANCE

I will meet with you a minimum of two times during your pregnancy to discuss any feelings, or questions you may have. We will go over your birth plan and how we can make your dream birth experience a reality.

BIRTH SUPPORT

Starting at your 37th week of pregnancy, I will be on call for your birth. It is my job to advocate for you and your partner. I can offer comfort measures during your labor such as massage, essential oils, Rebozo, and using a TENS Unit.

POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

Even after baby is born, I can help you through the Fourth Trimester. Your birth package includes one visit, but I am available for additional visits if needed. I am your first resource for basic breastfeeding questions. I am also there to mother the mother, whatever that looks like.
