The major role of the postpartum doula is to help the family make a smooth adjustment to life with a new baby by educating and supporting the new parents in such a way that they feel empowered to care for their newborn, each other and themselves with confidence. My work focuses on encouraging new mothers to rest and bond with their babies, and to resist the pull to resume their busy lives before it's actually time. I provide my clients with resources to aid them in healing themselves physically and emotionally after giving birth, and I nourish them with food, conversation, guided meditations, time to rest and bathe, and, of course, validation and encouragement.

Studies have shown that women who have social support during the postpartum period tend to have less postpartum depression, breastfeed for a longer duration and make a better adjustment to parenthood overall.

To learn a significant reason why I chose to become a birth and postpartum mentor/doula, please read this personal piece that was published by HelloGiggles.

TWO-HOUR mentoring session

In the style of a prenatal appointment you would have with a birth doula, I will spend time with you, your partner, your family, friends - anyone you are inviting to join you on your journey - to share my knowledge on everything pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Bring your questions and your inner wisdom; together we will ease your concerns and find answers to your questions while exploring all resources available to you, both online and in our community.

BIRTH PREP Consultation

Having a birth plan and birth intentions sets you up for success, whether or not every single one of your hopes is met. Does it guarantee a pain-free and perfect birth experience? No. But it does guarantee that you will be more prepared for one of life's most important and uncontrollable situations. The three-hour birth discussion and planning consultation allows time for us to go over any concerns you may have, as well as the intended and unintended outcomes of some of the more common situations that come up during childbirth. We will then devise your actual birth intentions and write them out together both creatively and practically. 

$100 for a three-hour session, $35 for each additional hour


Postpartum PREP Consultation

There is nothing better than feeling totally prepared for the arrival of your little one. During our three-hour postpartum discussion and planning consultation, we will discuss your expectations and concerns regarding recovery after childbirth and life with a newborn, and use the knowledge gained to create a personalized postpartum plan for you and your family. Your specific circumstances, physical and emotional needs and existing support system will all be taken into consideration. Other fourth trimester preparations we will consider together include assistance with creating a baby registry, organizing a meal train and setting up your living space to accommodate your new addition.

$100 for a three-hour session, $35 for each additional hour
 

birth + POSTPARTUM Prep Consultation

If you would like to take part in both planning sessions, purchase them together for a discounted price. All of the details in the above descriptions apply.

The New Mama Bundle combines my private mentoring sessions with my postpartum doula services. In doing so, I am your guide, companion and sister. I will accompany you on this journey from the moment we connect, guiding you through pregnancy, birth, the fourth trimester and beyond. Not only will you learn from me, you will teach me in return, as every birth invokes change in those who witness it. Together we will ensure your motherhood journey is filled with discovery, fulfillment, peace, love and satisfaction. 

Your investment garners you the following: 

PRIVATE Mentoring sessions ($300 value)

I will provide you with comprehensive and modern childbirth mentoring sessions that discuss pregnancy, birth and postpartum equally. These six sessions will be part in-person session and part at-home study, but this isn’t your average birth prep class. My sessions, which stem from the Birthing From Within philosophy, will help you to go inward and learn more about your inner self while simultaneously becoming more informed about birth in today’s society. You will learn your options and choose your preferences while also better understanding your spirit and mothering style. I will also provide you with personal recommendations for all of your local care options, including birth places and birth support people.


In-Home postpartum care | package of your choice

Once birth has finally graced your family, your postpartum care will begin. The New Mama Bundle includes regular postpartum care (package of your choice from the options listed here), and 24/7 access to me via email, text or phone for the duration of our contract. Postpartum care consists of guidance in regard to healing practices, infant feeding and soothing techniques, nourishment, rest, emotional support and general home organization and tidiness. I am an animal lover and enjoy giving your pets some love and attention. Walks with any and all pets and family members are also a great way to spend some time together.

It is my hope that our friendship will continue after your postpartum days of rest and nourishment, as I am on this motherhood journey with you no matter what. After all, we are more than just a doula and her client. We are women together on this planet, and we have a shared responsibility of raising the next generation of peaceful change-makers side-by-side. That being said, if you would like to extend our contracted postpartum time together that is totally an option (if availability allows).
