Postpartum Day Sessions… $200.00

  • These day sessions are personalized to meet your specific needs for that day, and are likely to differ from shift to shift. My goal is to nurture and to nourish you, facilitating rest, recovery and bonding with your baby, and growing your confidence in your intuition and your abilities, as you navigate through the early transition into parenthood. Some examples of my role may include emotional and physical support, massage, belly-binding, holding space for birth processing, guidance with breastfeeding, newborn care, and meal preparation.

SUPPORT A MAMA in Need… Suggested donation $200.00-$500.00

If you feel so inclined, with this donation, you can help me support a mother/ family that otherwise would not be able to afford doula services. I strive to gear this service toward those who may not have adequate access to support, such as POC, teenage mothers, and low-income mothers. With your donation, I am able to cover my basic costs associated with my services (i.e. gas, parking fees, childcare costs), while offering my time and services free of charge, or at a sliding scale. Please contact me for more information about this service.
