1 Hour Prenatal Consult (included with birth support): Questions, concerns, deciphering between myths and facts and developing a feeding plan

Initial Postpartum Visit (included with birth support): 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 Ups: Sometimes things don't come up until weeks or months later. I am happy to assist with any further support and needs that may arise as your baby grows such as nursing strikes, handling supply issues, pumping to plan for returning to work, nursing toddlers and anything else. 

When supporting a family, my main focus is to provide a welcoming space for families to share their hopes and expectations for birth. I aim to bring a warm and calming presence to all my visits with a family and throughout your pregnancy, birth and beyond, I want you to feel respected, empowered, nurtured, and confident. I  provide unconditional and consistent support and I always encourage families to truly honor what their hearts want and what is best for their individual family.
