Empowered Birth Strategy Session (FREE!)

Take some time to explore more deeply how you want to approach your birth, and whether I am the right person to support you! I have built my practice on helping moms-to-be have empowered, informed births that are just right for them and their babies, and I bet I can help you as well!  That's just what the Empowered Birth Strategy Session is designed to do!   

During this session we will:

- Create a sense of clarity about the birth you really want to have.

- Discover the essential building blocks for having the confidence and trust childbirth requires.

- Determine the #1 thing that could block you from having the labor and delivery you want.

- Identify the most powerful actions that will move you toward the birth experience you desire.

 

You will complete our session with the excitement of knowing EXACTLY what to do next to create the pregnancy, birth and postpartum time you truly want.

 

Cloth Diapering Classes (FREE!)

I have teamed up with Eco-Baby Diaper Service to create an awesome virtual cloth diapering class: Dookies Deuces and Dumps! Cloth Diapering 101.  It's a comprehensive review of prefold cloth diapering options and use. Come have fun talking about poop in ways you never could before baby! We’ll cover all the important questions, like Why Cloth? How do I use these things? How do I clean these things? Should I use a service or wash my own? How should I set up my diaper changing area? It’s fun, informative, and kind of gross!  Check it out!

Comprehensive Childbirth Education ($350)

This package is childbirth education that will blow your mind, on your own time and on your own terms!  Perfect for families looking for just a childbirth class!  It's super flexible; you can do it on your own time, and make it fit into your schedule! After a decade of birth work, I have found that my clients have a much easier, smoother and more joyful birth experience when they have comprehensive prenatal, birth and postpartum education.  This package includes:

- 9 hours of video tutorials 

- 2, 30-minute live one-on-one education recap sessions for discussing homework, questions, or anything else that comes up for you during your class.

- Fun assignments & Handouts that emphasize key lessons

Birth Like a Boss ($750)

This package provides complete prenatal & postpartum support and education to families.  It's super flexible; you can do it on your own time, and make it fit into your schedule! After a decade of birth work, I have found that my clients have a much easier, smoother and more joyful birth experience when they have more comprehensive prenatal, birth and postpartum support than a traditional doula provides.  Birth Like a Boss is the perfect compliment to traditional doula care, and makes a huge impact on birth outcomes even for mamas who choose not to have a doula.  The package includes:
