Unlimited phone and email support from the time you hire me
Prenatal Visits: Our first meeting will be an informal interview to see if we are a good fit for one another. Following that, we will have 2-3 additional visits depending on your specific needs. I am happy to conduct these in your home, or attend an appointment or class with you should you prefer. These visits are used to determine your birth goals, provide any information or resources you may need, discuss comfort measures, and to talk in general about your upcoming birth.

"Attending births is like growing roses. You have to marvel at the ones that just open up and bloom at the first kiss of the sun, but you wouldn't dream of pulling open the petals of the tightly closed buds and forcing them to blossom to your time line."
