The Birth Well
A suite of offerings specially designed to educate, celebrate and support  you on your birthing journey 
Childbirth Consultations
I provide referrals for midwives (homebirth or hospital based), doctors, doulas, complementary health care providers, birth and parenting classes, books, and other resources.
I help you envision where you would like to give birth, whether it be in a hospital, birth center or your own home.
I assist families in cultivating the tools they need to safely welcome their babies in a peaceful and loving way.
I listen to your concerns, answer questions, offer suggestions, and support your pregnancy and birth in a way that is unique for you.
Call or email to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation during which I can answer a few questions or provide you with information about how I can support you during your pregnancy.
We will then schedule a 60-minute visit after which I will provide you with a customized resource list. 

Some of the most commonly discussed topics:

  * Understanding the nature of giving birth

This is a private consultation between myself and the birthing family. 

Once you are pregnant the information can be overwhelming. Perhaps the most difficult part of early pregnancy is understanding the different choices you have, and grasping the pros and cons of each option. I can help you to sift through the information, clarify confusing points, and help you to reach informed decisions about what is right for you and your family. Make this time easier by getting an unbiased and balanced explanation.
