"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that it is painful. It's that women are strong."

My goal is to support parents through their labor and help them to have the birth experience that they want. Whether you choose to birth your baby at home, at a birthing center or at a hospital; my role is to support you through the process. I provide a free initial meeting with you (and your partner or spouse). At this meeting you can ask me questions, discuss the support you want and how I will take part in your birth and we can together decide if I will be a match for what you will need.
If you choose to work with me: I will meet with you at least once before your birth. At this/these meetings, we will go through you birth plan, discuss your expectations and preferences, go through forms of relaxation, as well as answer any other questions you may have. I am available on-call to you via phone and/or e-mail from week 37 of your pregnancy until your birth. I will remain with you throughout your labor and birth. During you labor, I will be there to offer constant physical and emotional support, as well as, help you in making any decisions. I will help your spouse or partner by offering reassurances, assistance, suggestions and information.
After your baby is born. I will stay with you at least one to two hours after your baby and help you with initial nursing and make sure that you are comfortable and ready to have bonding time with your new family. I will make myself available to you by phone to answer questions, postpartum. I will provide one postpartum (home) visit to: go over your birth experience, get feedback from you on my role in you birth and admire and answer any questions you may have about your baby.
Your investment is: $2500
If you choose, I also offer fully Virtual Only Labor Support which includes everything that I offer in person just over video or phone. Your investment for this: $1500.
Finances should not be a reason to not get support. Please fee free to reach out to me to discuss.
*If you see the need for more support beyond my visit, I offer post partum services.
