Birth & Adoption
Birth is a great mystery. I respect it as a sacred, powerful initiation for each and every birthing person, as well as for those who witness its passage. However, initiation means different things to different people. As your doula, I offer you a reflection of your experience. My scope of practice includes emotional support and advocacy with the primary birthing partner as well as with the person in labor. I support your choices, and offer you evidence based information, never making decisions for you. I will spend time helping you craft your birth plan, whether that is a written document or a visualization or meditation. I can hold your hand, and offer you massage and positioning suggestions. I am available for you 24/7 during your "birth window", and I offer 2-3 prenatal visits as well as 1-2 postpartum visits. I tend to favor relaxation and encourage peace and calm, but hold any atmosphere and activity that is invited in by my clients.
Fees for adoption support will depend on the situation, services sought, and time committment. I am open to working for trade or partial trade, and I offer a lower fee for homebirth clients. No requests will be ignored, so please contact me and help me understand your situation. We will find a solution that fits your needs.
