Services - Doula support, Relaxation/Meditation, and Yoga (private or semi-private) classes

Individual packages can be customized, a typical package would include:

- 3 prenatal visits
- unlimited phone and email support
- on-call support in the last weeks of your pregnancy beginning at ~38 weeks until you go into labour
- available throughout late stages of labour and birth 
- remain with you for at least 1 hour following the birth of your baby to help initiate feeding
- remain with you for at least 1 hour following the birth of your baby to help initiate feeding
- 3 postpartum visits (including continuous phone and email support) 

Upon request I can provide extended postpartum care for as long as needed, including:

- overnight stays
- hands-on breastfeeding support
- caring for baby or other small children so you can have some ALONE time
- light housework (i.e. dishes, babies laundry)
- meal preparation
- unlimited email and phone support to answer any questions or just listen

I am also a certified YOGA teacher and although I am beginning to work in the pregnancy aspect of it I can work with you (upon the approval of your care giver) in developing an individual practice:

 - outline positions that are safe and beneficial
- relaxation and meditation techniques (including yoga nidra)
- mantras and affirmations

If you have a group of friends and can provide the space, group yoga classes (semi-private) are also an option.

I will provide you with as much information as you need and would like, if you prefer more individualized instruction (such as yoga meditation or prolonged postpartum care) this will be a charge on top of my regular doula fees.
