I offer a free consultation to get to know each other.
- Ask questions, and decide if I am the right option for your labor support
- We can chat via phone, video chat or at a location in the Gwinnett area
Once we decide to work together, we will go through an intake process, sign a contract, and form a plan for our prenatal appointment. This includes:
Crafting your birth preferences
Practicing therapeutic techniques such as rebozo and counter pressure together and with your partner
Connecting you to prenatal and postpartum resources
Discussing questions, fears, and other relevant topics
Preparing for breastfeeding success and discussing postpartum recovery
Upon hiring, I offer continuous responsive communication to you via email, text, and phone call. From 2 weeks before your guess date until 2 weeks after, I will be on call for you physically. I will also be in contact via informational articles and community resources I will send your way from day one to ensure you have a sense of support and community.
I will be with you during labor from the moment you decide you need me until 1-2 hours after baby arrives, or successful breastfeeding is established, unless otherwise agreed upon. I will bring my bag full of tools (comfort measures and other items we will discuss at your prenatal appointments) to help you feel comfortable, cared for, and safe to birth.
We will have at least one postpartum appointment to hang out, recount the birth experience, discuss further care, connect you with any necessary resources, and go over the written account I will create of your birth experience.
The placenta is dried, powdered, and put into capsules. This form is best for use during the weeks following birth, for balancing hormones, improving mood, and facilitating recovery.
