What to Expect

As a birth doula I support birthing people and their partners during the labor and birth of their baby.  I do not replace the birthing persons partner, I help alongside them and support them as well.  During labor I hold space for you and am there for continuous physical support, emotional support, and to help obtain information.  I do not provide medical care of any kind or give any medical advice.

I offer two prenatal appointments at your home where we get to know each other and discuss your birth preferences (environment, energy, etc.) and practice various coping techniques. During early labor I will meet you at your home to assist you and your partner. As labor progresses I will be with you at your chosen place of birth to continue support until approximately 1-2 hours after the birth of your baby. I also offer one postpartum visit at your home to help answer any questions about your healing, about your baby, to process the birth experience, or to help with feeding your baby.

I also offer Body Ready MethodSM alignment and corrective sessions as an add on to my birth doula services.  During pregnancy we will work in sessions to help you optimize balance, strength and resiliency in your body to help stack the cards in your favor for the birth you are hoping to achieve. I work with birthing people who want a professional by their side that can suggest positions and perform hands-on techniques, to create balance and space in the birthing body to support the physiological process of birth. I work with immediate postpartum people who want a simple protocol to follow to encourage optimal recovery from pregnancy and childbirth. You can choose to have one session or three sessions – it’s completely up to you and how you feel it would help your body and birth.

Why you want to work with a Body Ready MethodSM Pro:

  • I have a deep understanding of how to help you prepare for your desired birth
  • I can help address and minimize pregnancy related aches and pains, such as back or pelvic pain
  • I can help you maintain or gain a functional core and pelvic floor
  • I can help you learn how to move during pregnancy to optimize fetal positioning
  • I understand what your baby is trying to do and the moves to help create space for baby to do it!
  • I have a deep understanding of birth positions
  • I use hands on balancing and release techniques to help create better baby positioning, space and yield
  • This work can help decrease pushing time during labor
  • I can support you into a smooth transition into recovery and postpartum
