It's wonderful you're exploring home-birth! Whether it's your first birth, your first home-birth, or your first undisturbed birth, let's connect.
At our connection meetings, you're introduced to the concept of woman-owned free-birth. Imagine birthing in full bodily autonomy with your own innate wisdom as your supreme and sole guide.
At these meetings we build a relationship of trust as you explore biological birth.
-the polar difference between medical system-owned and woman-owned birth
-what to expect during the birth process
-your dream birth
-the mom-baby unit
-emergence of your baby to birth of your placenta
- logistics such as child-care, a non-disruptive support team, supplies, and more.
You may become that wild woman birthing ecstatically in her birth high. Your baby may emerge from your body and stay undisturbed in her/his true home-YOU.
While this package is designed for people considering woman-owned birth, the tools may be applied to medically-managed pregnancy and delivery.
You may have questions, been told outright "no" you cannot home-birth, been risked out of medical midwife care, or need more information to assess if home-birth is for you. All this is sorted out at our prenatal connection meetings.
Any woman may own her own birth. Should you seek the presence of a wise-woman, then I may walk with you as your birthkeeper.
I operate withing the scope of IPPA, am blood-born pathogens certified, and have encapsulated over 30 placentas. $250 is reduced rate for full-pay birth doula clients.
Presence at your labor and birth without prenatals and postpartum visits, and limited electronic time. I suggest this for people who have had only positive birth experiences and have plenty of postpartum help lined up. Must be paid in full at contract signing.
We talk 1:1 virtually or in person at your home for 75 minutes.
You share your birth story with me, according to YOU, the birthing woman.
This may be the first time you shared your story in full authenticity.
You may need to fully feel the deep wound in your body caused by the robbing of your birth.
You may move toward healing.
You may shift.
This is different from counseling. It's outside the medical system. This is a heart to heart encounter. I may use reflective listening, awareness of triggers, and other tools. This is for you to talk, scream, cry, or anything, on your own terms.
