Birth Consultation

$50 | 90 mins

Not even sure where to start? You’re not alone! Start with a birth consultation.

I would love to meet with you and start the conversation around what your individual birth goals are. Let’s talk about how we can set you up in the most successful way. Who is your care provider and are you comfortable with the level of care you’re receiving? Where are you planning to deliver? Does that facility have all of the resources you might need during your labor and delivery? What does your birth team look like? Is a doula right for you and what does doula support look like anyway? What childbirth education courses are you taking? Hospital tour? What books should you be reading, or not reading? What other local resources might you need during pregnancy, birth and postpartum? Let me share my local experience and network of specialists with you. We’ll start by answering these questions and boost your confidence going in, I want you to love your birth!

If it turns out a doula is right for you and you’d like me to support you I’ll apply your consult fee to my Birth Doula Services Package!

Lactation Support

$75/hour

As a Certified Lactation Counselor through ALPP I am happy to offer lactation counseling support to anyone needing additional breastfeeding help. I can help address many common breastfeeding issues including: latch, positions, pumping advice, the schedule, supply issues, clogged ducts, blebs, let down concerns, fussy at the breast babies and more. I am happy to come to you at home, we can meet in my office, or I can come to you at the hospital. Let’s do an in person assessment and come up with an achievable game plan that feels right for you.

Let's make your breastfeeding journey successful!
