Services & Workshops

Perinatal Services

  • Welcome to Pregnancy  ​

    • Discover the amazing 9 month journey of “growing a life” and the importance of being connected with your baby in utero.  A pregnant woman needs good medical care but she and her baby can also benefit greatly from an early emotional and educational support environment while becoming knowledgeable and empowered as a future parent. 

  • Mindful Birthing Childbirth Education

    • Use the power of being prepared to have a positive and loving labor experience. Topics include signs and stages of labor, non medical comfort techniques' medical interventions; empowerment, trust and deepening the connection with the process. The role of the labor partner is highly emphasized and supported.​

  • Labor Support/Doula Services

    • Provides a positive birth environment and experience by helping women and partners stay empowered and calm during the birth of their infant. By offering continued advocacy, comfort measures, coping techniques, and sensitive emotional support for the duration of your labor, your energy and attention can remain focused on the amazing process of birth. 

 

  • Breastfeeding Education and Support

    • Give your baby and yourself the “biological nurturing” of breastfeeding. Build confidence and knowledge while learning the child led, laid-back approach to breastfeeding.​

  • Infant Massage

    •  Fostering love, compassion, and respect, while improving general well-being, circulation, muscle tone ,sensory and body awareness​.  Also promotes relaxation and helps babies self-regulate , which reduces crying.

  • Mindfulness Meditation Practice for Parents/Kids

Promoting peace, awareness and wisdom by guiding families to awaken to the amazing mystery of birth, and by supporting families to connect with their intuitive loving nature to protect, bond, cherish, and nurture. My intention is for every pregnant woman and family to have a “voice” and to be educated, supported, respected, and confident throughout their journey from pregnancy through parenthood.

 

All services and workshops are developed based on the needs and interests of the client. Once goals, expectations, and outcomes are discussed, each specific program, regardless of subject matter, is designed and built from the foundation of inclusion, joy, forgiveness and connection.  Pricing is reasonable and dependent on the specific program requested and time required.
