Let's Brighten Your Birth!
As a Lamaze International Certified Childbirth Educator, I aim to improve birth outcomes with fun and engaging prenatal education based in current evidence.
As a DONA International Certified Doula, I provide resource and educational support during pregnancy. I remain present during the duration of labor & birth providing emotional and hands-on care. I take pride in providing individualized services for growing families from preconception through weaning.
Everything under the Sun
With all of my services you can expect compassionate, respectful and reliable care. I aim to meet your individual needs through genuine human connection, trust and open communication throughout your childbearing years.
DONA International Certified Birth Doula Support
Prenatal informational support and positive birth planning to improve your birth memories – which evidence proves last a lifetime! Continuous physical and emotional support throughout labor, birth and the immediate postpartum period as well as early breastfeeding initiation encouragement when desired.
Lamaze Childbirth Education
I utilize many trusted resources, including Lamaze International to develop and continually update a fun and informative, 4 week long Childbirth Education series. I also offer classes to educate other people in a pregnant woman’s entire family; no matter their individual dynamics. Elder Updates, Sibling Integration, and breastfeeding classes (to name a few!) enhance the pregnancy and birth experience for everyone involved in the birthing person’s circle of support.
Postpartum Doula Care
Nurturing new and repeat parents with in-home care and unbiased support of their evolving parenting styles and decisions post birth. I inspire confidence by demonstrating newborn care skills, soothing techniques and providing breastfeeding support that can assist new Moms and babies over early hurdles. This care also helps to identify early, when professional lactation support is needed. I connect families to local & national resources addressing social, emotional & economic needs to promote life-long family bonding and growth. All of this creates a protected space for the Parents and new baby to develop a deep relationship.
Community Milk Sharing
Milk donations always welcome! Free breastmilk on a first come, first serve basis to families wishing to continue their feeding method while facing feeding challenges, NICU separation, returning to work, or any other dynamic. The breastmilk provided here is not tested for safety – intake screening questionnaire forms are utilized, and milk is shared on a good-faith and loving basis. Northern Sun Birth Services, LLC only serves as a conduit for milk sharing, and does not ensure the safety of doing so.
Borrowed Bellies Boutique
Free Maternity & Breastfeeding friendly clothing exchange consisting of brand new and gently used items available to ANY Mom of our local and surrounding communities! This unique boutique is aimed at reducing the cost of pregnancy for families, while also lowering the global impact of this high turn-over rate fashion industry! Donations are always appreciated.
A more personal space where I share experience, strength and hope through my mind, heart & written word
Path of the least...Resistance?
I wonder if they know?
