Serving People in the Denver Metro Area
I will meet with you and your partner twice before your estimated due date. Each meeting can last up to 2 hours depending on your needs. The first meeting usually consists of us getting to know each other and discussing what type of birth you’d like to have. I can help you write a birth plan and provide any information needed to help you make informed decisions.
The second meeting will be to practice comfort measures and put a plan in place for when you are in labor. This is when we will go over your birth choices in depth, so that you feel confident before labor begins.
In between and after visits I am available for non-urgent phone calls, emails or texts between 8:00am and 8:00pm.
Once we decide you are ready for me to join you in labor, I will come to your home, hospital or birth center. During this time I will work hard to give you and your partner comfort, help create a safe space and remind you of your birth wishes. Should an unforeseen situation arise, I will do my best to help guide you through it. I remain with you during your entire labor and up to 1 hour after the birth. When the baby is born I can help you get started with breastfeeding if necessary.
Should your labor be exceedingly long or I have a family emergency, I will have a backup doula in place. You are welcome to meet them at any time.
My care doesn’t end after the birth of your baby. As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I offer in home visits to assess common breastfeeding problems and will work with you to ensure your breastfeeding journey goes smoothly.
