My wholistic services are designed to prepare parents for conception, pregnancy, birth & postpartum. Having a baby IS a big deal and changes the dynamics of a household. Many families report feeling alone and unprepared for all the changes that having a baby brings. Hiring a doula is associated with families experiencing less stress and more satisfaction with their birth experience. I will support you on your journey so that you can feel prepared for and supported on your birth journey.
Holistic Fertility Doula Support
A Holistic Fertility Doula is a professionally trained person trained to support a woman during her preconception period to help prepare her body for pregnancy. The Holistic Fertility Doula supports natural remedies, recommendations, emotional support, and guidance during this time. A Holistic Fertility Doula is trained to look at varying factors that are prohibiting conception and make the necessary recommendations in specific areas to enhance the chances of fertility. There is no time limit in working with a woman during this period, unlike other aspects of Doula work. Holistic Fertility Doulas are not responsible for pregnancy outcomes. Must commit to a minimum of 3 months.
