-Assistance with breastfeeding and nurturing habits to set up with your baby.
-Education on the importance of the postpartum period, not only on your immediate physical and mental health, but for the post-menopausal body as well. (take care of it now, so you can continue to thrive in your later years!)
-Education on the cognitive development of infants so you can better understand how our brains are wired as little humans.
-Showing you how to set up systems of care in your home so that you can continue to THRIVE as a postpartum parent instead of just survive even after I have gone.
At this time I only do postpartum healing sessions. They are around 2-2.5 hours. They may include full body work, informational/ educational assistance, breastfeeding assistance, healing tea and/or snacks,infrared heat treatment,and a steam or sitz bath. Each healing session is $200. I will travel within 20 miles of DC with no additional charge.
*If you are unable to pay and need support, please contact me and let’s talk.*
I will keep notes during the birth, type up and print out a copy of your birth story on stationary for you to keep as a keepsake of you and your baby’s journey.
Mother’s Blessing Facilitator-Price Varies
A Blessing is an event that is planned for the family and the mother in particular. Typically close friends and family are invited to bring gifts and to pamper and prepare her mentally and energetically for birth.
I have extensive experience planning and implementing Blessings for expectant families. I have developed many group activities that bring guests closer as well as affirm and nurture the family. I can help you develop a program and activities that align with your personal beliefs while creating connection and ritual with your guests.
The initial consultation is free.
Fee is determined by the amount of in-person facilitation during the actual event to include set-up/decoration, coordination of entertainment/food, guided activities, and assistance with clean up. I am not responsible for the price of food or entertainment, but will help you to coordinate these services within your budget.
