hospital birth optimization consult
While hospitals are the most common setting parents choose for the birth of their babies, there are many interventions that exist there, unbeknownst to the general public. Many of these practices are not evidence-based and do not serve mothers or babies. As a birth worker, I too often hear some version of, “I had no idea I could decline or ask for XYZ during my birth,”. My goal is to proactively educate parents so that they feel confident advocating for themselves. I attend births in the hospital on a case by case basis, but am always happy to provide you with all the information necessary to fully understand the hospital birth and postpartum experience and the choices you have as parents. I believe you deserve to enter your birthing time with all the knowledge you can gather to support your family’s wellbeing. I’m happy to offer these 90-minute consultations in your home or via video call for $100.
Home birth support
I would be honored to walk with you through your pregnancy and birth journeys. If you feel that you’d like more support for yourself and your partner during these times, I’m here to help! Contact me here for more details.
Once your baby has arrived earthside, you’ll likely need or want some support in one or more of these categories: — household tidying — baby care — mother care — breastfeeding — sleeping arrangements — birth processing —nourishing foods. I am happy to provide a listening ear or quietly tidy up while your family rests together. I enjoy learning about your parenting style and laughing with you about your baby’s sweet quirks. My daytime rate is $35/hr with a minimum 4 hour shift. I have limited availability to work with clients on a sliding scale as needed, so please feel free to reach out if you feel we’re a good fit but need some flexibility with payment.
