Birthstone Doula Practice
Lindsay M. Kaye
I offer my services in the Bay Area and beyond. I am a member of The Marin Doula Circle. I was awarded my certification in 2016 as a labor &b birth/postpartum doula & Childbirth Educator, through Cornerstone Doula Trainings and I consult with them on how to be accessible to the Deaf communities I am fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and specialize in serving the Deaf community through my utilization of sign language. In addition, I've worked in public health science, counseling & advocacy, and teaching. I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Human Sexuality, and a Masters of Science in Family Studies from CSU Northridge.
Remaining current on issues pertaining to birth & postpartum care practices is key to my role as a doula. I build upon my foundation of basic training by continuing to stay abreast of trends in maternal care in order to gain more knowledge and skills through advanced trainings. Such courses include Homeopathy Essentials for the Childbearing Years, optimal fetal positioning, and reproductive justice so I can help clients advocate for themselves and their families.
My practice encompasses unbiased emotional, physical, psychosocial, & educational support. I apply culturally appropriate care to the expecting family based on current evidence based practicum during the entire cycle of pregnancy, labor & postpartum period. The client-centered scope of care equates support for not only the birthing person, but partners, siblings , and extended family as well. Whether my clients decide on a hospital birth, birth center, or home birth, I fully support the choices that expecting families make in order to ensure that clients feel empowered, educated and valued. I believe in the saying, "your body, your baby, your choice", in which I honor and hold a safe space for you and your partner during this sacred time.
I offer a free consultation to expecting families to discuss my rates and and options in my service packages. I accept sliding scale for clients with financial challenges.
