BIRTH PLANNING 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. Sessions can be held in-person or online via Skype or Google Hangouts.

$75 for a three-hour session, $25 for each additional hour


Postpartum PLANNING 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. Sessions can be held in-person or online via Skype or Google Hangouts.
