I offer services both as a birth and postpartum doula. The services provide care to you during the prenatal period as well as during the labor and birth and beyond into the first few weeks postpartum.

This can include suggestions for positions, ensuring you are eating and drinking, providing information about interventions or medical procedures as well as normalizing the experience. I provide verbal encouragement, relaxation and breathing techniques and massage.

I provide numerous labor and birth aids as well as an AquaBorn birth pool if you wish a water birth.
At home with baby, I can assist you in breastfeeding support, education with infant care and soothing techniques, also ensuring you are resting and eating well. Housekeeping duties include laundry, meal prep & light housework. Daytime and night time shifts are available. Rates start at $25.per hour. Experience with multiples. Great support for women recovering from Cesarean sections or a long, tiring birth. Helpful when there is no immediate family close by or partner must return to work.

Placental Encapsulation

Many new mothers from various cultures around the world have used the placenta to increase their energy, regain iron stores
