The Heart of Touch Massage & Birth Support provides birth support to families or individuals up to 30 miles away. I will attend home or hospital births. Birth support also known as doula services include:

  • A free consultation
  • Two prenatal visits to your home. Here we will discuss any and all dreams, fears, birth plans(if you choose to have one), health, wellness, how you manage pain, stress, and different laboring positions/comfort measures. This will allow us time to get to know each other & how I can best service you on your birth journey.
  • Unlimited phone, email communication/support during your journey.
  • On call 24/7 two weeks prior to your birth-date until the baby is born.
  • Discounted massage for mama and partner durning the pregnancy.
  • I provide uninterrupted presence for your labor and birth support. I will stay with you until after the baby is born.
  • I can assist with breastfeeding.
  • I will provide a postpartum visit within two weeks of the birth.
  • I offer private or group childbirth education classes.

I offer a sliding scale between $1000-$1350 for birth doula services. Upon signing a contract, half the amount is due. I attend 1-2 births a month, this will reserve your date. The remaining half is due within 5 days after the birth or anytime before this if you wish. I am flexible with payment plans, I am open to bartering, I accept cash, checks and credit cards. I am committed to making my services available to as many families as possible.

BlessingWay Ceremony:
The Mother's Blessing Ceremony, also known as The Blessingway or Blessing Way Ceremony originates from the Navajo people. It is a very positive ritual, affirming that a woman will have a natural and beautiful birth experience. The ceremony marks a woman's rite of passage. It is a ceremony of empowerment near the time of birthing. Within a circle of friends in a quiet, gentle, spiritual ceremony, those attending will celebrate sisterhood, welcome a new baby to earth and honor mother, birth life and rebirth.

There are many forms of Mother's Blessing Ceremonies and this modern ritual can be molded to your "style". The Ceremony can be short or long, incorporating many rituals or a few. Parts, such as the Birth Bead ritual, can easily be incorporated into a Baby Shower.

Placenta Encapsulation:
Placenta encapsulation allows a mother to consume her placenta in the form of capsules. There are amazing benefits to ingesting your placenta. Your placenta can be prepared in several ways, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Raw, Tinctures, and balm.

  • Preventing and lessening the risk of postpartum depression or 'baby blues'
  • Replenishing your iron from blood loss during birth and to prevent post birth anemia
  • Lending you a consistent flow of oxytocin long after your birth euphoria ends
