At Connected Birth we are well versed in the needs of military families.

Birth with love

We understand the stresses and strains of:

  • partners who are in the field for weeks and cannot attend a weekly childbirth education class

  • moving mid-pregnancy or even days before your due date

  • not having your loved one with you during labor and birth

  • being a pregnant soldier and struggling with finding time for balance

We consider it an honor to work with families who are serving in all branches of military.

“I am so thankful for the blessing of Lacy! Lacy was a calming presence. She looked to me for cues to determine how involved I needed her to be.”

The benefits of working with Connected Birth as a military family include:

  • Include a loved one in sessions via Skype/phone.
  • If your loved one is deployed, the option to have two doulas at your birth. One to support your partner and one to focus on you.
  • Assistance with finding a provider and doula (if so desired) in your new area when moving before your due date.
  • Flexible payment plans and competitive pricing. Military families and first responders receive a 10% discount on all services.
  • Postpartum care available to connect you to continued support after your birth.

“Lacy was very kind and accommodating throughout the entire process. She has a quiet reassuring presence. She helped, rather guided my partner and me through and extremely complicated labor and delivery. My partner also appreciated her preparation and support throughout the whole experience. She went the extra mile and also worked with my 4 year old daughter to ensure she felt included, excited, and comfortable for the arrival of our baby boy. I can not thank Lacy enough for bringing so much love and peace to, what can easily be, an extremely stressful stage of our lives.”
