About

My name is Jacqueline Chandler, and I can't think of a time when I haven't been passionate about reproductive health. At my core, I believe it is a basic human right to have access to all the information you need to make informed choices in your birthing space and beyond.

I am a certified birth and postpartum doula through Doula Trainings International (DTI), a newborn care specialist, childbirth educator and a member of the Central Texas Doula Association. I am also one of the co-founders of La Mama Care, which provides practical, holistic postpartum care kits to mamas navigating the 4th trimester.

I feel fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful birth community in Austin and look forward to supporting your family on life's most exciting journey.

    Services

    • Birth support

      During our first prenatal visit, we'll talk through your birth preferences and postpartum plan. During our second visit, we'll walk through comfort measures and answer any questions to ensure you feel confident and prepared. Two weeks prior to - and after - your due date, I will be on-call 24/7 eagerly anticipating your phone call. I will meet you where you're laboring to provide support, and that one-on-one attention will continue until your baby is born. To ensure you, your birthing partner (if applicable) and baby are well taken care of, I will stay with you for up to two hours after the birth. I will then meet you and your family at home within the first week after the birth for a 1.5-hour postpartum visit.

    • Postpartum support

      Hiring a postpartum doula may be one of the best decisions you can make for you and your family during this remarkable and exhausting time in your life. I will come to your home and after a calming check-in, we will talk through your goals and needs for the day. It may be that I look after baby while you rest and shower; or it could be that I assist you with breastfeeding, laundry, and light meal prep. This time is led by you and your needs and can be booked in 4-hour daytime shifts, or 8-hour overnight shifts.

    • Personalized classes

      Having a hard time finding childbirth education and newborn care classes that fit your busy schedule? I offer private sessions on each topic (separately) in the comfort of your home. We'll talk about all things baby and birth and answer all your questions in these fun, interactive sessions.
