Empowered Perks

One extra visit

This two-hour visit may be used before of after birth as a prenatal consultation, birth consultation, postpartum consultation, or lactation counseling.  This is especially useful if you have had a previous loss or if everything is not going as smoothly as you’d hoped in the final few weeks of pregnancy.

Gift collection

This collection includes the perfect birth ball, a copy of a book of your choice from my Recommended Reading List, a ring set to turn your rebozo into a ring sling, a bottle of labor massage oil, a healing organic herbal sitz bath, and a surprise treat for your baby!

Super perks

These super perks are so amazing that they count as two!  Options include:

Hospital Discharge Concierge*

The day you go home with your baby can be a little stressful. With hospital discharge concierge, you can kick back and relax with your new baby! I’ll meet you at the hospital when you’re ready to be discharged, pack everything that you’ll be taking with you including your and your baby’s personal items as well as any flowers, balloons, or gifts. I’ll bring your baby’s car seat back up to your room and help you learn how to get your baby in it safely. Then I’ll help your family to your vehicle and follow you to your home. Once you’re there, I’ll help you get inside and comfortable with a drink and anything else you may need before I prepare a light meal. While you’re eating, I’ll bring your bags inside and unpack for you. Before I leave I’ll wash the dishes and throw in a load of laundry for you. Don’t you feel better just thinking about it?

Pregnancy Celebration coordination (up to 5 hours)*

Pregnancy is such a special time in your life. Why not celebrate it? A pregnancy celebration is a little like a baby shower, but the focus is on the mother. We’ll work together to plan 4-6 activities for your special day such as being pampered with an honoring circle, making a special bracelet for you to wear during your birth, or inviting your friends to light a special candle during your birth to show that they’re thinking of you and wishing you a healthy, happy birth. The celebration typically lasts about two hours so we’ll have about three hours to discuss all of your options and plan exactly what you want. Women who’ve experienced this ritual (which is also known as a mother blessing ceremony or Blessing Way) say that it’s one of the single most moving and empowering experiences of their lives.
