BIRTH SUPPORT Fee: $1200 - $1800
My birth doula fee includes the following services; 1-2 prenatal visits to establish our relationship and my role at your birth and prepare for the postpartum transition. Up to 5 weeks of continuous support and availability by phone or email (37 weeks gestation until birth). I will hold space and be actively present for the entire length of your labor, assist with postpartum bonding, help establish the breast crawl, lactation and latch coaching, provide birth photos when possible and then follow up with 2 postpartum visits to help your family transition and process your birth story.
TENS UNIT RENTAL Fee: $35
The Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Unit is an Obi TENS unit created with the pregnant laboring woman in mind. The TENS Unit is controlled by the laboring mother and has two modes of delivering electrical stimulation, continuous and pulse. In the event you would like to utilize this tool, your health care provider will need to sign a consent form.
PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION* Fee: $200-250
Placentophagy is a valuable resource for many families. This practice is said to aid with the shift of hormones and energies in the postpartum period. While the research is underway, mothers who have taken their encapsulated placenta have said they have experienced more balanced moods, increased energy and milk supply, less anxiety, speedier recovery and decreased feelings of sadness.
I took my training through Carrie Kenner at Big Belly Services and encapsulate according to Traditional Chinese Medicine Technique. I am BBP certified in accordance with the OSHA Blood Borne Pathogens Standards and also hold my SERVESafe Food Safety Management training and stay current with a Washington State Food Worker Standards.
The number of encapsulated pills produced for each client varies depending on the size of the placenta. In addition to encapsulation, I also create a placenta print and a cord keepsake for the family, at no additional cost, provided the cord is long enough to do so and those items are desired.
Like all things birth and family, placentophagy is a personal choice
PLACENTA TINCTURE* Fee: $75
Placenta tinctures are made from a piece of the placenta and 100% organic 100 proof vodka. This natural remedy can be helpful during postpartum recovery, stressful transitions, PMS, menopause and can also be used as lifelong homeopathic remedy for your child.

This offering is a sit down family portrait session with the new babe to capture all those fresh wrinkles and grimaces. Sessions last less than an hour. Edited digital prints included.
INNATE POSTPARTUM CONSULTATION Fee: $150
The postpartum time is a sacred time for the new family. The needs of a postpartum mother vary, but cultures throughout humanity carry on similar traditions: restoring heat to the mother through nourishing foods and ceremonies, a period of rest to restore and heal the body and birth processing ceremonies. I find that much of this work and systems of support need to be established before birth, by implementing self-care rituals and stocking the home with easily accessible and digestible nourishment. This is preventative care.
During our 2 hour prenatal consultation, we will get acquainted with your needs and plan for what is appropriate for your schedule, family and situation.
INNATE POSTPARTUM HEALING SESSION Fee: $100
I learned this root medicine from my training with Rachelle Garcia Seliga. Based on your story, we decide which of the nurturing INNATE postpartum traditions or rituals are suitable for your needs as a postpartum person. Current manifestations of this support include: moxibustion ceremonies, rebozo closings, birth processing meditations, yoni steams, and coaching on nourishing foods and herbs that are easily digested, build blood and assist with lactation. Sessions last 60-90 minutes.

Some folks find that their experience of childbirth and the transition to parenting can be made sweeter with a little extra help. My experience working with newborns and families over the past 20 years provides insight to troubleshooting which of the possible pathways is best for your family. I have experience with multiples, elimination communication, attachment parenting, reflux, sleep strategies, the demands of large families and much more. My goals are to bolster your confidence in your intuitive abilities and create solutions to the struggles of those first weeks as you and your family transition. Duties of Postpartum Support include meal prep and light housework, sharing knowledge of developmental stages of the newborn, newborn cues, lactation support, providing respite support, tips on postpartum healing and harmonizing the new family's dynamics, and lastly, birth processing.
