On the back of my minivan, I have this emblazoned for all to see:
As a Bradley Method® teacher, my sincere hope is that my students are going into their births confidently. I try to instill the knowledge that they'll need to navigate their labor without fear.
As a labor and birth doula, I am able to stand side by side with my clients and their partners as they welcome their new babies. I'm so happy to see their wishes and preferences be respected and their birth plans honored to the best of the staff's abilities.
You deserve to experience your birth with confidence.
The Birth With Bethany difference means that birth doesn't have to be a scary event you just struggle to get through. I am a former nurse, a trained doula, a certified Bradley Method® teacher here in Lewisville Texas and I do not leave your side. Your child's birth really is life-changing, and you deserve to be supported and informed.
It is my pleasure to be in the line of work where I hold your hand, stroke your hair, massage your back, give you sips of water and yes, sometimes, even get to hold the puke bag!
The Birth With Bethany difference also means that in addition to complete, nonjudgemental labor and birth support and childbirth education, I am also a certified child passenger safety technician, otherwise known as a car seat tech. My clients and students have the unique opportunity to experience complete peace of mind when it comes to buckles and latches and harnesses and seat angles and head cushions and...oh my! You see how easy it may be to become quickly overwhelmed when it comes to car seats!
I am happy to report that many of my clients ask me to check their baby's car seat before leaving their place of birth, and they can now confidently and correctly install their car seats! I also offer private, in-home checks for all residents of the north DFW area, including Lewisville, Flower Mound, Denton, Highland Village, Argyle, Grapevine, Coppell, Carrollton, Dallas, Lake Dallas, Corinth, Plano and more!
The Birth With Bethany difference means complete pregnancy, labor, birth and immediate postpartum support. This now includes placenta encapsulation! Mothers who have had their placentas encapsulated (made into pill form by me) report increased energy, boosted mood and more milk supply. You can journey into your postpartum stage confidently with placenta pills!
The Birth With Bethany difference means you can give birth without fear and experience your postpartum feeling refreshed. By providing Bradley Method® childbirth classes, unbiased doula support, placenta encapsulation and car seat checks, you really can experience confidence!
Doulas cost money. As well they should! I am at your beckon call 24/7. I don't have that second glass of wine on the chance you may need me tonight. I often leave the warm snuggles of my children in bed at 2:38am to be by your side for an unknown amount of time. And I love it! Supporting and seeing clients be respected while they meet their babies for the first time is such an honor, I am so very grateful to call it
And sometimes clients are looking for creative ways to pay me. The standard answer is: cash, check, credit, debit or PayPal. Let's explore our other options!
A baby shower is the perfect opportunity! When friends ask where you've set up your baby registry, tell them "Birth With Bethany"! They can pool their money together and purchase a doula gift certificate for you. What other gift could impact a lifetime?
Budgeting. Whomp whomp. So boring, right? True, but it is what my husband and I did to afford our doula. Cable tv? Gone. Starbucks? Home-brewed tea is fine. Coupons? Yes, please!
Payment plans. Did you know that I accept payment plans? We can create an agreement that works for both of us, allowing you to schedule your payments in order to be paid in full without hassle. Cool!
According to www.bestgaragesaletips.com, the average profits from a yard sale is $500-$700! That's a lotta moola! Obviously, this takes planning and lots of preparation, but it is definitely garage sale season in the Lewisville, Denton, Flower Mound and Dallas areas right now! And you can get rid of extra stuff to make room for your new baby. Nesting, anyone?
