A postpartum doula is a wonderful resource that can help you transition to parenthood. Postpartum doulas provide emotional, physical, and evidence-based informational support to families after the birth of their baby. Let a postpartum doula support you through baby's first bath, trimming baby's nails, and learning your newborn's cues. You deserve support! Contact me for a free consultation. I encourage all clients to reach out to several doulas to find the person who will be the best fit for your growing family.
Lactation and feeding support
The art of breastfeeding may be natural but it isn’t instinctual. Many find themselves needing a bit of support both while both mother and baby learn to breastfeed, and at different stages of the breastfeeding relationship. I am a Registered Nurse and a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) trained by Healthy Children's Center for Breastfeeding in 2016. I am also educated about safe bottle preparation and alternate feeding techniques. Currently I await the results of my International Board Certified Lactation Consultant exam after completing the required studies and clinical hours to become an IBCLC. I currently have over 1,000 clinical hours serving breastfeeding mothers at Community Memorial Hospital’s New Parent Resource Center.
I am an intuitive reiki practitioner and include intuitive reiki sessions as an option in all postpartum packages to help mother and baby heal from the birth process. Reiki healing is used to balance the client's energy field and chakras in order to enhance the body's ability to naturally heal itself. Reiki sessions may include the use of healing crystals and essential oils, at the discretion of the client, and take place on a massage table while calming music plays. Clients can expect light touch, blowing air to move energy, or light tapping during treatments. Many report sensations of warm energy and calm relaxation.
