Birth and Postpartum Services

As a certified birth/labor and postpartum doula, as well as a Mother Roaster, I offer several different services. I work on a sliding scale basis, contact me to learn more.

 

Sacred Herbal Doula: 600- to 800-

This doula package includes:

  • 2 prenatal appointments
  • Doula care for your birth
  • 2 hours immediate postpartum support
  • 1 postpartum home visit
  • Herbalist support during pregnancy for ailments that arise*

Our prenatal appointments are for us to get to know each other and review some of the comfort techniques used in labor and delivery. I encourage my clients to read through Sacred Pregnancy by Anni Daulter to prepare for the big emotional/mental/spiritual change of pregnancy and childbirth.

At the 600- level, you get all the doula care listed above.

At the 700- level, that adds in all the herbal support during pregnancy and postpartum

At the 800- level, you get all the add ons: Postpartum Moxa, Postpartum Abdominal press, Sacred Belly Bind

 

Cesarean Doula Support: 200-

While vaginal deliveries are ideal, there are many times when it isn't the safest or viable option. Moms wanting or needing a cesarean delivery deserve doula care too.

In this package, moms receive:

  • 1 prenatal visit
  • 1 hours pre-cesarean support (to include supporting the partner!)
  • 2 hours post-cesarean support and breastfeeding help
  • 2 postpartum home visits
 

Hourly Postpartum Doula Care: 25-

This is available for moms once they return home and includes some of the following services:

  • Light housekeeping
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Newborn care
  • Herbal postpartum recovery options

Those booking 10+ hours receive a discounted rate.

 

Postpartum Moxa Therapy: 30-

This warming therapy is a healing tradition from Chinese medicine. I use two types of moxa during this therapy- smokeless, and loose. It lasts 15-20 minutes long. Done in your home.

 

Postpartum Hot Stone Abdominal Press: 30-

This 20 minutes "press" is an herbal rub with warm (wrapped) stone to help bring postpartum healing. This is done in your home.

 

Sacred Belly Bind: 50- to 125-

The art of wrapping the mother postpartum encourages the uterus to shrink down, dispel trapped air and water, and physically support the abdomen and back of a postpartum mother. Price varies due to if you are purchasing the bind your self. This is 3 wrapping sessions, spaced 1-2 days apart for 1 week.

Sacred Herbal Doula clients wanting this add on must purchase their own wrap.

 

Postpartum Herbal Consult: 60-

This is different than the Postpartum Care because here I come in my herbalist hat and work with you on taking care of yourself with herbs....from after pains to breastfeeding herbs. This also includes a 4.0 ounce package of our Rose Herbal Sitz Bath. I like this scheduled within the first two weeks postpartum so I can get you set up right away.

 

Ceremonies: varies

I offer a variety of ceremonies for pregnant mothers and postpartum mothers. These are as unique as the mothers they are for so please contact me for more information and pricing.

Ceremonies include:

  • Blessingways (baby shower alternative)
  • Sealing ceremonies
  • Sacred bath ceremonies
  • Tea ceremonies
  • And more......
