Type of practice: Solo practice

Postpartum limits/restrictions: My practice is holistic and full spectrum, and calls on my background as an herbalist, infant nanny, and energy worker to provide calm, clear, and nurturing support. I have extra lactation knowledge and feel comfortable supporting families with complex nursing/pumping journeys. I love preparing nourishing meals, and am willing to do grocery shopping. I am well versed in baby wearing, elimination communication, cloth diapering, nursing troubleshooting, navigating postpartum mood disorders, and general infant care. Although I served postpartum families prior to becoming a mother, the postpartum period has a special place in my heart after the birth of my son. This journey may be challenging, but it doesn't have to be hard- with the right support, it can even be ecstatic!

Attends hospital births? No Hospitals
I am more than happy and willing to attend hospital births upon transfer of care. I do not attend planned hospital births at this time except until special circumstances.

Attends birth center births? Some Birth Centers

Attends home births? Any Home Birth
I attend all home births, including autonomous family births.
