What I Offer
I offer birth ceremony support services to women and families who are choosing to birth at home and in some birth centers. I am open to supporting women who are choosing a free or unassisted birth.
We could work well together if you describe your life as a woman as sacred. You believe pregnancy, birth, postpartum and mothering are rites of passages that deserve to be acknowledged with intention and attention. You are thoughtful in your decision making, taking the time to uncover what it is that you want for yourself and your baby. You consider the benefits and risks of each decision. You feel connected to your intuition or are willing to work on that relationship with yourself. You believe you are an autonomous being. You believe your baby is an autonomous being too and has their own story to write and will consider your baby’s wants. You take responsibility for your life and your actions.

I work with Ana Burr of Primal Birth Services to offer my clients Placenta Encapsulation and Postpartum Meal Delivery.
What Does This Support Look Like?
Working with me looks like meeting multiple times (as many times as wanted, typically 3-5) in the prenatal period. In these sessions we get to know each other and I listen to what it is you are desiring out of your pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience. Each session is tailored to your wishes, we might create affirmations together, write out a birth and postpartum vision, come up with different plans, address concerns, practice yoga, practice comfort measures, set up an altar, do bodywork (1 session is included), share a meal, create birth art, do a Mother Blessing, etc. There is really so much we can do together and I aim to make these fun and enjoyable experiences with the intention of deepening your connection with yourself, your partner and your baby, most importantly. I love walking with women and their families during these transformational times. I see my role as more of a birth sister, or companion, or guide as someone who has walked this path too. I wholeheartedly believe in your ability to birth your baby.
I love offering traditional postpartum care after baby is born and you are born as a Mother. This looks like coming to visit a few days post birth. I bring a meal and my hands for a sobada and belly binding. I can also offer you Pelvic Steaming, Craniosacral Fascial Therapy and Postpartum yoga/movement. The final visit is a Postpartum Closing Ceremony. This includes: bodywork, pelvic steaming, herbal bath, closing with rebozos, belly binding, herbal tea and songs.
