Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I'm a certified birth and postpartum doula through Madriella and a certified birth & bereavement doula through Stillbirthday. I'm also a former La Leche League leader. My own births have been in a variety of settings, and I have personal experience with breastfeeding and formula feeding. As your birth doula, I provide 1-2 prenatal visits, in person support throughout your labor and birth and immediately postpartum, and 1 postpartum visit. My services include emotional support, verbal encouragement, physical support, positioning suggestions, helping you understand your options, assisting you in gathering information so you can make the right decisions for your family, guidance with newborn feeding, advocating for your choices, writing a birth plan, and much more. I'm on call for you as soon as we agree to work together. My goal is to help you feel confident and supported. Beginning in 2023, I will also be providing placenta encapsulation services. Visit my website for more information, and don't hesitate to reach out for a free consultation!

Fee Details

I offer multiple packages; see my website for details! My fee for clients who are within 60 miles of Mora is $800. Due to the additional time and expense of traveling farther, my fee for clients who live beyond my typical service area is $1000. I'm sorry, I am not able to travel to the south side of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area at this time due to the distance. I also offer a scheduled c-section package for $500. Bereavement services (miscarriage, stillbirth, and neonatal loss support) are always offered on a donation basis with no obligation.
