Whatever your path is for giving birth; hospital, birth center, or homebirth,

Your perinatal wellness heavily depends on how your community welcomes and supports your parenting journey.
My commitment is to shift the current paradigm into a new reality where parents are supported in reverence. I hold the vision of a community that fully understands that the sacred work of parenting demands a tremendous out flow of physical, emotional, and spiritual energy and places parents doing this sacred work as the most valuable contributors of the community.

Family and Community Care
Part of my service is to connect with your community/family support, as they are the pillars of your wellness. Their understanding of your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs is crucial for you to thrive in your perinatal sacred work. I offer you and your family/community a two-day program (3 hrs each) for them to step into their roll informed and connected to your process. Ideally we do this prenatally.
