As your doula I am here for you from pregnancy through postpartum. I offer bereavement and special circumstance doula services as well. Women deserve support throughout any stage of, or decision they make beginning with pregnancy. I am trained to provide continuous support (physical, mental, & emotional) along with various comfort measures to help cope with discomfort and pain during labor and birth. With my knowledge and experience, I can help gather information you many need to make decisions that will best fit your situation, as well as for your desired birth experience. I can provide reassurance and perspective, and help with any resources you may need reference to. Non-medicated births are not the only births I support! If you decide on a medicated birth and aren't looking for a birth doula-I am available for prenatal and postpartum doula work. If you are choosing to have a medicated birth, but still looking for support to keep labor progressing, comfort, and during delivery I can absolutely work with you in that as well. I am able to suggest labor progress techniques, relaxation, breath and sounding suggestions, prenatal, labor and birth positioning, as well as other comfort measures using my birth work supplies which I will explain and share at our initial meet. I will offer you a personalized birth story and though I am not a professional photographer I will take photos for you along your journey. I will refer you to a professional photographer if requested. I will refer you to medical support staff if necessary. I am certified for childbirth education through an apprenticeship and mentor. Although I can answer questions and do private mini sessions, I will refer my clients to a childbirth educator that I think will best suit them depending on their needs if they end up interested in taking a full childbirth education course. Placenta Encapsulation is included in my doula services, and discounted lactation services are offered to my clients.
My overall goal is to help make your birth journey match your perfect visualization. In addition, I am available for hire during pregnancy for shower planning, general baby planning, registry, and nursery design. This is not included in my doula package so let me know if this is an interest you might have. As your doula, I can also be hired me as your placenta specialist, your encapsulation will be offered at a discounted rate as part of the package. The fee for my doula package is $1,075. For any additional questions or booking please connect with me anytime.
