Welcome

Hello, my name is Michaela Phan and Blooming with Baby is the vessel where I serve and support women in this miraculous stage of life called motherhood. 

 

My mission is to educate, empower and care for mothers so they can experience the journey of fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum joyfully, consciously and fully supported 

 

 

I support women by co-creating health and wellness, while providing a place of non-judgement so they may bloom into confident and vibrant mothers. 

 

Support 

What is a Doula and what kind of support can you expect to receive?

 

Doula care stands on three main pillars of support

 

Emotional    Physical    Informational

 

Emotional - I provide emotional support throughout pregnancy, during labor, and the postpartum period. Some ways that I can support you emotionally are:

  • Talking 

  • Holding Space in Labor 

  • Guided Meditation 

  • Hypnotherapy

  • Creating a Safe Space

  • Anticipating Needs 

  • Encouragement

  • Yoga Nidra

  • EFT (tapping)

  • and more!

Physical - I provide physical support in both pregnancy and labor. This is customized for your unique needs and may include:

  • Professional Massage 

  • Double Hip Squeeze 

  • Counter Pressure

  • Position Changes 

  • Yoga Techniques during pregnancy to help prepare for labor 

  • Teaching Partner Physical Techniques 

  • and more!

Informational - Informational support mainly takes place during pregnancy but can play a key role in labor as well. Some ways that I may provide informational support are:

  • Offering Explanations 

  • Providing Resources 

  • Answering Questions 

  • Describing what's happening in Labor 

  • Childbirth Education 

  • Postpartum Education 

  • Assistance Creating Birth and Postpartum Plan 

  • Offering Pros/Cons

  • and more!

 

What can you expect during prenatal appointments, labor and postpartum?

Prenatal Appointments - These meetings will take place before you give birth and will be customize based on your needs. You will experience a combination of emotional, physical and informational support. Usually we start with the creation of your birth and postpartum plan. Then we discover your dreams, fears and preferences and create a beautiful pathway towards birth using many of the skills listed above. Childbirth education is discussed in depth so that you are comfortable with your body, know what to expect in labor and know what is normal for your body. 

 

Labor Support - From the moment you hire me I am on call and attend your entire labor from onset to active labor to 1-2 hours after birth. I provide continuous physical, emotional and informational care. You can count on me to hold space and help create a special experience. 

Postpartum Visits - Postpartum hours vary based on your package but will always include a combination of stress relief techniques, processing your birth story, infant sleep education, feeding support, referrals and resources, teaching newborn care skills, watching baby so that mom can shower or nap, light housework, and more. 

 

What do Doulas NOT do?

As a doula I am not a medical professional. Doulas do not deliver babies, perform medical procedures, check your cervix or dilation, take blood pressure, prescribe or diagnose. While studies have shown that Doulas can help increase the chances of a positive birth outcome, Blooming with Baby LLC cannot guarantee any particular outcome. Michaela Phan of Blooming with Baby LLC does not attend "freebirths" or any birth where a Medical Doctor or Midwife are not present.
