This booking is for the initial visit to determine whether we are a good fit for each other. ~ Philosophy of Support ~ I believe that pregnancy and birth are sacred, fundamentally normal, physiological processes. I commit to respect and protect the birth space, allowing labor to take its normal course, in order to help each woman birth naturally, safely and confidently. A laboring woman needs to feel private, safe, and unobserved, and as such I work hard to provide subtle but effective support, only as needed and desired. Essential components of holistic care include attentive, skilled, and evidence-based support, establishing a caring atmosphere, educating clients as requested, and respecting, above all else, the rights of the pregnant woman to make decisions about her own care. ~ Brief Overview ~ My birth support services include lifestyle (stress management, exercise, nutrition) and childbirth education along with practical and emotional/spiritual support for you, your baby, and your partner during your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum time. This offering includes aspects of my ceremony coordination services, should you be interested. The details of this service will be shared and discussed at our initial meeting as the needs of every woman, family, and pregnancy are unique. I serve the Bitterroot Valley (Ravalli County) and Missoula County, Montana. If you are outside of this area and hoping to work with me, please reach out! I am happy to listen and see if we can't figure out a solution via virtual support or other creative avenues.
The donation required for any meeting is non-refundable unless you are unable to attend and have given me at least 24-hour notice. If extenuating circumstances prevented you from attending, I will gladly credit you for a future appointment (at my discretion).
