If you are considering a home birth, I would love to meet with you and talk about your needs and questions. This will be a lovely opportunity to see if we will want to work together during your pregnancy and birth. We can connect over the phone, meet in person at your home, or grab a cup of tea together in your area to discuss your care. Call, email, or fill out the contact form to schedule a consultation.
Once we decide to work together, we will begin monthly visits during the 1st and 2nd trimesters and then switch to bi-weekly visits at the beginning of your third trimester. Come 36 weeks, we will begin seeing each other every week until your birth. I will be available to answer questions by phone and email throughout your pregnancy and will be on call for your birth starting at 37 weeks. I will be present at your labor, birth and after for several hours. I will return to check on you and your new baby at day 1, 3, and 5 and then at 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 6 weeks post partum. My care includes labs, breastfeeding support, and education about available choices.
Guided Healing Course: Pregnancy as an Initiation
As a Healer, I am pleased to offer remote support and guidance navigating a course I have crafted to address the emotional and spiritual aspects of the experience of pregnancy. This course is designed to prepare both first time mothers as well as mothers who may have faced traumatic birthing experiences in past pregnancies for birth as an initiation gateway. This course provides a map for navigating wounding patterns from the past that directly effect the experience of labor, birth, and the postpartum period. By working through these wounding patterns and gaining more self awareness, this course work wishes to provide a healing experience that empowers women and helps to stop intergenerational trauma from being unconsciously passed down to our children. There are two options for this service, please visit the page on the above menu dedicated to this service to find out more info.
Pregnancy and Post Partum Massage & Bodywork
As a certified Massage therapist since 2006, I am happy to offer massage prenatally as well as after your birth. I will use extra pillows and have you side lying on the table when you are pregnant. Relaxation and nurturing are wonderful ways to love yourself and your body during or after your pregnancy. Being trained in many types of bodywork, we can design a session that is perfect for what you are looking for.
Infant Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a supportive and gentle way to help new babies work out any body holding or trauma they may have experienced in the womb or during the birthing process. Babies with Torticolis, breast feeding issues, colic, or even irritability may greatly benefit from a Cranial Sacral session. Please inquire for more information.
I am pleased to offer Placenta Encapsulation Services to the community. I use the Traditional Chinese Medicine method of preparation and believe in the usefulness and power of this medicine in helping mothers stay balanced and strong after their birth. I like to prepare the medicine and have it back to mothers by no later than day 3 after their birth and can usually pick up and deliver from your birthing location or home. Please call or email to inquire.
