As your Birth Doula my greatest desire is to be of service to you. Being of service to others is a life-long practice of mine and it is my intention behind providing this care. Being able to support and witness new life brought into this world is a sacred and special opportunity that I hold with great reverence. It is truly a transformative journey with each birth being beautiful in it's own unique way. It would be a privilege to venture this journey together and provide support to you and your family every step of the way. My approach is to offer gentle guidance to you along the path, offering opportunities for you to discover within, which path is best for you.
I also acknowledge that every person comes with your own set of hopes and desires for birth and I believe that each of us innately holds deep wisdom within. I will actively listen, collaborate and offer non-judgmental care and mentoring so that you feel heard and a sense of trust in our partnership together.

I will provide doula support to you in your birthing place of choice, whether in your home, birthing center or hospital setting. Whether you are planning for a home birth, hospital birth or planned cesarean, I will be there to fully support and nurture you.
Before the Birth
-Prenatal visits are designed to get to know one another, discuss your birth preferences, practice different laboring positions and coping strategies that will support you. Prenatal visits are 1 hour each in length and these visits are held either in your home or virtually.
-Starting at 38 weeks gestation, I will be on-call 24/7 until requested to come support you for the birth.
During the Birth
-I will meet you upon your request when labor has begun and support you with the transition from your home to your birthing location
-I will provide continuous, by-your-side support, offering comfort measures such as massage, counter-pressure techniques, aromatherapy, space-keeping to ensure your safe birthing environment and assistance to your support person
After the Birth
-If desired, I will stay with you up to two hours after the birth to provide continued support.
-I will reach out within the first few days after baby has arrived to check-in and schedule your first postpartum visit. Postpartum visits are 2 hours in length at your home or virtually. I offer homemade postpartum nutritious snacks such as muffins or golden milk with my first postpartum visit.
Payment 50% retainer fee due upon signing of contract, per package selected to reserve your due date. The remaining balance is due by the second prenatal visit before the birth. Payment plans are also an option upon request. _______________________________ As your Postpartum Doula, my desire again is to be of service to you in those tender first few hours, days, weeks and months of welcoming a newborn, I will help you navigate this new chapter so that you never feel like you're having to do this all alone, It is so very important that you feel supported in more ways than one during these first few months so that you can allow the body to heal and thrive in order to support your baby, Whether it's an extra hand caring for the baby while you get some much deserved rest, prepping nutritious snacks for you or simply holding space for the huge life transition that you just experienced, I provide a variety of different supports during the postpartum period that include, but are not limited to...
