Wherever you choose to have your birth, you deserve to birth the way you want and feel empowered doing so. My prenatal support is designed to guide and prepare you for the birth of your baby while supporting you through your pregnancy journey and all it entails.
I am a certified rights-informed doula with 4 years of experience and a parent who has birthed three wonderful children. So much of labour & birth is in the preparation, and that's where I come in.
Sessions are customisable and designed around your needs
Access to text, phone and email support until your birth
In-depth meetings to discuss your birth plan/preferences
Up to four prenatal meetings that include basic childbirth education, what to expect with bodyfeeding, and how to prepare for the postpartum period
Please contact me to schedule a cost-free, no obligation 30 minute initial consult, following which we can set a date to meet in order to determine if we are the right fit! *please note this does not include in-person childbirth support*
Care for the birthing person doesn't stop at birth. Birth is a marathon and no matter how your birth has taken place, every body needs time to heal & recover. My postpartum practice takes on a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach, following the age-old Chinese cultural practice of Zuo Yuezi, also known as "sitting the month" or "confinement". With minor modifications catered to more modern expectations, I work with clients to find a balance of support that feels just right for them.
Rest and nourishment are key to one's recovery and allowing your body time to heal will benefit you in the long run. Much of my support include meal preparation and cooking you foods that aid in promoting warmth, providing necessary nutrients and ensuring you feel well-rested and cared for. I also provide newborn care (so you can take that much needed nap!), answer any questions about your new baby (why is their poop orange?) and offer basic bodyfeeding help and suggestions.
We can discuss a customised a postpartum care plan that works for your and your family. Sessions are a minimum of 6 visits and 4 hours in each visit. My rates range between $55-$65/hr depending on the package you choose.
