Fee Details: My philosophy on birth and the postpartum period is simple! We are designed to handle labor and childbirth, and evidence-based research constantly reminds us of this fact. Outside pressures and social norms of the developed world often have us questioning our abilities to birth our children without medical interventions. With strong a support system, education, and advocacy women are capable of accomplishing empowering and rewarding births! Family transitions are exceptionally difficult in today’s day and age! Often new parents lack support or resources to care for their new baby while practicing self-care and juggling other important responsibilities. My postpartum services aim to alleviate many of the stressors of bringing home a baby by providing household support and infant care education.
