Compassion Intuition Presence
"At this pivotal time on the planet,
we hold the vision
to turn the tides for birthing women,
to bring back respect
and all that is sacred for mothers,
and for babies as they enter the world.
Doulas are guardians
of this transition towards healing birth."
We spend an hour getting to know one another in the space of your choice. I answer any questions you may have and share a bit more about myself and what I offer. If we decide we want to move forward and work together, we will discuss and plan our next visit.

During the birth, I am there as your doula, your advocate, your biggest fan, and your support. I commit to showing up for you and providing you with the most loving and supportive care throughout your birth.
After the baby is born, I'll support you during the transfer to your postpartum room. I also provide one Postpartum home visit after the birth. The visit can last up to four hours.
I’ll cook a nutritious postpartum meal for you and your family
We’ll debrief your labor and birth experience
We'll focus on creating a positive and nourishing environment
I'll answer questions about feeding and provide the necessary resources and referrals if needed
Although I have prepared a general outline for our visits, I'm here for you and I'm flexible. We can talk about whatever you'd like during our visits. I can also offer Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Nutrition Support, Spiral Healing, Rebozo, Hands on Touch, Reiki, Yoga for the Pelvic Floor, Crystal Healing, and more! We can custom design our sessions so that YOU get the most out of them.
After our prenatal visits, I will be on call for your labor. This means no matter what time of day you begin labor, I will be there to answer questions and support you. Generally, I join my clients when they are in active labor.
I will be on call for you starting 2 weeks before your estimated delivery date and up to 2 weeks after.
I offer continuous care from start to end of labor.
