Birth Doula • Somatic Practitioner
...this very body that we have, that's sitting here right now, with its aches and its pleasures ...is exactly what we need to be fully Human, fully awake, fully alive - pema chodron
Pre-Covid, I would typically meet you in your home for pre and postnatal visits and attend your birth for in person hands on support.
Given the risks and realities inherent to our current pandemic, I am generally doing all pre and postnatal visits via zoom and saving my in person, hands-on support for labor. When appropriate and requested by clients, I am open to offering in person socially distanced pre and postpartum visits, ideally outside.
Several of my clients have opted for remote support to minimize their exposure to Covid-19 - leading me to further develop my role as advocate which can be done both safely and remotely throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey. This option also offers cost savings as well as increases accessibility to my services, allowing me to support clients outside of my physical location.
I have regular access to back up doulas if my own availability should become compromised through suspected exposure to/from anyone in my ‘bubble’ to ensure the upmost safety for my clients.
