  • On call - starting two weeks before your expected due date, until you have your baby.

  • Birth Prep Workshop - Up to 3 hours. We will go through my childbirth education guide that I've made up (look over your birth options and preferences, go over the role of your husband/partner, talk about labouring positions, comfort measures, what to expect, concerns you have, and more).

  • Body Prep Workshop - 1 hour - 1.5 hours in your home. We go through my stretching guide to help bring balance to your pelvis, to encourage optimal fetal positioning and engagement.

  • Birth - I will be by your side from the time you call me (I’ll meet you either at your home or the hospital), until one to two hours after the birth of your baby, providing breastfeeding support if you choose, make sure you’ve had something to eat, and answer any questions you may have.

  • Optional postpartum visit - to go over your birth experience, answer any questions you may have, I can also do a bit of light cleaning, or snuggle a baby while you nap!

  • Backup doula - can be your choice or mine, based on availability. Feel free to check out the Red Deer Doula Association, or I will choose someone for you.

  • Client section - Access to the client section of my website, which is full of helpful guides, diagrams and resources, including my stretching guide, early labour guide, breastfeeding and postpartum guides, and more!
