2 prenatal visits will give us an opportunity to get to know one another, and so I can get a clear idea of what you envision for your birth. I will be available throughout your pregnancy as a resource of information and emotional support.
I stay on call around your due date by not scheduling any other births during that time, and not scheduling any personal or family activities that require me to be away. I will attend the whole birth, even if it is a long labor. Doula services also account for 1 follow up postpartum visit.

Good postpartum care should include good sleep, good nutrition, and tons of support and love. Postpartum work includes light housework, baby care, emotional support, and expert guidance on sleep shaping.
This service usually involves hourly rates for a few hours per day. It can be purchased in week-long increments or in a package.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Parenting was never meant to be done alone. And that is true even more so with pregnancy and infant loss. I would be honored to be your companion along your journey of grief and loss. We will help make and honor memories of your baby, grieve together, and help you celebrate the beautiful life lived, however short.

Adoption and Fostering
An adoptive parent makes room for a baby much in the same way a postpartum mother does. We all tear open, make space, and our lives are changed completely. Adoption and fostering present their own unique challenges, like dealing with the courts, last-minute preparation, long waiting periods, and sometimes loss. I offer ‘postpartum’ hours when the new addition is around, and phone support during transfers and court dates.
