In addition to being a Hypnobabies® Childbirth Hypnosis Doula, I am also a DONA trained Birth Doula and Wise Woman Way of Birth certified Birth Doula. I am a Childbirth Educator and have a considerable lending library of books and DVDs available to my clients. I am trained to use aromatherapy, acupressure and rebozo during birth. I have experience with highly medicalized birth including supporting birthing women through induction and during and after Caesarian section. However, I specialize in supporting women in physiological birth, particularly undisturbed birth at home. For those considering a home birth I have an Aquaborn birth pool available for my clients' use during their birthing time.
I am a Sacred Postpartum certified Mother Roaster and Sacred Baby certified Mama & Baby Circle Leader. For the new mother I conduct initiation ceremonies such as a Closing the Bones ceremonial Tuck-in, Bengkunk Belly Binding, yoni steams, ceremonial baths, and birth story sealing journals. For the postpartum period I provide breastfeeding counselling, nourishing foods, herbal tinctures and teas, along with a line of body products for mom and baby that I make under the banner of Artemis Botanicals. I provide gentle guidance on baby-centric care of your newborn following attachment parenting principles such as babywearing, co-sleeping, baby-led breastfeeding, biological nurturing, infant massage, baby-led weaning, and cooking for the new family.
I am super energized and into birth and birthing women, and I’m dedicated to helping them realize their dream birth. You need to dream it first, and I will do my very best to help you prepare and support you along the way! Using Hypnobabies Hypnosis for childbirth is an excellent way to achieve an easy, comfortable and joyous birth. I am trained and comfortable in supporting you along this journey. I am amazed by the power of women's bodies, the state of bliss following birth and the satisfaction and personal growth that can come with this life changing event.
My goal is to support you, and the people that you choose to include at your birth. I will support your birthing time decisions, and given the considerable honour of sharing this special time with you, bear witness to your birth. All women have the strength, instinctual knowledge and the power necessary to birth their babies. Every pregnancy is different, every person has autonomy over their body, every soul is sacred, and I believe every birth should be a blue moon birth.
