I LOVE BEING A DOULA
I am a certified birth and postpartum doula through Doula Trainings International, (DTI) and I am so completely in love with birth, life, love, the human body, and the mingling of all of the above. I believe that birth can be a very powerful right of passage that allows you to tap into your deepest power, and even a catalyst for healing and growth.
My practice is very holistic and nurturing, as I tap into my background as a yoga teacher and my heart as a mother. I support all births and all birthing people.
I may be a good fit as your doula if:
- you believe (or want to believe in) your own power to give birth,
- you are interested in making informed choices regarding your birth and early parenting journey, and
- you are excited to take responsibility for yourself in preparation for and during your birth
SUPPORT THROUGH YOUR FOURTH TRIMESTER
Traditionally, families around the world support the birthing person, baby, and their partner in the months following pregnancy, acknowledging the huge change and transition, and write of passage that birth and new parenthood is. Our western world is not always supportive of this period, and this is why the focus in my doula practice is comprehensive, and includes postpartum doula support in each of my packages.
As a postpartum doula, I will support your family in the week(s) following the arrival of your baby. This support can include breastfeeding support, meal preparation, light household tasks, shopping, baby care, guided meditation or breath exercises, yoga to keep you supple and strong,and more. My goal as a postpartum doula is not to assume care of your newborn, but to support you on your journey into new parenthood, with information, nourishment, and care, much like I do as a birth doula.
Sibling Support Packages
My background and experience working as a nanny and daycare provider inspired me to create packages supporting the littlest members of your growing family. Do you have a good grasp around birth, having done it before, but are now wondering how to support your children through the process of becoming a sibling? Do you want to approach the topic of birth with your child as a natural, normal process and event? I am able to tailor my packages and support to include sibling support before, during, and after the arrival of your new baby.
