I believe that women have both the strength and ability to give birth confidently. I believe that a mom's attitude toward birth greatly impacts her experience, so we should make it positive. I believe a mom deserves to know all of her options, and to make her own choices for herself and her baby. I believe in the difference that having a doula can make. Most importantly, I believe in you.
As a professionally trained birth doula, I'm here to help you to feel ready and supported when it comes to your baby's birth. I assist in educating about birth and baby procedures, creating a birth plan, and answering questions. During your birthing time, I'll provide emotional and physical comfort measures to help you have the best experience possible. My position as part of your birth team is to give you the tools you need to succeed in your birth goals, whatever those may be.
I was absolutely thrilled to be able to work with Caty during my recent pregnancy and birthing experience. She was incredibly supportive and encouraging, and offered great advice throughout the entire experience. She was great with follow up, and I felt that she genuinely was invested in making my experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Immediately after birthing your baby, you'll deliver your placenta, the special organ that allowed your baby to breathe and be nourished in the womb. As an encapsulation specialist, I'll turn that important lifeline into pills that you can take, similar to a daily vitamin. This will give you more energy, balance postpartum moods, calm hormones, reduce bleeding, increase milk supply, and help you recover quicker so you can begin to feel like yourself again.
Well, I met Caty, and was thrilled! She introduced me to placenta pills and explained to me about all the benefits. I was instantly sold on them. I take them every day and I couldn't be happier with the result. My healing process seemed much quicker, I have no signs of PPD, and when I take them first thing in the morning, I feel like I have enough energy to conquer the world.
