SERVICES OFFERED

Every client's needs are different and I hope to serve accordingly.  In general, my services begin in the third trimester meeting the expectant parents, offering prenatal education, and establishing a birth plan. Then I will be with mother and partner for the entire labor. After baby arrives I will be available for a short time at the hospital or other birth location and then I will follow-up during the first few weeks.
