SCHEDULED CESAREAN SECTION
The Scheduled Cesarean Section Package is for women who are having a scheduled cesarean section. It is an $850 investment and includes the following features.
You will have access to unlimited communication with Rachel via e-mail, text, or phone during designated daytime hours, and have lifetime access to an ever-growing directory of resources and Rachel's lending library. During an in-person prenatal visit, you will have the opportunity to express your desires and preferences, and explore your options for your cesarean section and the immediate postpartum period, process through any fears or concerns you may have and how to address them, learn about informed consent and self-advocacy, and discuss how Rachel will be able to best support you and compliment your birth team.
DURING YOUR CESAREAN SECTION
On the day of your scheduled cesarean, Rachel will be available for in-person support whenever you prefer, whether it is meeting you at your home prior to going to the hospital, or meeting you at the hospital upon your admittance. Rachel will provide reassurance, emotional support, and guidance for your partner, if applicable, as well as assist in processing through any unexpected deviations from your birth preferences.
Once your baby is born, Rachel will continue to provide in-person support for up to three hours. Rachel can assist in creating an environment for initial mother-baby bonding, provide guidance on breastfeeding and general newborn care, and suggest best practices for healing. A customizable plan will be created for up to four hours of in-person postpartum support depending on your individual needs and circumstances. This time can be utilized in any way it is needed, such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, running errands, processing through how your cesarean section unfolded, or simply giving you time and space to yourself. Rachel can also make recommendations to other supports and providers if the need arises.
