- One free consultation: This is the time where we meet to talk about your ideas and desires for your birth, this meeting is about 1 hour long and can happen at your home, coffee house, or via video call. We will discuss the different ways on how I can support you during the process. After this meeting, if you decide to move forward with me, you will receive a welcoming email with a list of resources, books and podcasts for you to enjoy during your pregnancy and we will determine the date for your prenatal visits.
- First prenatal visit: During this meeting we check on how you are doing, we will also go over theory of birth, physiology of birth, what to expect at the hospital, navigating the system, holistic birth, brain waves, and understanding birth as an altered state of consciousness. We will also talk about creating a birth and postpartum plan.
- Second prenatal visit: We will use this time together to reconnect and re-center, setting our intensions for the birth, we continue to form a relationship of support and trust, we practice massages and visualizations to start letting go of tensions surrounding birth and to start focusing on expansion, love/oxytocin and trust. If birthing person and partner are interested, we can move from the head space into the heart space with a guided meditation. Most of the time after this time together, the pregnant person wants to go to rest and relax. Please understand that I am not a massage therapist, I am just a woman who wants to tend and support other people during their birth process. My massages come from common sense, love and compassion.
- Open to communication via email, phone, text, video call: I’m available to answer any questions or concerns. I would love to receive updates after appointment with your doctors or midwives, to check in and to see how everything is going and to support you in any way I can.
- On call at week 38: This means that I won’t be accepting other clients with your due date and starting at week 38, I block my calendar for traveling out of state or going far away from you in order to remain available when you go in labor
- Birth and immediate postpartum support: Once you feel that you need the extra support during early labor, I can come over to support you at your home before going into the hospital, or before you call your midwife to your home birth. I stay with you during the whole process and I like to stay 1-2 hours after the birth, to make sure that you are ok and settled with your newborn.
- One postpartum visit: Between 1-4 weeks after the birth, I come over to your house to check on you, how you are healing, how baby is doing, to answer any questions about breastfeeding, newborns, herbs, etc. We process the birth. This part is very important to close the cycle of pregnancy and birth and to move forward into parenthood. If requested by parents we can prepare a postpartum ceremony.
- Herbal guidance through pregnancy and postpartum: If you are interested, I offer herbal education and classes on how to use simple and gentle herbs that have been traditionally used during pregnancy and to heal during the postpartum period.
- Herbal products available: I offer 20% discount on my products to my doula clients
- Open to communication via email, text, phone, or video call as long as you need after the birth of your child. As you can imagine, when working with me as your doula, and witnessing you through your transformation, the bond created can become very strong and last through time. I’m here for you as long as you need me.
