***Currently I am living in Buffalo, New York to finish my M.S. in Nutrition and my Dietetic Internship to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Due to my strict schedule I am unable to take any clients for doula work at this time.***
I am so happy to officially be offering professional labor support to women and their families at birth! I completed an intensive training with the fantastic Janine Maitri and Sierra Childbirth Institute in Sacramento, CA, December of 2017.
Currently, I am going through the DONA certification process to become a professional, skilled birth doula. The magic and tenderness of birth has always called to me and I am beyond happy to finally be pursuing this dream of mine. Combined with my background in human nutrition, I am serving women of the greater Sacramento area, acting as a resource for maternal knowledge, support, and empowerment.
My goal as a professional birth doula is to help ensure, in what ever way I can in my scope of practice, that you and your birth partner are empowered, informed and supported. Every women deserves to experience her birth fantasy, whatever that may look like to her.
The day and time of the birth of a baby is not only that, but also the birth of a mother, and a new family. To be in attendance of such an event is an absolute honor.
Birth Doula Services
As your birth doula, I will provide you with physical and emotional support. I will also act as a resource for information and referrals as needed. Each woman and family is unique and so services may be tailored to meet your individual needs, however my services will always include:
Two Prenatal Visits
Phone Call/Text/Email Support
On Call 24/7 Two Weeks Before Due Date
Continuous Labor Support
One Postpartum Visit
This list is a minimum. I am willing to accept payments plans for those who need them, as I believe that income level should not be the only thing keeping someone from having a birth doula. My current pricing is discounted seeing as I am still in my certification process. If you would like to hire me as your birth doula or have any questions regarding price or my services, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
