My goal is to help you choose the best options for you and your baby, so that you can become the parent you want to be while enjoying the process, stress-free.

We’ll begin with an initial phone or skype consultation so I can get to know you and determine your needs. From there, I’ll create a customized pregnancy, birth, and postpartum plan that will cater to your unique personality, desires, and lifestyle. Finally, we’ll set up a plan-of-action so that you actually implement the plan and get the most benefit from my services.

I can help you answer the following questions:

  • What type of birth do you wish to have?
  • How should you prepare for your ideal birth?
  • What are your options for labor and birth care?
  • How do you create a birth plan?
  • What classes should you take?
  • What coping strategies will work for you during childbirth?
  • For queer families, what typical challenges might you encounter as part of being pregnant and becoming a parent in our heteronormative culture?
  • Is your house ready for your baby?
  • How can you relax and enjoy your pregnancy?
  • Will you benefit from a doula?
  • How do you create a newborn care plan?
  • How can you make your home safe for baby?
  • How can you green-proof your home?
  • How will you feed your baby?
  • If you want to nurse your baby, what nursing support will you require?
  • If you are a non-gestational parent, how can you induce lactation to feed your baby?
  • How will you cope when your initial support is gone?
