As a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), my goal is to help you feel confident in your 'feeding' wishes and desires. Whether you are hoping to exclusively pump, chest-feed or breastfeed I want to help you feel supported and secure in your choices! All meetings take place in the comfort of your own home, in person, or virtually.
Consultations can be set up prior to, or after birth. Some examples of lactation support include, but are not limited to bullets below.

  • Clinical breastfeeding/body-feeding counseling 
     

  • Management support
     

  • Latch assessment 
     

  • "Back to work" planning
     

  • Milk production concerns + weaning 

Childbirth Education Classes

Childbirth Classes
During our classes we will cover three sections: The first is "The Anatomy of Pregnancy" this is where we dive into the foundations of birth, and cover topics like station, effacement, dilation, what contractions feel like and, when to go to your birthing place. Then we cover "Finding Comfort" where we discover what coping techniques resonate best with you personally! During this time we will also walk through several technical aspects of comfort measures such as optimal fetal positioning, hip-squeezes and counter pressure. Our third class is all about "Bringing Baby Home" . During this class we will talk about immediate postpartum, feeding your baby and basic newborn care. As we dive into feeding plans we can discuss chest-feeding troubleshooting and/or introducing a bottle, depending on what your personal feeding plans are.

*Pricing is per couple. Birth Support Partners are always welcome, and encouraged to attend!

ABOUT ME

A

Having served over 160 families in the birthing space, I believe fiercely in the power of support. My purpose is to help the birthing person have a safe, comfortable, empowering, and memorable birthing experience. I offer my clients emotional, physical, and educational support as they journey through a 'hinge' moment in their lives. I feel passionately about doula work and serving all people regardless their race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. My philosophy as a doula is that birth is a process, not a method. There is no 'correct' way to give birth--each birth is unique, and in turn requires tailored assistance. I assist birthing clients through massage, affirmations, visualization, and other positive coping techniques. My first and only goal as a doula is my clients satisfaction. A powerful phrase that I use often to my clients is "Your body, your birth, your baby. I am here to help facilitate your best birth how you define it." When people ask me "What makes you unique as a doula?" I often find myself saying : " I use my heart, and my hands to provide a tailored birthing space. I bring grounding relief to birthing people and their team, I do this through having an open mind, and an open heart. I always go the extra mile to provide evidenced-based research and information to my clients. I have a strong belief that a birth space is a 'sacred' space, whether you are a religious person or not--there is something sacrosanct about a birth space. I am honored, to be able to support and empower during such an impactful moment, in ones life--in a home, birth center or hospital.
