Sometimes when you pull your car out of your driveway, you know exactly where you’re going; but sometimes you need to consult a map before you rev the engine. In that vein, I offer a birth consultations for those in need of direction.
One-time Birth Consultation
FEE: $75 FOR 1-2 HOUR IN-PERSON MEETING OR PHONE CONSULTATION
(PLUS I CHARGE AN ADDITIONAL $5 TRAVEL FEE IF YOU LIVE FURTHER THAN 30 MILES FROM ME)
I come to your home for a 1-2 hour consultation with yourself and your main birth supporter, and I provide the wisdom, expertise, and empathy you need to prepare for your upcoming birth. We discuss your caregiver, your birth plans, any emotions that might keep you from enacting those plans, and action steps to help you to make your ideal birth a reality. After our discussion, I send you a follow-up email full of any referrals or resources that might be relevant to your situation from my extensive research surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting.
I have also provided this service for women and their partners who reside outside of the state of Colorado. If that is your situation, I would be happy to talk either via Skype or by phone, whichever you prefer.
Birth Mentor (Ongoing Support)
FEE: $250 FOR ONGOING SUPPORT VIA PHONE AND EMAIL DURING SEASONS OF PREGNANCY, CHILDBIRTH, AND 6-WEEKS POSTPARTUM
As an empathetic and well-informed birth supporter, I am constantly engaged in extensive research about all the issues that come up in pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum season, which makes me the perfect guide to join you in this exciting, unpredictable season of life.
I provide continued consulting services to you and your main birth supporter throughout the seasons surrounding your pregnancy, childbirth, and 6-weeks postpartum. During that time frame, you can email, call, or text message me with any questions or concerns, and I will get back to you within 72 hours with any relevant feedback, referrals, and resources that might be helpful to inform you about whatever has come up and to help you continue to journey toward your ideal birth plan with flexibility.
