What type of support can I offer?

I support you from pregnancy and into your first months after baby's arrival.

During your pregnancy - we get together to navigate you and your family’s birth preferences. At this stage, we also develop a kick-ass postpartum plan to have you feeling ready for this transition.

During birth - it turns into a little bit of this and a little bit of that; you might need my support with comfort measures during labor, or a hip-squeezer,  an encouragement giver or an validator for your choices.

In postpartum - if you choose to include postpartum support, I will provide you with practical help with everything from understanding your baby’s cues, breast and bottle-feeding assistance, to modeling of infant and post-birth care. But just as important, consider me your informational and emotional sidekick finding answers for your questions and acting as an extra shoulder to lean on so the only thing you have to worry about is loving on and getting to know your baby.

I can also document your journey

Additionally, I offer photography coverage and my camera will travel with me to our prenatal meetings, your birth, and postpartum visits. My focus is on supporting you as your doula, but I will document as much of your story as I can as it unfolds - especially those moments after birth. At six weeks postpartum, you will receive a curated gallery of images of your story.
