SERVICES

What I Offer

PRENATAL CONSULTATIONS

As a birth doula it is important for me to prepare you for not only your baby's birth but your birth as parents. There are a variety of prenatal consultations you can book including: comfort measures, birth coach prep for partners, birth planning, childbirth education, and postpartum education. The doula package includes all these consultations.

NON-MEDICAL LABOR SUPPORT

Birthing people rave about the power of the double hip squeeze (google it). My doula role on your birth-day includes creating a cozy environment. Providing hands on support through massage, counter pressure, & positioning. I will help your partner in all these support roles because I know support from them means way more. I will provide education and create a positive birth team vibe. We will hit all the Maslow hierarchy of needs so you can just focus on birthing your baby.

POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

Postpartum is the time to recover, bond, and learn about your new family dynamics. However in our society the quote "everybody wants to hold the baby but who holds the mother"-Jabina Coleman @TheLactationTherapist often applies. Postpartum support includes nourishment, light cleaning, helping with breastfeeding, helping with baby care, and education.

BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT

As a lactation educator counselor my scope is "normal" breastfeeding challenges such as: positioning, attachment, observing for signs of milk transfer, education, and referral to an IBCLC if the breastfeeding challenge is beyond my scope of care.

TRICARE BREAST PUMP CONSULTATIONS
