Labor & Birth

  • Early Labor: welcoming labor, grounding, intention setting & logistics check in (Did anyone turn up the water heater for the birth tub? Call the midwife? Birth partner call out of work? Is there enough food/ hydration to support the laboring beings?...)

    • in person or via zoom or phone  

      • We love to connect with you as labor starts, to help "set the stage."

      • After doing so, we often step out so that you can enjoy some time to connect with your partner and other children, if applicable, before the expansion of your family.  We are available to be present if needed/desired.  

  • Active Labor & Birth: physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual support. 

    • in person or via zoom 

      • Our clients often prefer our presence once labor becomes rhythmic and requires the focused attention of the birthing being (in person or via zoom).  

      • We have many tools in our belts to support labor and birth.  Each birth is different and asks something different of all involved.  We tailor our offerings to what the birthing being, baby, and environment seem to be asking of us.  Some of our tools include:

        • maintaining calm presence, sustained connection with the birthing being, positional changes and support, rebozo, counter pressure, massage/touch, breathing techniques, aromatherapy, nutrition/hydration mindfulness, environment adjustments (eg lighting, smells, sounds, minding who is present), etc...
