Holistic Doula Services
~ 2 prenatal appointments
~ On-call birth doula support at 37 weeks

I offer my services on a sliding scale. Those with more resources will be funding an opportunity for those with less.
A doula! Pronounced doo-luh. Doulas are a trained professionals, providing physical, emotional, and informational support to pregnant people before, during, and after labor. Research has shown that people who received doula support were more likely to have vaginal births, less likely to use pain medication, and were more likely to have a positive birth experience.
As a holistic doula trained in mind-body practices, I aim to help you achieve a gentle, mindful, and emotionally fulfilled birth experience.
Before birth ~
I will guide you in exploring your preferences and emotions around pregnancy and birth, and help you navigate your birthing and labor options. I am dedicated to help you enter labor informed, prepared, and empowered!
During labor ~
Present with you throughout labor, I act as a source of comfort, reassurance, and advocacy. I am totally focused on you and your needs in every moment. As a trained energy healer and meditation instructor, I can hold a calm and reassuring presence while helping you relax your body and mind.
After birth ~
I offer one in-home visit where I check-in on the emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of your new family. I provide a nourishing batch of postpartum healing soup or stew and offer light energy-healing techniques. If you are interested in extended postpartum care, I offer a "First 40-Days" program.
