Since my son's birth I have been in deep awe and respect for birth and birthing women/people. I am devoted to support Birthing parents in this beautiful journey and help create the kind of birth they want for themselves and their babies. I strive to help partners to become the best labor support they can be. I am an advocate for women's/human rights, natural birth and healthy babies. I offer doula services, private and group childbirth education and placenta medicine.
My role as a doula is to provide the birthing parent and her partner with information and resources, prepare and support them physically, emotionally and spiritually through the initiation of birth, take care of the practical things so that they can pay attention to each other and their baby. I also provide information and support postpartum: with breastfeeding, newborn care, recovery, parenting resources, co-sleeping, baby wearing, preventing and dealing with postpartum depression and counseling.
Included in my Birth Doula Services:
- One complimentary interview to get to know each other
- Unlimited phone and email support throughout your pregnancy
- Access to all my resources, books and DVD's
- Two prenatal meetings including embodied labor preparation and Rebozo education
- Being on call for you 24/7 from your 38th week until baby is born
- Support for you and your whole family during labor and birth
