what do you mean by...
grounded in science
In my work with families, I rely heavily on my background in Human Development and its foundations in psychology, sociology, biology & anthropology.
Examining the perinatal period from many angles allows for a deeper understanding of what is happening, and why.
room for all
I'm here to provide support for individuals & families navigating any and
every outcome of pregnancy & feeding. I also offer doula & lactation support for a full spectrum of human beings. The goal is for you to have the perfect fit & style of care...if it's not me, I will do my best to help you find your person!
you know your family best
My job is to support you in finding your own way forward as a family.
When following your lead, I can provide resources,
offer ideas, and discuss options for
complementary support. My ultimate goal is always for families to find a way of being and growing that feels right to them.
Speaking of Evidence....
The folks at Evidence Based Birth have compiled the research on doulas. Using a birth doula results in:
39% decrease in the risk of Cesarean;
15% increase in the likelihood of a spontaneous vaginal birth;
10% decrease in the use of any medications for pain relief;
Increase in birth satisfaction (31% decrease in the risk of dissatisfaction with the birth experience).
