Initial Postpartum Visit $50 (included with birth support) : Once you settle in a few days after birth, questions and concerns can creep up.  Schedule this initial visit in the comforts of your own home to address any questions you may have around positioning, pumping, and feeding your baby

Follow Up $40: Assistance with any further support and needs that may arise as your baby grows such as building a milk stash, handling supply issues, pumping to plan for returning to work, nursing toddlers and anything else. 

I aim to bring a warm and calming presence to all my visits with a family. Throughout your pregnancy, birth and beyond, I want you to feel respected, empowered, nurtured, and confident. I will provide unconditional and consistent support.  I always encourage families to truly honor what their hearts want and what is best for their individual family.
