We will start with a complimentary 30 minute virtual or in-person consultation to meet, answer any questions, and decide if we would work well together.
You’ll have phone, text, and email communication with me to discuss your options, prepare for your milestones, and process your experiences.
I’ll create a customized
You’ll receive informational pamphlets to help you stay informed with evidence surrounding birth and your birth choices, and all of the great resources in the Cincinnati area surrounding birth and postpartum.
I’ll meet you with a minimum of two prenatal visits:
The first visit talks about evidence in birth, informed decision making, which choices in pregnancy, labor, and birth are your preferences, and what the birthing person's desires are in the case of an unexpected event.
The second visit explores birthing with confidence through position changes, comfort measures, using a birthing wrap, acupressure, massage, music, oils, reiki, and becoming in tune with your body's intuitive journey through birth.
If applicable, I will meet for a third prenatal visit to normalize a 40+ week pregnancy, reaffirm the your body and baby's wisdom, and review any choices you may be making with their care provider at this time.
During labor, I will support you in a variety of ways including informational support, physical comfort methods, mental and emotional encouragement, labor progression techniques, effective positioning, breaks for your birth partner, and working with your medical team to honor your birth preferences.
After the birth of your baby, I will provide you with immediate postpartum support to encourage bonding, assist with feeding, and care for you during this initial adjustment to new parenthood.
Within 10 days of birth, I will come to your home to offer transitional support focused on processing your birth, assisting with feeding, answering newborn care questions, and holding space for what you may be experiencing during this time.
Cincinnati Birth Photography + Doula Support
I have mastered the craft of combining doula services with birth photography together. As a highly experienced doula, there are many moments to quietly capture images that tell the story of your birth. Many doulas are happy to take photos during birth, but the main difference with me is that as a professional photographer - you will be receiving professional quality images. If you’re interested in adding doula support to your birth photography package, please contact me for discounted package rates.
