2 Prenatal Visits (In-Person or Virtually)

These visits are an opportunity to meet with you face to face. The goal is to help clients explore their options and desires for birth. Knowing where you are coming from will helps me understand what is important to them and why.

Nutrition

During pregnancy, the fetus experiences a critical period of plasticity. Epigenetics, specifically DNA methylation, plays an important role here. As nutrition is influential for DNA methylation, many studies show that  maternal nutrition during pregnancy can modify the offspring’s epigenome at birth. 

Postpartum Support

I provide evidenced-based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. As a postpartum doula, I'm here to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby.

Support looks different for every mother and could include any of the following: taking care of the new mother newborn care breast-feeding support caring for siblings meal preparation light housework, running errands, or walking the dog. At the beginning of each shift, I assesses what needs are most important to Mom on that specific day. Is she desperate for a nap? A shower? A warm meal? Clean laundry? Mom’s priorities are the doula’s priorities.  Flexible Payment Plans Available.

As a Doula, I  Do Not:

Perform any clinical tasks

Unlike a midwife, doulas are not medical professionals and therefore cannot administer medication.

Make decisions for you 

This is your journey. It's your world, and I'm just living in it :)

Speak to any staff on your behalf

I could never have the audacity to! I consult with you ALWAYS.

Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience

I am simply the resource connector :) 

Legacy Projects

Everyone’s life matters and we all want to know that we made a difference, and that, hopefully, the world is a better place because we were here. This, along with love, spirituality, sharing memories, and diving into family history is the root of legacy work. End of life is often a time of reflection that comes with a desire to create a tangible memory of your life. A legacy project is a lasting gift that connects, inspires, and reminds family and loved ones about who you were in their life.

 

I will work with you to create a legacy project for yourself and your loved ones as a way of sharing stories, memories, photographs, letters, words of wisdom or whatever is important to you. A legacy project can include making a video, writing letters for after your death, creating an art project, writing a book of your favorite recipes, life lessons, or favorite quotes, making a photo album, creating a playlist of your favorite music or arranging a gathering of your family and friends. The ideas are endless, and we have found that we can create beautiful lasting legacies while working together in-person and also over Zoom.

 

After we meet to discuss your wishes and learn more about how you want to be remembered, we will work with you and generate ideas for creating a lasting legacy of love for those you are leaving behind.
