my deep call to birth work started with knowing that our bodies, as women and birthing folk, are innately knowledgeable and intuitive. an empowered birth experience brings us back to this. i am in service to women (and their partners), so that they may experience their birth feeling safe, supported, and empowered, no matter what their preferences are. i am here to support whether that’s in a hospital with an epidural or at home with a midwife. every birthing woman comes from an epic lineage of birthing women. i honor this transformational transition in a women’s life with deep reverence and i adapt to meet her (and her partner’s) needs.
as a shamanic reiki practitioner, i am sensitive to the nuances of such an intimate environment and i believe that holding space is a gentle act. i bring such qualities, along with humor, education, and broadmindedness to all my clients. every birth is different and every birthing person has different preferences. it's all about informed decision making: education + intuition. currently, i am near finishing my DONA Certification. i am a Birth Worker supporting Hypnobirthing and embarking on a Spinning Babies intensive.
i provide support to birthing people and their partners from the moment of hire. whether you need guidance on resources, have general questions, or just want to share. we will meet for 2 hours of prenatal visits (and an optional reiki session). i am here to support throughout the entire journey, from pregnancy through delivery. from 37-42 weeks i am on call 24/7 to chat on the phone or text whether you have a question, need resource guidance, would just like to share something, or are going into labor. i am bring my full authenticity, groundedness and presence to all my clients. i am in service to you with absolutely no agenda.
