Free Meet and Greet: For us to get to know each other! This meeting is for me to gain a better understanding of you, your pregnancy, your family and if I am a good fit for your situation.
Two Prenatal Visits: These meetings are for us to get acquainted. I get to know how I can best support you on your journey into motherhood. What expectations do you have for me? We will discuss previous births, pregnancies, hopes and fears, desires and priorities. We will discuss your birth plan and wishes and can write them together.
Folder of Infographics: After hiring me, I will bring a folder to our first prenatal visit full of educational, beautifully illustrated, birth related infographics for you to keep! They will help us begin having conversations about what you desire your birth to look like.
Information and Resources: Articles, books you may borrow from me and a list of local support people (postpartum doulas, lactation consultants, chiropractors, herbalists).
24/7 Support: I am available by phone or email throughout the duration of your pregnancy to answer any questions or concerns you have until you go into labor.
Labor Support: I am “on call” 2 weeks before your due date and 2 weeks after your due date. I will be available as early in labor as you need me and will meet you in your home or the birth place of your choosing (hospital or birth center) and from there will be supporting, encouraging, and cheering you on!
Immediate Postpartum Support: For up to two hours after baby is born, I will help and encourage family bonding, skin to skin, breastfeeding and any newborn wishes you may have in your birth plan. The day after baby is born, I can come by the hospital to check in on mom and baby if you desire.
Free Postpartum Herbal Bath: My gift to you! I will leave you with a satchel full of herbs to take home with you. You can steep it (like tea) in a bathtub and hop in to relax. These herbs have healing properties and will aid your healing process after birth.
One Postpartum Visit: Within one week after baby is born. I can answer any questions you have concerning life with a newborn and we can discuss your birth experience.
The birth package is $750.
I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC). My certification is from the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice. It is a passion of mine to come alongside you and support your breastfeeding goals. I offer consultations from the comfort of your home! I come to you because I strongly believe in the postpartum “nest”. The “nest” is a cozy, quiet space where you and your baby are getting to know each other for the very first time. It’s the place where you and your baby’s only job is to eat, sleep and learn to breastfeed together.
One Hour In-Home Consultation
I will asses one feeding with you and your baby and give you feedback on positioning and latch improvement. Having a proper latch will ensure good milk transfer and relieve cracked or sore nipples.
We will discuss any goals or challenges you may have and create a solution and plan that’s easy to follow from home.
We will discuss what it looks like if you’re returning to work and talk all things pumping and milk storage.
I am available for you by call/text after our visit for continued help and encouragement.
