POSTPARTUM DOULA CARE
When a baby is born, so is a mother, and she needs to be fed, held, and nurtured too. Postpartum Doula Care is in-home support after birth for the mother. This generally includes breastfeeding guidance, nourishing food preparation, comfort measures, and tools to support the mother's healing journey.
BREASTFEEDING EDUCATION & SUPPORT
An in-depth prenatal class to give you every advantage from the start. We cover physiology of breastfeeding, how to ensure a good latch, establish and maintain supply, common concerns, myths, and so much more. Partners are encouraged to attend. This 3-hour class is offered monthly in- person. Inquire to sign up. Follow-up communication after the birth is available as well.
CLOSING OF THE BONES
A nurturing tradition around the world to honor the mother, Closing of the Bones is a ceremonial bodywork session to facilitate deep connection and acknowledgment of all your body has undergone. Together, we can customize details of your session to help you feel closure of your pregnancy and birth.
INFANT MASSAGE INSTRUCTION
Our first communication is through the skin, and babies need ongoing positive touch to survive. Massage from a loving caregiver promotes trust and attachment, helps parents learn baby's cues, and stimulates oxytocin (the "feel good hormone) and decreases cortisol (a stress hormone). Learn more about massage basics, infant-specific strokes, oils, and more. Inquire for class details.
BIRTH STORY MEDICINE SESSIONS
We all have a beautiful story to tell, but rare is it that we experience birth without some fragments that linger in our memory causing continued discontent or pain. Created by Pam England of Birthing From Within, the Birth Story Medicine process offers a whole different way of experiencing your story and finding peace. 60 minute sessions.

My passion for supporting women through their postpartum period grew from her own experiences. By the time I was expecting my third baby, I had figured out that prioritizing my own wellness was a necessity for the whole family. She now supports growing families through education, one-on-one support, and postpartum nourishment.
