Having your first baby in 2020/2021 brings it's own set of

challenges & anxieties. 

I am convinced that pregnant parents & their families need support now more than ever. That is why I've adapted to offer THREE flexible packages to support as many families as possible!

PREGNANCY SUPPORT

I absolutely love supporting families during their pregnancy all the way to baby's first smile! Pregnancy is amazing and wonderful; but it can also be filled with anxiety, uncertainty and questions. As wonderful of a tool that google can be, it can also be a terrifying one. That's why I tell families to let me be their google! It is part of my job to be educated and informed on the most up to date best practices, evidence and studies for all things pregnancy related. And while I am certainly not your clinical care support, I can support you as become more informed about t what your options might be and what questions you can ask your healthcare provider. 

 

  • Phone, Text & Email Support throughout your pregnancy.

  • Feeling unsure about what to put on your registry? Feeling overwhelmed and just need some emotional support? Curious if you may be in early labour & unsure of what to do/who to call? Send me an email and let me support you through it all!

BIRTH SUPPORT: IN PERSON
AND/OR VIRTUAL

Early Labour Support:

  • On call phone and text support to support you and your partner as you navigate the often confusing stages of early labour

  • Support with understanding what is normal 

  • Practical tips on how to alternate activity with rest during this important stage

Active Labour Support

  • 24/7 continuous support, whether done in person, virtually or via phone/text support

  • Comfort measures, counter pressure  points and real time maternal position suggestions to aid in baby's descent through the pelvis, massage work and guidance via breath work

  • Support during the pushing stage with breath work and positions 

  • Support during a caesarean birth by explaining what to expect, suggestions of questions to ask, emotional support for both the birthing parent and their partner

  • Support with baby's first feeding and reminders of what to expect over the following 2-3 days

3 VIRTUAL POSTPARTUM VISITS

Postpartum Support is so important and such a vital part of my support. All of the preparation that you and your support team has done can finally be put to practical use. Which is exciting but can also be overwhelming and exhausting! I believe families need just as much support after their baby arrives as they do throughout their pregnancy, labour and birth. After your baby arrives, I will:

 

  • Visit you once in the first two weeks after your babe’s arrival OR virtually support you with 3 virtual visits

  • Provide infant feeding help, give tips on how to best read your baby's cues, answer any and all questions you have, connect you to great resources provided by experienced professionals in your area when needed 

  • Continue to make myself available for continued daytime phone and text support for four weeks after your birth 

  • Provide emotional support through the ups and downs of adjusting to life with a newborn: sleep interruption, hormonal fluctuations, feeling unsure or anxious and anything else that comes up
