Poppy (she/they) is a bilingual (English and Mandarin) full spectrum doula offering free birth, postpartum and abortion doula services to women of color and queer trans people of color.
Poppy's doula services include:
Prenatal visit to discuss birth goals, desired comfort measures for labor and birth, mental health, relevant past information (triggers, trauma) that may affect the birthing experience, larger support team, plan B's, and how best to support you in advocating your needs with doctors, nurses and midwives.
Support through labor and birth using previously discussed comfort measures
Postpartum visit to discuss new born childcare, breastfeeding (if that is desired and a possibility), mental health, family planning, and what types of support and resources you might need moving forward.
Note from Poppy: Birth is unpredictable and even the most thought out "plans" are bound to shift and change. However, going into it with intentionality, preparation and knowledge that you have voice and choice over what happens can make all the difference in how you experience and remember this moment in your life.
If Poppy is unavailable for your birth, please contact Ancient Song for sliding scale doula services.
