SERVICES

Birth is a significant event and every woman deserves special attention from her birth team. I manage my client count so that you get my focused care throughout your pregnancy and labor.

LABOR DOULA

 

From pregnancy to Braxton Hicks, pre-labor to transition, crowning to cuddling, a labor doula helps you do the work to get your baby where you want her: in your arms. With wisdom, experience, and a voice of empowerment, I support you through the whole process so that you and your body can do what you are both capable of doing!

CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION

 

Your care provider probably offers childbirth classes and I love when my clients get to connect with others in a class setting. I am happy to provide my recommendation for classes by an excellent childbirth educator in the area. Should you need private classes or a refresher course, I am more than happy to make arrangements with you to do so. Regardless, I want you to be informed and educated for your confidence and empowerment.

Highlights
  • accessible emotional support

  • birth plan advocate

  • asset for mom and partner

  • resource for informed decisions

  • postpartum processing counsel

POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

 

Just because "the big moment" is over and baby is earthside does not mean you have to handle everything on your own. Take advantage of my knowledge and emotional support to put your mind at ease so you (and baby!) can get some much needed rest. Lots of questions can come up post-birth and I make sure my clients are well taken care of.

LACTATION CONSULTANT

 

Breastfeeding may be natural but that does not make it easy! This is an important area to "troubleshoot" if issues arise. Everything can go perfectly -- or maybe there are latch problems, tongue ties, or other issues. I am familiar with an array of situations and I will support you in resolving whatever arises or getting you outsourced to someone who can remedy the situation. One-on-one coaching can help you and your baby adjust to one another so that you can both thrive in this essential bonding experience.

I am a prayer warrior and if you need prayer support, I will happily supply it free of charge and in Jesus' name. :)
