Birth Support

My support philosophy is designed to allow my clients to feel completely held.  I am committed to diving deep with my clients to understand their history and current lives so that I can facilitate stepping into the next chapter on a solid foundation. Whether that is preparing to conceive your first child, a fertility event, birthing,  or caring for your a new baby with older children, each of those events has the potential to be transformative with the right support.  I am looking forward to working with clients that are ready to do the work that will allow you to create a physically and mentally healthy life for yourself. 

A note on financial exchange: 

Payment plans are available to help facilitate an investment in the support that would be most helpful.

One virtual prenatal visits. 

This visit will allow me to get to know and understand everyone who will be involved in the birthing process .

The visit will be within 2 weeks of birth depending on each situation. I will check in and hold space for you around processing your birth, what is going on with baby, light lactation assistance, and anything else you may need help with in that moment.  This visit will last about 1hour.
