Fee Details

The support I offer is tailored to my clients' needs during their childbearing, birthing and parenting journeys. During labor we may use meditation, breathe, visualization, rebozo, position changes, as well as hands on techniques including massage for natural pain management. My holistic approach includes supporting the family, including any birth partners who may be present. We use meditation-influenced techniques, intuition and simple mindset shifts to guide us in our approach, while drawing from my experience as an educator to utilize practical, evidence-based, hands-on, grounded tools and to support an empowering, and progressive labor. Offering Labor Doula Packages, Breastfeeding and Postpartum Support, Reiki sessions, Traditional Belly-Binding & Diastasis Recti education, Birth Sealing Ceremony, Yoni Steaming, Mother Blessing Celebrations, as well as Childbirth education (Workshops, group and private in-home classes).

At the beginning of my pregnancy I planned on having a home birth. Yet, at 18 weeks I found out I was carrying twins. With guidance from Jess, I then opted to deliver at a birthing centre. In the end,due to possible risk factors I had to deliver at the hospital.

Jess was extremely present and adaptable throughout my entire pregnancy journey.
She reassured me when I was in doubt and was committed to educating me and preparing me for my delivery. She was especially helpful with the changes that occurred now that we were dealing with a multiple pregnancy and a hospital birth.

All this to say, I had a beautiful birthing experience. I felt that I was well prepared for the birth of my babies. Like a great coach, Jess gave me the proper tools and confidence that led me to the finish line as a soon to be mama. She assisted me through all my stages of labor. When my contractions were at their peak and I was feeling beyond overwhelmed she knew exactly how to smooth me. She used breathing techniques and imagery that really kept me present and at peace. She was also a strong force during my pushing phase. She literally held my hand through it all and for that I am forever grateful.

I will most definitely work with her again.
I recommend her to any woman looking for a serene, educational, safe and loving pregnancy/ birth experience.
