Before & During Birth
A free consultation | Let’s meet and see if we are a good fit!
Two prenatal visits | We meet twice in the time prior to your birth to get to know each other, envision your labor and birth, discuss possibilities and concerns, review techniques and tools for labor, and anything else. I am available by phone, email, and text support.
Continuous labor & birth support at the hospital, birth center, or home | I am on-call beginning at 38 weeks. Call me once labor begins, and we will decide when and where it is best for us to meet. Once you are in active labor, I will stay with you continuously throughout labor and birth. I provide emotional, physical, and educational support through pain management, breathing and relaxation techniques, positioning suggestions, comfort massage and touch, encouragement, facilitating communication with medical staff and support team, explaining birth physiology, and nurturing a comfortable environment. After birth, I stay with you for a few hours and help you get settled and initiate breastfeeding.
Postpartum home visit | I offer a home visit a few days after birth to give space to reflect on your birth experience, offer breastfeeding support, and any other support I can.
