KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Got
Questions?

I bet you have a lot of questions about pregnancy, birth, and having a new baby. Are you getting the answers you are looking for?

Most parents discover pretty early on in pregnancy that they aren’t going to get their questions answered in their 15-minute doctor visits. 

 

They turn to books and find that they are outdated, or trying to push them into a type of birth they aren’t interested in.

 

They ask friends and family but get a whole lot of opinions, misinformation, and judgment.

 

Finally, they go to childbirth classes that are held in an uncomfortable classroom, driven by the agenda of the teacher, and just plain boring.

 

You deserve something better!

Perinatal education is a fancy word for education about anything that happens from pregnancy through postpartum. The education that I offer is custom-made for YOU so you don't have to slog through anyone else's opinions or waste time on topics that don't interest you.

If that sounds like what you want, the next question is... am I the Perinatal Educator for you?

What is a Perinatal Educator?

Here's what I can promise you...

I understand the many challenges of preparing for birth and postpartum and I will never judge what you are doing to navigate this time.

I will take the time to learn your specific preferences.

I will share everything I know, tips, and resources to optimize your birth experience.

 

As your Perinatal Educator, I will do many things for you…

  • Listen to what you are experiencing, your needs, and what is frustrating you without judgment

  • Provide education about pregnancy, the birth process, and the postpartum period so you know what to expect

  • Teach you an informed decision-making process for birth and beyond

  • Help you develop a birth and postpartum plan to tell your medical team and support people how to care for you in labor and postpartum

  • Provide hands-on guidance with positions and comfort measures for labor

  • Provide education for feeding your baby

  • Provide information on the patterns of infant sleep so you can work with your baby’s sleep cycles to support healthy sleep

  • Provide resources, tips and tricks, and options for your whole family

 

I am certified as a perinatal educator by INEPES.

  • Strategies for optimizing your birth experience 

  • Hands-on practices for comfort and support

  • Exercises for preparation and skill-building

  • Handouts, lists, tips and tricks

Sliding Scale Fees

Everyone should be able to have a doula if they want one. I offer a sliding scale as one way to acknowledge the differences in income, generational wealth, privilege, and costs of services that exist in our current economy. As a small business owner, I can’t change the systems of economic disparities and social injustice as quickly as I’d like. But this is how I can create more opportunities for equity, change the way business is done, and make a difference in the lives of folks in my community.

frequently asked questions

  • Q: Are you available for my due date?
    Please call me or fill out my contact form and I will tell you if I am available for your due date. I limit the number of births I attend to 3 per month, and most people contact me when they are 4-6 months pregnant, but feel free to contact me at any point in your pregnancy.
  • Q: When should I hire you?
    As early as you feel working with me will be helpful to you. We can start to meet and get to know each other, explore your ideas and questions, make plans, and prepare for birth and postpartum whenever you are ready. For most people, that’s around 6-7 months into their pregnancy.
  • Q: What if I am planning a cesarean birth?
    I support you before, during, and after your birth wherever or however it occurs. Due to hospital policies, there are some things I might not be allowed to do. For example, I may not be allowed into the operating room with you. But here’s what I can control: I will be at the hospital with you before your birth to support you as you get ready to meet your baby. If I’m not allowed in the OR with you, I will wait for you in your labor room, or the waiting room, and then join you after your baby is born to help you get settled postpartum. I will visit you at home after you leave the hospital. My services and fee are the same for all types of birth, but we can negotiate if you have special circumstances.
  • Q: Do you have a backup?
    Yes, always. I structure my business to reduce the chance of ever needing one, but I work with another experienced doula to be there in my place in case of emergency, illness, or injury. A Meet & Greet can be arranged if you’d like to meet my backup doula. I ensure you will be covered if I can’t be there!
  • Q: How much experience do you have?
    I have been a doula since 2018 and have worked with over 100 families. You can read about my training and experience here. (link to About Me page)
