"The child was born all pink, velvet and covered in white. In that moment, we were born too. Reborn from Maiden to Mother. Ego melted. Selfishness dusted from young shoulders. The birth, the birth of Mother is perhaps more difficult than the birth of the baby. It is felt in the bones and the blood and the spirit. It is a transformation more sacred than any other. Yet, it is often overlooked for fear of weakness. For fear of not being enough. We must allow the Mother within to swell between our ribs and fill all the empty spaces."

- Kristen Hedges

Now offering Birth + Postpartum Doula Support

What's a Birth Doula?

Birth doulas provide emotional, practical and informational support to birthing families. Doulas are masters of adaptation, seamlessly anticipating the needs of the birthing family and navigating circumstances as they arise. Doulas are able to offer help and suggestions on comfort measures, breathing, relaxation, movement and positioning. Doulas offer the birthing family with coherent presence, a compassionate heart and non judgemental space holding.

Birth doula services will be offered in Spring 2021

Communion

TBA (Prices Vary)

This is an offering straight from the depths of my heart. Communion is the sharing of intimate thoughts and feelings. It encompasses a relationship of recognition and acceptance. Allow me to be witness to all that you do and all that you are during this postpartum period of life.

This may look like the facilitation of a ceremony, releasing the past role of maiden and stepping into your new role as a mother. The opportunity to share your birth story candidly, without fear of judgment. Another option may be having me stay the night. Supporting and witnessing the strength you possess while the rest of the world sleeps. Does your partner work out of town? Are you lacking that ‘village’ vibe?  It can be deeply healing to share the events of the night with a tender heart over a warm beverage. This offering is left open and inclusive to allow flow and the ability to meet a variety of needs. Let’s connect and seek communion together.
