Choosing a Doula is an important task.
This is the support person who will guide you through the most mysterious, uncertain and transformational year and experience of your life.
My work is not to talk you into a perfect vision of childbirth, but to prepare and lead you to a resourced place inside yourself from which you can create a sovereign and empowered birth and postpartum experience.
Being prepared for childbirth matters. I will provide simple and valuable tools that prepare you for birth and postpartum. I offer support that may lessen the likelihood of trauma.
My goal is to help you achieve a sovereign and empowered childbirth experience, no matter the outcome.
My passion lies in supporting pregnant people like you to trust yourself to make the right decision, to take the next best step, to understand the voice and wisdom of your body and to do the work to integrate the birth experience you have.
This holistic work we do together creates a foundation of wellness that informs the rest of your life. I am your guide to conscious pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum integration and parenthood.
CONTINUOUS BIRTH SUPPORT
Once your labour begins, we choose a time when I arrive to support you. I will remain with you during your entire labour. Continuous labour support means improved outcomes for you and your infant.
In addition to being available via email and text, we will have 3-4 in person or Zoom prenatal appointments together. These serve as preparation, education and understanding your birth plan.
You will receive childbirth education in our prenatal appointments and yogic tools and techniques to practice that prepare you to cope with labour pain and the tender postpartum period.
In addition to being available via email and text, I will come to your home for 2 postpartum visits to integrate your birth experience and support you with whatever is coming up, including setting boundaries with family and friends.
Private yoga, aromatherapy, herbology, healing rituals, pregnancy and postpartum specific nutrition as well as additional prenatal appointments and postpartum care is available at an extra charge. Please contact for more information.
MORE THAN THE BIRTH OF A BABY
