Education & Courses

Free Consultation 

As part of our interview process, I sit down with clients and help them talk through what their goals are and how having a Doula come along side them may help in the journey.  

Baby's First Feeding Support

As your Birth Doula, I am there with you during those first few hours after birth.  As needed, I am able to provide breatfeeding support, as well and help you connect with Lactaction support at the place of birth.  

Phone & Email Support 

Once hired, I am available to clients via phone and e-mail.  This provides access to research, information and encouragement.

Placenta Encapsulation & Tincture

Women have reported experiencing the following:

  • Help in balancing hormones 

  • Replenishing depleted iron levels 

  • Assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state 

  • Reduce post-natal bleeding 

  • Increase milk production – study 

  • A happier, more enjoyable post-natal period 

  • Increase energy levels 

  • Baby blues can effect up to 80% of women within the first week of birth. 

  • Women who consume their placenta report fewer emotional issues and a more enjoyable postpartum.

Postpartum follow-up visit

As part of Birth Doula Support, all clients recieve a follow-up Postpartum visit at their home.  This provides a time to review the birth and talk about any needs that you may have now that you are home with baby.

Overnight Postpartum Support

I am available to assist with overnight care on an as needed basis. Overnight support allows Mom (and Dad) to sleep in-between breastfeeding/feeding times, knowing that your little one is cared for. If Mother is exclusively breastfeeding, I will bring baby in to her when it is time to feed baby and come get baby when they are done so that Mom can quickly get back to sleep.

 

Community Referrals

Though as your Doula, I can not make recommendations regarding medical care, I can provide resources for area support services.   

Childbirth Education Classes

Childbirth classes can be single couples or groups.  Tailoring information specific to what each family wants for their journey.

Postpartum Readiness Workshops

Each family is unique and has their own journey to walk out. My goal is provide families with the practical tools and resources to help them with the transition from birth into life with a new member of the tribe.  

  • Creating a postpartum plan of action for your family’s specific needs and goals

  • Practice the practical side of parenting (diapers, bath time, and the art of swaddling)

  • Field trips and shopping consultation

  • House hold organization and preparation

  • Connecting with area resources and support
