Overview of Care:
You will receive two prenatal visits and unlimited text and phone call support, access to my library of books, informed, current, and peer-reviewed information on parenting and birthing, and help creating your birth plan. You will also have the freedom to have as many or as few comprehensive conversations surrounding your fears, excitement, and assumptions of birth and parenting.
I will be on call 24/7 from 37 weeks until the birth of your baby. During your labor, I will be there to provide assistance to mom and partner for preparation and execution of your birth plan. You will also have use of our TENS machine (read about TENS here) and instruction on how to use it. While at the hospital, I will help translate and ensure you are being advocated for and know the benefits, risks, and advantages to different situations and processes that are proposed. I will be by your side the whole time and will offer emotional support (meditation, focus, etc) and physical support (massage, positioning, rebozo, etc). Perhaps the most important part is the collaboration with your healthcare providers to create a positive and mindful birth experience.
After the birth of your baby, I offer 1 postpartum visit. During this visit, I can help with anything from establishing breastfeeding, teaching you how to use a pump, bottle sterilization, baby care assistance (diapering, cord care, dressing), baby-wearing help, laundry, dog walking, help with visitors, light housekeeping, guidance and information on parenting, phone support, sibling support, and sleep support.
