Frequently Asked Questions

How many clients do you take per month?

I calendar one to two clients per month, in order to allow for maximum personal attention to each one.


What happens if two clients go into labor at the same time?

I have a wonderful doula partner. In that unlikely event, she will attend the second birth in my stead.


Do you have children?

Yes, I have four. Each baby came with it's own unique birth story. My experiences help me to be empathetic and compassionate as I support you.


What do you do to help me at the birth?

I utilize many comfort measures including massage, positioning, visualization, acupressure, aromatherapy, and hydrotherapy (just to name a few). Also, there are many special "tools" in my birth bag.

What if I want to use medication?

You need to have the birth experience that you will be most comfortable with. If you choose to use medication, I will explain the benefits, risks, and optimal usage.

What is included for the cost of your services?

The fee for my birth services covers two prenatal meetings, the complete birth and one postpartum meeting. Additional services may include further lactation support, postpartum care, newborn massage instruction or Happiest Baby on the Block consultation for an additional fee.
