Birth Education and Doula Support by Amy Rollogas

I offer doula support for your labor and private childbirth education in your home in the Richmond, Va metro area and west to Charlottesville, Va. I also offer instruction in acupressure for labor and moxibustion for breech. 

DOULA Support

If I were to have any more babies, I would, without a doubt, have Amy as my doula again. She is amazing! I could not have done it without her!
— Bernice Holland, doula client, St. Mary's Hospital

As your Certified Professional Doula, I will provide:

  • An initial meeting (free of charge) in person or by phone to determine if we are a good      match.
  • 2 prenatal visits (In addition, I will attend an office appointment with your care provider if you desire).
  • "Anytime" phone/ text availability before and after the baby's birth.
  • Assistance in finding the tools and information you need to make informed decisions about your care.
  • Guidance in creating and following your birth plan.
  • On call availability for 2 weeks prior to and 1 week after your "due" date (or until your baby is born).
  • Labor support at your home and the hospital/ birth center.
  • Emotional and physical support for you and your partner before and during labor.
  • Assistance in labor positioning and tools for helping your labor's progress and your comfort.
  • Acupressure.
  • Aromatherapy.
  • Amateur photography as needed (often, I will pick up a camera to record something lovely).
  • Assistance in establishing breastfeeding during the hour after birth.
  • 1 postnatal visit during your first week home.

I recently blogged my answers to a typical doula interview questionnaire. Read that HERE on my blog.

I felt supported in whatever decision I made... She is quick on her feet, intuitive, knowledgeable... and passionate about helping women achieve the best possible birth experience for her and her baby.

She believed in me and my desire for a natural delivery and I never felt she was trying to transfer her personal birth opinions on me. At my postpartum checkup, my OB couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful it was to have Amy in the room.
